We offer the Modified Quantitative testing. This is a two-step process that takes approximately 2 hours. The first part is a skin prick test on the back. The second part is intradermal injections on the upper arms.
We offer two immunotherapy options. A build-up process is started to reach a maintenance dose that is adequate to build immunity to your allergies. Injections begin with a weekly injection that lasts up to 1 year; when maintenance is reached the goal is a monthly injection. Sublingual is a daily drop under the tongue and has a 3 month build-up; when maintenance is reached the daily dose continues. Both are recommended to continue for 3-5 years.
We test for environmental allergies; weeds, grasses, trees, dust mite, molds, and epidermals (this includes cat, dog, horse, feather, cockroach). We do not test for food allergies.
Once maintenance is reached, we expect you to notice changes. The amount of time this takes depends on the immunotherapy option you choose and the severity of your allergies.
To decrease or eliminate the need for allergy and/or asthma medications. The “unified airway” is affected by allergies and asthma. We hope to see an improvement in asthma as well. Commonly, allergies are asthma triggers. If we can identify triggers through your symptom history and testing, it is likely we can treat those allergies.
You must be off antihistamines for 7 days. This will allow the skin to react to something you are allergic to. Beta blockers and tricyclic antidepressants are drug classes that are contraindicated for testing and immunotherapy. Consult with your prescribing provider regarding this.
