  • Immunotherapy (Allergy Shots): The Allergy Partners Way
    June 23, 2015
    Allergy immunotherapy, more commonly referred to as allergy shots, is the most effective treatment available for environmental allergies. By reducing your reactions to pollens, pet dander, molds and dust mites, allergy shots reduce symptoms and your need for medication. While it is a highly effective treatment, immunotherapy does not contain medication and is composed of natural protein extracts from allergens. By giving gradually increasing doses of the allergen, immunotherapy teaches your immune system to tolerate exposure to the allergens in the environment. It is highly effective in treating sinus and eye symptoms along with asthma, sinusitis and allergy induced eczema. To assure that proper treatment is provided, immunotherapy should always be prescribed by a board certified allergist. Certification by the American Board of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology assures that your doctor has received at least 2 years of additional training specifically in treating allergic diseases. Only through this intense training can a doctor gain full knowledge of immunotherapy treatment.
  • Peanut Allergy: Advances in Diagnosis and Treatment
    June 2, 2015
    It is estimated that food allergy affects approximately 5% of adults and 8% of children, with peanut allergy nearing approximately 2% of the population. A peanut allergy is when the immune system makes a type of antibody called IgE towards specific proteins in peanut. When a person with peanut allergy is exposed to these peanut proteins, the peanut specific IgE antibodies cause allergy cells (mast cells, basophils, eosinophils, etc.) to create an allergic reaction. The symptoms of an IgE mediated allergic reaction generally happen within minutes to two hours after exposure to the food and can include: itching, flushing, hives, swelling, difficulty breathing, repeated coughing, chest tightness, wheezing, hoarseness, change in voice, dizziness, weakness, fainting, low blood pressure, nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramps, or diarrhea. Such reactions can be life threatening.
