Life-Threatening Food Allergies
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.
