    Understanding Oral Immunotherapy

    Oral immunotherapy, also known as food desensitization, is a treatment that helps you build up immunities to food allergens that could otherwise be life-threatening.

    What is Oral Immunotherapy (OIT)?

    Oral immunotherapy is a treatment where a patient ingests small doses of an allergen to build up resistance.

    History of Oral Immunotherapy

    Oral immunotherapy dates back to the times of Alexander the Great. He would ingest poisons to increase immunities.

    Frequently Asked Questions About OIT

    Dr. Thomas Chacko and his team are here to answer the most common OIT questions and address your concerns.

    Testing and treatment at the Druid Hills food allergy treatment center uses a comprehensive approach in both accurately diagnosing and effectively managing a patient’s dietary sensitivities.

    • Antihistamines

    • Epinephrine Auto-Injectors

    Dr. Chacko and his colleagues also focus on educating patients about allergen avoidance and emergency management. Our goal is to alleviate symptoms, and also to improve each patient’s overall quality of life. At the first sign of food allergy symptoms, make sure to contact our Druid Hills center for assistance.
