The Allergy & Asthma Clinic at TSC Hospital places due emphasis on the diagnosis and management of allergy & bronchial asthma (Pediatric & adult) depending on the severity of the condition. The clinic is managed by an expert in this area and promises to provide a personalized treatment for the patients.
The diagnosis is arrived at through latest investigation methods like Specific Immunoglobulin E (sIgE) and Skin Prick Test (SPT). Both these tests are aimed at screening for an allergy to a specific allergen. While sIgE test provides the cause of allergies with reasonable accuracy, Skin Prick Test (SPT) is the most sensitive test for finding out the cause of allergies and hence is the most preferred option based on which further treatment plan is decided.
Treatment to the Allergy/Asthma is by way of Immune Therapy (Sublingual), which is the most advanced treatment available all over the world for patients having uncontrolled allergy and asthma. In this therapy, an increasing dose of the same allergens found to be tested positive during the SPT is introduced to the patient in a controlled manner so that the patient gets slowly desensitized and finally he/she becomes no longer allergic.
Children & adults with moderate/severe persistent allergic rhinitis/asthma/food allergy/allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis/recurrent nasal polyps can reap significant benefits from SPT followed by Immune Therapy.
