Allergy Testing & Treatment
An allergy is a hyperactive immune response by an individual to substances called allergens which include dust, pollen, fungi, animal fur, insect venom, specific foods or certain medications that are usually harmless to most people.
Pulmonary Function Test for Asthma
Pulmonary function tests (also called lung function tests) are a group of noninvasive tests that help evaluate lung function. The tests measure various parameters such as lung capacity, volume, gas exchange, and rates of air flow.
Skin Testing for Environmental Allergies
Environmental allergies occur when airborne irritants make contact with an antibody called immunoglobulin E (IgE), it triggers an allergic reaction. To determine which of these airborne irritants (allergens) are the source of the allergies, a skin test may be administered by a trained professional such as an allergist or immunologist.
Skin Testing for Food Allergies
An allergic reaction to foods can make eating a daily struggle. Food allergies occur when a substance found in certain foods comes into contact with immunoglobulin E (IgE) in the body. Learning what specific triggers cause food allergies allows you to plan accordingly for better management of symptom and allergy relief.
