Ask Polmed Primary Care About Food Sensitivities to Better Your Nutrition and Health!

Have you ever felt itchy or ill after eating something specific? For some people, allergies are obvious. They break out in hives, their eyes get swollen, and they may even have trouble drawing a breath, resulting in immediate medical attention. For other people, allergies present as sensitivities, which are less severe than allergies but sometimes difficult to deal with. If you suspect that certain foods make you sick, come down to Polmed Primary Care & Walk-In Clinic for food sensitivity testing near Clearwater.

Did you know that roundabout 32 million people have food allergies and sensitivities in the United States alone? Allergies can be either mild or severe, but they are still there, and they could worsen to cause problems later on. Therefore, it’s important to know what your body can and cannot handle when it comes to what you eat.

Some food allergies and sensitivities begin in childhood. As a matter of fact, many children are intolerant to eggs to some degree, but it’s a sensitivity they usually grow out of. Fish, milk, and nuts, like peanuts, are common food allergies, but people typically don’t outgrow those sensitivities.

How Could Food Sensitivities Affect Your Everyday Life?

If you have a food you love but feel sick afterward, it could be due to an allergy or sensitivity that you don’t realize you have. It’s important to become aware and attentive to how you eat and what you eat. Symptoms of mild food sensitivities could include:

  • Troubles with digestion or change in bowel movements.
  • Mild to severe discomfort or abdominal bloat.
  • Nausea or vomiting after eating a certain food.
  • Swelling in the hands or fingers.
  • Excessive gassiness.

The good news? Polmed Primary Care & Walk-in Clinic has the knowledge to help you, and it all begins with food sensitivity testing near Clearwater. Call us at (727) 339-2054 for more information!

I’ve been going to CC, a Nurse Practitioner, Denise, and Sarah, at Dr. Kaszuba’s office for a long time now. I just want to say how I love this office. I found out about the office when I took an elderly patient here for her visit. They were so welcoming, I decided to switch to them for my doctor even though I live in Pinellas Park. I’ve always received the best care here.

The team at the front office is amazing I appreciate how nice Sarah has been with helping me with my appointments. The whole team does a great job and really care. Cassie Thomas

Great staff, smooth process. Booked through Zocdoc, staff called and confirmed appointment. Visit was friendly and informative. I was looking for a Primary, this office pretty much summed my decision. Thank you Polmed!

I felt very comfortable and welcomed. Doc was very knowledgeable.looking forward to having this team guide me back to health!

I wouldn’t change doctors for anything, Dr. Kaszuba is the best! I overlook the small stuff that is irrelevant ! He goes above & beyond !Not only is he a polite gentleman, but he has nailed every condition I’ve had, proving certain specialists incorrect! He’s old school knows the body in its entirety not just generally! I hope he gets rest, though! Also, his staff are awesome they love him! It’s all a breath of fresh air especially during these times. Thank you, all!

Very professional, i highly recommend

I have been a patient of Dr Kaszuba, Ben Landry, and "Ci Ci" for 15 years. I am a retired 33-year clinican myself. I credit Dr. Kaszuba for saving my life, as he recognized my symptoms at a very early stage, intervened, and took action immediately. His staff maintains a high standard of ethics in their areas of expertise especially Sarah. And have been very considerate of my health status, relaying information and communications.I travel 2 hours one- way for my appointments because of the high quality of care.
