    Food intolerances

The Allergological clinic most often encounters patients who have already known allergic respiratory diseases, for example hay fever, but who also notice changes in their oral cavity or in the stomach, which may result from the consumption of some related food allergens.

Recently, we have noticed an increase in patients diagnosed with allergic inflammation of the oesophagus, called eosinophilic esophagitis. This relatively 'new' disease, about which the global gastroenterology just started to learn in the last decade, manifests by difficulty in swallowing, stuck food, and chest pain.

Thanks to the many years of experience with food sensitivity, we have developed into the largest Slovenian centre for the detection and management of adult patients with celiac disease, while we also dedicate a large amount of time to patients with non-celiac sensitivity to gluten or gluten hypersensitivity.

We try our best to help the many people with lactose intolerance, fructose malabsorption, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth or altered intestinal flora, histamine intolerance, etc.
