Dr. Layton - Patient Profiles

Periodically, we will feature a different patient of whom we are particularly proud. These stories indicate the wide variety of conditions that can be related to various forms of allergies.

Jason
A nine-year old boy who was initially evaluated on November 10, 1997. His parents' chief concern focused on mood swings and a decreased attention span.

This case is an excellent example of how multiple treatment modalities (including the Feingold diet, immunotherapy and Ritalin) can effectively treat ADHD type behavior and sensory integration issues, such as phobias, sleep problems and hearing sensitivity.

A 13 year-old delightful young man who I initially evaluated on 4/6/00. His parents' primary concern was his diminished attention and focus in school and seasonal allergies.

An 8 year-old who I initially evaluated at age two. His parents' concerns were runny nose, asthma, and facial rash. This child's biologic mother had a history of seasonal allergies and severe asthma.
