food allergies2 300x148 Autoimmune Disease and Food AllergiesAt Taylorville Urgent Care, we are proud to offer exams and testing for autoimmune disease and food allergies for residents of Taylorville, Illinois, and the surrounding areas. All testing and examinations are performed by Angela Anselm FNP-BC, a Certified Gluten Practitioner with extensive training in gluten sensitivity and celiac disease. Consultations include two visits during which we will discuss the health and lifestyle of the patient as well as test for over 96 known allergens. We are also able to complete blood testing for celiac disease, and all autoimmune disease blood work and testing for autoimmune disease and food allergies are sent to a lab. After two weeks, the results are returned and discussed with the patient. Angela will personally go over the results and then suggest changes to the patient’s diet and create a health and wellness plan.

It is important to remember that the testing does not diagnose autoimmune disease, but by following the suggestions on the health and wellness plan, patients may be able to improve the symptoms of their food allergies, celiac disease, or other autoimmune disorder. By determining exactly what foods are causing your symptoms, you will be able to:

  • Remove those foods from your diet for an improvement or elimination of your symptoms
  • Possibly stop some or all of the medications you are required to take to manage your symptoms

In addition to providing autoimmune disease, food allergies, and celiac disease testing, we are also available to provide treatment for many illnesses and injuries that require immediate treatment. We are also able to provide on-site X-rays, lab testing, and physical exams.
