Who qualifies for the Airborne Sensitivity Test?
Ages 2 and up, initially qualify for this testing before a medical necessity is provided. The Airborne Sensitivity Test is a great tool to assist your physician in diagnosing patients. Allergies have been proven to be contributing factors to many health issues patients suffer from on a daily basis.
How are Allergens selected for this test?
An airborne study is performed for the top allergens geographically specific to the area that has been proven to trigger chronic allergies and contributing issues related to allergies.
How is testing performed? How will it feel?
Airborne Sensitivity Testing is virtually pain free. Testing feels like a hairbrush is being lightly pressed against the skin. A small allergy applicator filled with airborne allergens specific to the geographical region, is applied to the skin to abrade/scratch the skin to cause a local reaction within 10-15 minutes and ultimately reveal the true airborne sensitivity you have been suffering from on a daily basis.
How long does this test take?
The testing takes approximately 25-30 minutes from start to finish, including results.
What is Airborne Immunotherapy?
Airborne Immunotherapy is the treatment and desensitizing to the allergens you show a positive reaction to during the Airborne Sensitivity Test. These allergens are introduced into the system in very small increments. The immune system then creates antibodies against these allergens to produce desensitization.
How long does it take to have relief while on the Immunotheraphy Program?
The Immune response and initial results to the Airborne Immunotherapy varies from patient to patient, but the majority of patients see some relief within the first five months of treatment. Studies have proven Airborne Immunotherapy is a 1 to 5 year desensitizing treatment plan to allergen sensitivities depending on severity and effectiveness of Immuno-response to the antigen regimen created for the patient. The initial Airborne Immunotherapy regimen created is for a 1 year regimen.
