Allergy diagnostics and therapy

Allergies in the form of hypersensitive reactions of our immune system are ever increasing as a result of a number of factors.

For diagnostics, several tests are available, such as the prick, scratch, intracutaneous or epicutaneous tests, blood tests like IgE or RAST identification or special elimination diets.

Apart from avoiding the allergen, a possible approach would be the latest drug therapies combined with subcutaneous and oral sensitisation treatments. Reducing the level of exposure to allergens at the source – in job related or home environments – as well as dietary changes are part of the therapy.
