Allergy is a common problem. 40% of the Western World have it. 16% of the Welsh have asthma. Most of us havent been tested so we dont really know. At HealthHub we have a number of approaches to diagnosis. Firstly, a thorough history and examination. Patients often have a good idea as to what they are allergic to. Then we can perform blood tests for specific IgE – the antibody that reacts with the allergen (Microtest DX). Then we can corroborate this with targeted skin prick testing, or break down the IgE into more specifics using Immunocap. Once we have properly identified significant allergy, a number of treatments can be offered, from avoidance, to drug therapy to desensitisation.
