ALLERGY TESTING AND IMMUNOTHERAPY
Breathe Easier with BreatheSleepMD Clinic: Your Allergies and Asthma Solution
If you're grappling with the challenges of allergies and asthma, you're not alone. BreatheSleepMD Clinic is your trusted partner in providing expert guidance and comprehensive solutions to help you regain control over your allergies and asthma symptoms.
Understanding Allergies and Asthma Allergies and asthma are both immune system reactions that cause discomfort and breathing difficulties. Allergies can trigger symptoms such as sneezing, runny nose, itchy eyes, and skin rashes. Asthma, on the other hand, involves inflammation and narrowing of the airways, leading to coughing, wheezing, and shortness of breath.
Precise Allergy Testing At BreatheSleepMD Clinic, we specialize in precise allergy testing. Our experienced specialists utilize state-of-the-art diagnostic methods to identify the specific allergens responsible for your symptoms. These tests may include skin prick tests or blood tests to determine your allergic triggers accurately.
Effective Immunotherapy Immunotherapy, often referred to as allergy shots or sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT), is a highly effective treatment approach offered at BreatheSleepMD Clinic. This therapy involves introducing tiny amounts of allergens into your system to build tolerance gradually.
How Immunotherapy Works:
Allergy Shot: With allergy shots, our team administers small, increasing doses of allergens via injections over time. This helps your body develop immunity to the allergens, reducing your allergic reactions.
Sublingual Drops: Sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT) drops work by gradually boosting your immune system through exposing you to small amounts of known allergens. As opposed to allergy shots, allergy drops are designed to be taken at home.
The Benefits of Immunotherapy:
- Long-lasting Relief: Immunotherapy can provide long-term symptom relief, reducing your reliance on medications.
- Reduced Allergy Severity: It can also decrease the severity of allergic reactions and asthma symptoms.
- Improved Quality of Life: Many individuals experience a significant improvement in their overall quality of life after undergoing immunotherapy.
