Allergy Testing.

Help is available. There are laboratory tests designed to evaluate your body’s immune response to food and environmental substances. You can even test possible sources of delayed reactions, such as hidden allergies and allergies that lurk for hours or even days before becoming detectable. Traditional skin testing for allergies only identifies immediate immunoglobulin IgE reactions, producing no information concerning delayed IgE hypersensitivity reactions, the so-called “hidden allergies.” Our Physicians are able to test for 98 food and environmental allergens without having to do the traditional and painful skin prick test.

Next week we continue with Allergy Treatment.
