What to Expect? The initial consultation will involve a thorough allergy and personal medical history discussion, followed by a physical examination. Laboratory tests and investigations may be done only if required. They may range from simple blood tests, X-rays & Lung Function tests, to Allergy diagnostic tests according to the requirement of the individual patient. Please stop all anti-allergy medication 3 days prior to the consultation. After your consultation, you will receive the results of your tests, with a comprehensive allergy profile.
Aim & Types of Allergy Treatment The aim of our speciality hospital is to offer a personalized and comprehensive care and service to diagnose and treat allergies. Only scientifically validated diagnostic tests and the most effective internationally recognized allergy treatments are used in this hospital.
Current allergy management aims Allergy Avoidance: To identify the allergens (causative agent) and then to remove it from the affected person's environment. Allergy Pharmacotherapy: If avoidance measures cannot be implemented, the patient may need to use allergy medication to prevent and relieve the symptoms. Allergen-Immunotherapy or Allergy Vaccination(ASIT): It is used to induce tolerance to the allergies, and reduce the intensity of the allergy and thereby minimize the use of medicines(WHO & US-FDA Approved). Allergen Immunotherapy is the closest thing to a 'Cure' for allergy.
Immunotherapy (Allergy Vaccine therapy) involves administration of gradually increasing quantities of specific allergens to an allergic patient, until a dose is reached that is effective in reducing the symptoms and disease severity in the patient. Sterling Multi Specialty Hospital’s Specific Immunotherapy (Allergy Vaccination) Immunotherapy is the only treatment strategy which treats the underlying cause of the allergic disorder. It is a highly cost-effective treatment which reduces the need for allergy medication, suppresses the severity of symptoms or even eliminate the hypersensitivity altogether. It improves the quality of life, produces long term remission of allergic symptoms and allergen related Asthma, and has no long-term side effects. Immunotherapy is the only treatment option that is known to modify the allergic disease process with a possible chance of curing the disease, whereas other therapies merely suppress the symptoms, and is approved by WHO and US-FDA.
Short term - to reduce the response to allergens trigger.
Long term - to decrease inflammatory response and prevent development of persistent disease.
In 1998 WHO (World Health Organization) proposed the term "Allergen Vaccine" to replace the older term "allergen extract", because allergen Immunotherapy is an immune modifier just as other vaccines. Allergen Specific vaccination is safe and has been proved to be extremely effective in the treatment of various allergic conditions.
Symptoms inadequately controlled by allergen avoidance measure or medications.
Patient wishing to avoid the long term use or potential adverse effects of medication.
