Allergen Immunotherapy: Still Working After 100 years
Immunotherapy treatment (allergy shots) is based on a century-old concept that the immune system can be desensitized to specific allergens that trigger allergy symptoms.
Over the years, we have learned much more about allergen immunotherapy including long-term benefits and what protocols are needed to make it beneficial. Among the most important findings is that immunotherapy can provide long-term symptom relief for years after treatment is discontinued, and that it is a cost-effective approach to treating many allergies. Research has demonstrated that allergy immunotherapy can be effective in treating:
~ Allergic Asthma
~ Allergic Rhinitis and Conjunctivitis
~ Stinging Insect Allergy
~ Atopic Dermatitis
The decision to begin immunotherapy is based on several factors:
~ Length of allergy season and severity of symptoms
~ How well medications and avoiding allergens control allergy symptoms
~ Desire to avoid long-term medication use
~ Time. Immunotherapy requires a significant time commitment during the build-up phase, and a less frequent commitment during the maintenance phase. Costs vary depending on region and insurance coverage.
