Your provider has the ability to manually add your food allergies, sensitivities, and preferences, if you verbalize them to your provider during an appointment, or over email.
However, your provider may include a section on your intake forms that allows you to indicate any allergies, sensitivities. You can access your forms:
- Through your email, where your provider has likely sent you a form completion request.
- From your Healthie dashboard, by clicking on the "Fill out Forms" button.
- By going to the "Forms" tab in the left hand side menu.
Once you've found the form containing the allergy fields, you can manually enter the type of allergy, the allergy itself, if it's active, any reactions, and the severity. You can also enter the type, food, and reactions for an intolerances, and the type and food for any preferences.
You can go back and edit or update this form at any time, by going to the "Forms" tab on the left hand side menu, selecting the appropriate form, and clicking on "Edit."
