    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.

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

    Atlanta Food Allergy Treatment Center

    At our Atlanta food allergy treatment center, Dr. Chacko and his team will help you identify what food allergies can cause you health issues. Diagnosis will be determined through the following allergy testing options:

    • Skin Prick Test
    • Blood Test
    • Oral Challenge Test

    After diagnosis, Dr. Chacko will provide you with an allergy treatment plan to reduce your or your child’s reaction when exposed to the allergens that are causing the symptoms.

    Oral immunotherapy is one of several treatment options used to decrease sensitivity to foods. This has been proven to be quite effective for food allergies such as peanut allergy and egg allergy.
