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.
Duluth Adult And Pediatric Food Allergy Treatment
Both adults and children can suffer with food allergies. Unfortunately, there’s no guarantee that a person will outgrow an allergy, so the recommended strategy is to visit an experienced allergist. Testing and diagnosis can reveal exactly what you are dealing with.
Some people with pollen-food allergy syndrome, for example, can react to substances that are related to other allergens. It’s important to accurately diagnose these issues for you or your family, because treatment options can bring both symptom reduction and peace of mind.
While avoiding an allergen is sound advice, today’s patients will have more freedom by reducing sensitivity to these substances. This oral immunotherapy treatment, or OIT, can protect an allergic person against possible severe reactions by gradually consuming very small amounts of the allergen.
