    What is an Allergy? 

    Allergies occur when your immune system reacts to a foreign substance by producing antibodies. These antibodies protect you from unwanted invaders that could make you sick or cause an infection, even if it isn’t. The trigger signals your immune system to release histamine and other chemicals, causing a range of allergic signs and symptoms we refer to as allergic reactions.

     

    What to do

    if you think you have an allergy

    If you believe you have an allergy and you are experiencing allergic reactions to a stimulus, the first step you can take is a self-diagnosis to narrow down the suspects behind you immune response.

    First, monitor the foods you are eating and track them in a food diary. Take note if on certain days, you feel better or worse depending on the food you ate. If you suspect your allergy is due to an environmental trigger, self-diagnose by avoiding the suspected allergic trigger and noting how you feel when it is absent.

     

    How Allergy Immunotherapy Can Help

    If you suspect you have allergies, or have confirmed your allergies with a specialist, there are ways to manage your allergies moving forward. Most allergies are uncomfortable, but ultimately harmless. However, some are life-threatening if they are bad enough.

    At Premier Primary Care, we’re proud to provide allergy immunotherapy. With this therapy, patients can get the benefits they need without the constant use of antihistamines and other medications.

    Allergy Immunotherapy is the desensitizing phase of allergens, that patients show a reaction to during the test. These allergens are introduced into the system in very small increments, and the immune system creates antibodies against these allergens to produce desensitization.

    Allergies have been proven to be a contributing factor to many other health issues patients experience from on a daily basis. If allergies are impacting your life in a negative way, contact Premier Primary Care to test for allergies and explore your options today.
