Allergology

Allergic diseases in most cases begin to appear in childhood, as it was then formed by the immune system responsible for the body’s reaction to allergens.

Symptoms:

The most common symptoms of allergies are: lacrimation, rhinorrhea (runny nose), sneezing, coughing, as well as the appearance of skin reactions: redness, itching, spots, swelling.

Major diseases in allergy:

  • Allergic rhinitis – an inflammation of the nasal mucosa, induced by a non-infectious factors.
  • Bronchial asthma – a non-infectious inflammation of the bronchial tubes, and at the level of the lungs that develops in response to the body contact with the allergen.
  • Seasonal hay fever – Seasonal allergic reaction to the pollen of flowering plants.
  • Atopic dermatitis – this is one of the most common diseases of allergic nature, manifested in severe, affecting the skin. The disease is dermatitis caused by genetics and, unfortunately, is chronic.
  • Angioedema – this is the most serious disease, which can lead to death.

Treatment and prevention:

The allergology specialist first conducts allergy tests to determine the cause of the disease. In addition to drugs that reduce the body’s sensitivity to an allergen, can be carried allergen-specific immunotherapy. But the most important in the prevention of allergic reactions of the body is the avoidance of contact with the allergen.

I. Pollinosis (rhinitis, conjunctivitis)

1 Collecting the patient’s history

  • Overview
  • Analysis of factors triggering the disease, environmental factors and climate  factors
  • Exposure to pets and professional factors
  • Aggravating effects of stress
  • Exams undertaken previously

2 Skin test for allergens
The skin test is carried out on the forearm, using respiratory allergens and those that are most commonly found in the environment. The speicialists introduces a tiny amount of allergen into the skin, eliciting a small, localised allergic response, in the form of a wheal (bump) and flare (redness) at the site of testing. The test result is ready in 15-20 minutes after the meeting.

3 Measurement of exhaled nitric oxide FENO (NO Aerocrine)
Examination of airway which determines the intensity of the allergic disease, and select appropriate methods of treatment. The result is expressed in parts per million and provides a very accurate estimate of allergic inflammation.

4 Laboratory tests (if necessary)
Blood test. Identification of common allergic immunoglobulin E (IgE). Detection of specific immunoglobulin E (IgEs) based on the patient’s medical history and skin tests. Respiratory and food fadiatop (IgE specific (3-5). Composition of the blood with the distribution of leucocytes and to determine the proportion of eosinophils.

4 Spirometry before and after beta-2 stimulation
Examination of the respiratory tract, which allows to determine the amount of air in the lungs, as well as the body’s response to certain drugs.
Decoder respiratory charts after inhalation of beta 2-stimulant.

5 Laboratory tests (if necessary)

  • Blood test
  • General Immunoglobulin E (IgE)
  • Determination of specific immunoglobulin E (IgEs) based on the patient’s medical history and skin tests
  • Respiratory and food fadiatop (Pharmacia differentiate atopy) IgEs (3-5)
  • Composition of the blood with the distribution of white blood cells and to determine the proportion of eosinophilic granulocytes
