Did you know? Allergies are the 6th leading cause of chronic illness in the U.S. with more than 50 million Americans experiencing various types of allergies each year. Identifying and treating allergies can lead to a healthier, symptom-free way of life.
Allergy symptoms occur when your immune system overreacts to an allergen—something that usually is harmless, such as plant pollen, dust mites, molds, insect stings or food. Exposure to allergens at times when the body’s defenses are weak, such as after an illness or during pregnancy, also may play a role in developing allergies. Allergies can occur at any age and you can acquire new allergies at any time in your life, even if you have not had any previous symptoms. Sometimes allergies go away, but they also can come back years later.
Our allergy specialists offer several different options for allergy testing and solutions to help determine allergic reactions. Some tests detect immediate allergic reactions, which develop within minutes of exposure to an allergen while other tests detect delayed allergic reactions, which develop over a period of several days.
We address a vast number of food and airborne allergens, such as seasonal allergies, hay fever, eczema, rashes, blisters, hives, pet hair, and animal dander, pollens, dust and much more. Some tests detect immediate allergic reactions, which develop within minutes of exposure to an allergen while other tests detect delayed allergic reactions, which develop over a period of several days.
