Allergy Testing

Allergies are a prevalent problem among people of all ages, impacting millions of people in the United States each year. Many people suffer from food allergies, while seasonal allergies such as hay fever affect millions of people. A blood test, a skin test, or a diet that eliminates probable allergens are all options for allergy testing.

How do you prepare for allergy testing?

Before allergy testing, you’ll discuss lifestyle variables, family history, and any allergy symptoms you’ve experienced with your doctor. Typically, you will be advised to cease taking any medications that may affect your test findings for a short period of time.

What are the potential risks of an allergy test?

An allergy test has a slight probability of causing a serious allergic reaction that needs medical attention. We will be prepared to handle an allergic response if it occurs at our medical office.  With epinephrine, we can treat potentially fatal anaphylactic responses.
