How can I get tested for food allergies?
If you think you may have a single food allergy, you can be tested for it easily, or if you think you might have multiple allergies, you can get tested for a wide variety of foods. You can come see us here at Trivita Clinic for testing. The first thing we’ll do is ask you about your medical history and history of allergies and allergic reactions. If you and the doctor agree to proceed, you can get tested.
The most common kind of allergy test and the easiest test for patients is the skin prick test. Very tiny, practically pain-free needles are used for this test. It can easily indicate allergies like food allergies and others. Some other patients might benefit from getting a blood test done to check for particular allergies or multiple ones. If a patient is diagnosed with an allergy, it can be addressed easily.
How are allergies treated?
With some allergies like food allergies, a patient can simply avoid the allergen or allergens altogether. If a patient is allergic to a food like tomatoes, they might also be allergic to related foods like potatoes which can be avoided too. Some food allergies can be especially serious for a patient, especially if there’s a risk of anaphylaxis, so for these allergies, allergen avoidance is definitely necessary.
It’s possible to treat many allergies too. If a patient has mild food allergies and mild reactions, over-the-counter or prescribed antihistamines can help control the symptoms. However, this treatment isn’t enough for a patient with severe allergic reactions. It may be necessary for this patient to get an EpiPen. In some patient cases, an EpiPen can be life-saving. Sometimes, like in cases of anaphylaxis, it’s necessary to go to the ER (emergency room) as well.
Some patients will benefit greatly from long-term immune strengthening treatment. This can help a patient develop an actual tolerance or even an immunity to an allergen. This treatment is usually done with allergy shots that we provide here at Trivita Clinic along with the other treatments we’ve mentioned.
How is asthma treated?
There isn’t a cure for asthma (allergic or non-allergic), but there are very effective ways to manage it. There are two kinds of asthma medication: long-term control meds and instant relief medication. We also provide these treatments at our clinic, and if an asthmatic patient needs a referral to see a specialist, we can provide that referral.
