How do you diagnose & treat allergies & asthma?

Accurate diagnosis is the key for effective treatment. We obtain the most complete and accurate patient history available; evaluate the patient lifestyle and environment, specific physical examination, skin tests, selected blood tests and evaluation of lung function. This leads to correct diagnosis, rapid treatment, and fast relief. Although there is no cure for allergic diseases, almost complete long term control of symptoms is achievable by environmental and food control, special avoidance programs, certain medications and by desensitization allergy shots (immunotherapy) which carries approximately 85% success rate. Your questions are welcomed.

 

My nose is 100% shut, breath from my mouth, can’t sleep & always cough.

These are common allergy symptoms. Allergy causes the nose to swell and secret excess mucus, resulting in stuffy & runny nose and postnasal drip, which produce the cough to clear your throat. Cough can also be from the lungs if the nose allergy advances causing asthma, which happens in 85% of nasal allergy cases. More symptoms are itchy nose, nosebleed, and loss of smell & taste, sinus & ear infections, headaches & eye irritation. Allergy treatment should be very helpful to you. Your questions are welcomed.

 

How serious is asthma?

Asthma is a serious disease. Death from asthma is declining in adults but not in children.  In both ages the incidence is rising for unknown reason. Quality of life deteriorates in both age groups for patient and family. Asthma causes frequent pneumonias & lung collapse; and can lead to emphysema, which is a non-reversible damage of both lungs. Allergy is the most common cause of asthma in all ages. Detecting & treating the allergies will prevent the progress of a potentially life threatening disease before permanent changes occur in the lungs. Your questions are welcomed.
