How Can Allergy Diagnostic Services Benefit You?

How Can Allergy Diagnostic Services Benefit You?

Allergies may be easy to recognize by their symptoms but uncovering the cause of your allergies requires testing. Allergy diagnostic services from Advanced Allergy & Asthma Associates, Inc., in Crystal Lake and Elgin, Illinois, can help identify the triggers of your allergies so you can avoid them and better manage your allergy symptoms.

Purpose of Allergy Testing

In order to treat an allergy, Dr. Noga Askenazi and our team have to pinpoint the type of allergy you have and what’s triggering your symptoms. People can be allergic to food, substances in their environment, chemicals in household or garden products, pet dander, and the list goes on. Determining what type of allergy you have and its source is essential to outline a treatment plan.

Once we’ve diagnosed a specific allergy and pinpointed its trigger, you can take measures to avoid these allergens to prevent irritating symptoms. This may entail a change of diet or lifestyle, switching to eco-friendly household or garden products, or avoiding certain elements in your environment. Avoidance, however, may not be enough to totally resolve your allergy issues.

Benefits of Allergic Diagnostic Services

For your health and safety, it’s important to have a clearcut diagnosis of your condition. Allergic diagnostic testing provides that information. This can benefit you in the following ways:

Creating an effective treatment plan: Dr. Askenazi can recommend medications to manage your symptoms so your allergies don’t interfere with daily living. In the case of food allergies, we can help you develop a diet plan that excludes your food allergens but still provides all the nutrients your body needs for healthy living.

Helping you manage your circumstances: Allergy testing can help you make wise decisions concerning your diet, environment, and lifestyle to avoid putting your health at risk.

Avoiding serious consequences – Some allergies, like peanut allergies, can produce severe consequences. You can be alerted to your condition through allergy testing to prevent severe allergic reactions.
