Food allergies impact nearly 50 million people each year in the United States. The symptoms can range from minor discomforts, such as tummy aches and diarrhea, to life-threatening reactions, like anaphylaxis.

Dr. Manuel Torres, Family Medicine Physician at Baptist Health Primary Care, says it is a life threatening and serious issue. “Sometimes, you need to be put in the hands of experts and that’s why being cautious with your primary care physician is essential,” he highlights.
