Why do I need allergy testing?

Many women suffer from allergies, though the cause is often uncertain. Some allergies, like seasonal and environmental allergies, have a more obvious trigger, such as pet dander, pollen, or dust. Food allergies can be more subtle but cause equally debilitating symptoms.

Your provider can use skin and blood testing identify the exact allergens causing your allergy symptoms. 

How will my allergies be treated?

You will be counseled by your provider on how to best avoid and eliminate allergens from your life. Treatment may involve symptom management, but addressing the root cause of your allergies will likely involve dietary and lifestyle changes, in addition to nutritional supplements.
