For millions of americans, allergies present an invisible battle constantly being waged. A fresh spring day may be heavenly for some but may cause a nightmare allergic reaction for others. It may seem like these allergens are attacking you, but your allergic reactions is actually you body trying to protect you.
Foreign substances are constantly bombarding you body. In response, your body has developed an immune system that produces antibodies to protect you. But sometimes immune systems overreact, producing in excess a certain antibody known as IgE, which causes allergic reactions.
How do I find out what I’m allergic to?
The first step is to find out what those triggers are by meeting with one of our Allergy Specialists. We use a state-of-the-art method called Modified Quantitative Testing (MQT) to determined which substances set off your immune system.
