    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.

    Before treating your food allergy, we will diagnose the allergen and then determine the best treatment option.

    Top-Rated Food Alpharetta Allergy Specialist

    You may actually have a food allergy even if you suspect it is something like hay fever. At our Alpharetta food allergy treatment center we have a process to find the answer and the solution. Allergy testing options include these procedures:

    • Skin Prick Test
    • Blood Test
    • Oral Challenge Test

    Once our allergy specialists have made a diagnosis after testing, allergy patients receive a personalized allergy treatment plan. Patients experience relief as well as a plan designed to essentially desensitize the person to an allergen, greatly reducing the chance of a dangerous reaction.

    This desensitization is accomplished through oral immunotherapy (OIT), also known as desensitization treatment. This promising treatment can even address very serious sensitivities such as egg and peanut allergy issues.
