Dr. Kruppstadt graduated from the University of Texas Health Science
Center at San Antonio in 1990 and completed her pediatric internship and
residency at William Beaumont Army Medical Center in El Paso in 1993. She
promptly earned her Board Certification from the American Board of Pediatrics in
1993, and she is a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics.
She served as a U.S. Army pediatrician at Ft. Hood, Texas and then
relocated to The Woodlands, Texas in 1995. She has since worked as a general
pediatrician in various venues, including Texas Children’s Pediatrics and Texas
Children's Urgent Care, and she served as a pediatric hospitalist for Baylor
College of Medicine at St. Luke's Hospital in The Woodlands, Texas.
Dr. Kruppstadt’s functional medicine and pediatrics practice focuses on
genetics, nutrition, and wellness. Functional medicine seeks to uncover the
underlying causes and triggers of chronic illness (such as recurrent ear infections,
asthma, allergies, eczema, autoimmune problems, autism spectrum, ADD/ADHD, OCD, depression, anxiety, insomnia, obesity, etc.),
utilizing genetic and other specialized lab testing. A personalized treatment
plan, based on nutritional and biochemical imbalances and the unique genetic
fingerprint of each patient, is generated.
Our goal is vibrant health, not just the absence
of disease. Nutrition, lifestyle modification (quality sleep, relaxation,
exercise, proper hydration), and supplementation may all be part of the
recommended treatment plan.
