There are certain things in life that you don’t want to trust to just anyone. You wouldn’t seek legal advice from your dentist, or try to get your car repaired by a general contractor. In the same manner, it wouldn’t be prudent to see anyone but a specialist to diagnose and treat allergic symptoms.

Families in the area of Elgin and Crystal Lake, IL trust in their pediatric/allergy immunology specialist at Advanced Allergy & Asthma Associates/Food Allergy Center of Illinois for expert advice and treatment for conditions such as asthma, allergies, and immunodeficiency disorders.

Why specialized care matters

In order to effectively manage allergic conditions, accuracy in diagnosis is a must. An allergist has received the focused education and training to facilitate this goal. At Advanced Allergy & Asthma Associates/Food Allergy Center of Illinois, Dr. Askenazi and Dr. Hahn identify the cause of distressing, disruptive symptoms through a range of diagnostic tests such as skin patch testing, skin prick testing, or specific blood tests. Diagnosis of a food allergy may involve the monitored consumption of suspected trigger foods.

Patients with allergies often also have asthma. For this reason, an allergy specialist may suggest lung function testing. Data measured with a spirometry device can detect conditions such as emphysema, bronchitis, asthma, and other sources of breathing difficulty.

Symptom relief through specialized care

The goal of treatment in our practice is to achieve satisfactory results. We do this by basing treatment on accurate diagnostic data that has shown us the nature of your allergic condition. Many people use over-the-counter remedies to reduce allergy symptoms. However, an allergy specialist seeks both immediate relief and long-term management, which may involve:

  • Lifestyle modifications that minimize exposure to triggers such as certain foods, pet dander, and irritating chemical substances.
  • Immunotherapy may be used as a method of training the immune system to view allergens differently. Allergy shots expose you to minute amounts of an offensive substance, in order to build tolerance.

If you live near Elgin or Crystal Lake, you can receive the help you need in the management of your allergies, asthma, and other related concerns. Call 847 888 8802.
