Food Sensitivity Testing with Dr. Dipti Bavishi Can Determine if You Have Gastrointestinal Disorders
A gastrointestinal (GI) disorder could severely disrupt your life and may indicate an underlying health problem. Finding out what to do is essential and there are methods available that can detect these problems early. Some GI problems have been discovered to be associated with food sensitivity testing. This, along with dietary modification, has been met with a large amount of success for many patients. Dr. Dipti Bavishi often treats patients using food sensitivity testing, at her gastroenterology clinic, to help them determine whether they have a food intolerance that affects the GI tract, the area of the body where food is digested and absorbed. Acid reflux disease, gastric and duodenal ulcers, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), hemorrhoids, colitis, and colon cancer can all affect the GI tract.
Dr. Bavishi is a Houston gastroenterologist who has spent years studying gastrointestinal disorders and has successfully treated many patients since 1995. She pursues treatment plans for her patients tirelessly until they are matched with a treatment plan that helps them manage the disorder. She is double board-certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) in Internal Medicine and Gastroenterology and is a member of the American College of Gastroenterology (ACG), the Harris County Medical Society (HCMS), the Texas Medical Association (TMA), and the Texas Society of Gastroenterology (TSGE).
Dr. Bavishi can perform food sensitivity testing to find out patients’ reactions to certain foods and then determine what treatment plan will work the best for them. Patients can undergo the different types of tests depending on their needs. Often, many of these tests are designed to measure the quantity of antibodies the body produces to a specific food reaction. In other tests, white blood cells are harvested, cultured and exposed to food particles.
If you are having a negative reaction to something you eat, even hours after it was consumed, you could possibly be suffering from a gastrointestinal disorder and may need to get food sensitivity testing. Make an appointment today with Dr. Bavishi, a Houston doctor, and receive quality treatment that is designed to help you return to living a pain-free, healthy lifestyle. Bad reactions to food can cause a patient to experience a burning sensation in the throat or in the stomach. It could also be a sign of acid reflux disease or gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) that may require acid reflux treatment to ease the pain and help heal the esophagus.
