    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.

    Johns Creek Food Allergy Testing Center

    People suffering food allergy symptoms in Johns Creek have a great resource to address their issues and feel better. Dr. Chacko will determine which of the hundreds of allergenic foods are affecting you or your family. Food allergy testing methods include:

    • Skin Prick Test
    • Blood Test
    • Oral Challenge Test

    These tests help our allergist diagnose the exact nature of the problem. This understanding allows us to create an effective, individualized treatment plan to reduce their symptoms.

    The latest food allergy treatment methods include oral immunotherapy. Like it sounds, the patient consumes a small amount of the allergen. Dosing with very small amounts can produce results that bring less sensitivity, and less chance of adverse effects such as anaphylaxis.
