    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.

    The Best Food Allergy Specialist Serving Canton, Georgia

    When you experience allergy-type symptoms at certain times of the year, or have a strong reaction after eating a food that most people take for granted, you need help. Solving the allergy problem and gaining more freedom is certainly possible, and it starts with the right testing and an accurate diagnosis from a food allergy specialist. Tests include:

    • Skin Prick Test
    • Blood Test
    • Oral Challenge Test

    While you might suspect that certain allergens are causing your symptoms, proper testing helps lead to the correct diagnosis. Note that all allergy testing, including the oral challenge test, is performed under close supervision in our center. The best allergy treatment is individually tailored to the patient, and at our highly-rated food allergy treatment center serving Canton, that’s exactly what you will receive.

    For food allergies – including serious allergic reactions to eggs, peanuts, milk and more – oral immunotherapy treatment (OIT) can make a real difference. This “new treatment” has been known over centuries, and helps remove fear as it physically desensitizes patients to an allergen.
