Consider the AllerSmart IgE test as a pre-screen for your patient's allergy treatment. We strongly recommend they consult with their medical professional on the next steps upon receiving results. 

 

We recommend patients pursue a clinical diagnosis of their allergy IgE hypersensitivity. To determine the severity of an allergy, additional IgE scratch, and food challenge testing may be required.

Subcutaneous Allergy Immunotherapy Shots

Allergy shots are regular injections over a period of time — generally around three to five years — to stop or reduce allergy attacks. They are compounded on a name patient basis, to include the patient's offending allergens. Further testing may be required.

Over time, injections buildup as prescribed by your doctor's dosage schedule. This helps get your body used to the allergens. As you desensitize, your immune system builds up a tolerance to the allergens, causing your allergy symptoms to diminish over time.

Sublingual Allergy Immunotherapy Drops

Similar to allergy shots, drops and tablets are taken daily over a period of time — generally around three to five years — to stop or reduce allergy attacks. Drops are compounded on a name patient basis, to include the patient's offending allergens.

Over time, the drops strength and number buildup as prescribed by your doctor's dosage schedule. This helps get your body used to the allergens. As you desensitize, your immune system builds up a tolerance to the allergens, causing your allergy symptoms to diminish over time.
