ASTHMA

Asthma causes the inside walls of the body’s airways to become sore, swollen, and sensitive. These airways may have reacted to allergens or irritants. As airways get more narrow lungs take in less air.

Compliance to your Asthma Treatment Plan is important to your health and wellness – even your life.

Biologics  are a new treatment method that targets different molecules in the body that contribute to asthma. Used with your inhaler, biologic therapy can help reduce asthma attacks for patients with frequent episodes and symptoms of asthma.

Schedule a consultation and together we can determine if you can benefit from any of these therapies based on your symptoms, the medications you are already on, and your blood test results.

ALLERGY

Allergies are a hypersensitivity of the immune system. The disorder may cause asthma, sinus issues as well as allergic reactions to normally harmless environmental substances known as allergens. These allergic reactions are acquired and predictable. The reaction is often quite rapid.

New technology is available to help more accurately diagnose and treat allergies. Allergy drops (sublingual immunotherapy) can treat allergies without injections. Small doses of an allergen under the tongue can boost tolerance to the substance and reduce symptoms.

Before you suffer through a new allergy season, give us a call to determine if allergy drops are the allergy answer you’ve been seeking.

Immunology News

Reports Link Asthma to Fast Food

In an analysis that included 16 studies “Respirology” a peer-reviewed medical journal, revealed a link between fast food consumption and an increased likelihood of having asthma, wheeze, and several other allergic diseases such as pollen fever, eczema, and rhino-conjunctivitis.

Obviously, poor quality diet contributes to the development and progression of asthma and wheeze via multiple mechanisms. In terms of different types of fast food consumption in the reviewed studies, hamburger intake was most prominently associated with allergic diseases in a dose-dependent manner, irrespective of consumers’ income.

The authors note “Additional studies are needed to confirm the relationships seen in this analysis, however, […]

Why Does Cold Air Affect Asthma?

Winter months and cold air are hard on asthma.

Here are several reasons why:

Cold air is dry.

The airways transporting oxygen to your lungs are lined with fluid. If the air you breath is dry this fluid evaporates quicker than it can be replaced. Without that thin layer of fluid, dry airways become irritated and swollen.

Cold air also stimulates your body to produce histamine. If you have allergies, you are familiar with histamine – it’s is the same chemical your body makes during an allergy attack.

Cold increases mucus.

In addition to keeping your airways moist, this thin layer of fluid also helps to […]

Allergy Drops

What is Sublingual Immunotherapy?

Sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT) is an alternative way to treat allergies without injections. SLIT treats the cause of allergies by giving small doses of what a person is allergic to, which increases “immunity” to the allergen and reduces the allergic symptoms. Unlike injection immunotherapy, which is given as shots, sublingual immunotherapy is given as drops under the tongue. The safety and efficacy of allergy drops is still being established by the FDA, and they are only used off-label in the United States.

When symptoms present, an allergist must first use standard allergy testing to confirm the patient’s sensitivities. Once […]
