Tyler's Story of Living with Severe Food Allergies

The primary allergy treatment is strict avoidance of the allergen, but what can patients do when they have dozens of allergies? When you watch this featured video, you’ll meet Tyler, a young child who became seriously ill every time his parents fed him. As a baby, he was even allergic to his mother’s breast milk. An allergy doctor diagnosed him with food protein-induced enterocolitis (FPIES).

FPIES specifically affects the gastrointestinal tract. It’s tricky for general practitioners to diagnose, since it isn’t detectable through standard allergy tests. When Tyler’s parents began working with an allergy specialist, they were able to identify a broader range of foods that he could safely eat.

At Allergy & Asthma Specialistsâ„ , we are committed to improving quality of life for patients with food allergies. Call 1 (800) 86-COUGH to find high-quality allergy treatment in Philadelphia, Blue Bell, King of Prussia, Jenkintown, Doylestown, Lansdale, Pottstown, or Collegeville, Pennsylvania.
