Allergy Testing

We are experts at the two main methods of allergy testing at our Texas clinic. These include the testing of the blood and the testing of the skin (prick or intradermal). While both skin tests and blood tests are very good, we usually recommend skin testing because it is regarded as more accurate than blood testing.

Skin

Skin testing utilizes prick testing and intradermal testing. Skin testing requires putting small portions of substances (pollens, dust, molds, animal dander, etc.) into the skin, and then measuring if there is an allergic response.

Blood

Blood tests are a very common form of allergy testing, but often produce false negatives for several environmental allergens. Because of this, we recommend skin testing for the Texas patients that are able, especially if they are seeking immunotherapy. We generally reserve blood testing for younger children, people who suffer from a skin condition or patients who are unable to stop taking beta blockers or other medications that could influence skin test results.

Complete Allergy Treatment

Unlike most allergy drugs — which only treat symptoms temporarily — sublingual immunotherapy addresses the underlying cause of allergies. Allergy drops are administered under the tongue in gradually increasing dosages until the patient develops a tolerance to the allergy-causing substance.

 

Who Should Take Allergy Shots

Although most allergy sufferers can benefit from allergy drops, they’re especially ideal for people who can’t tolerate or don’t respond to allergy shots, as well as those who are unable to commit to allergy shot therapy. These people include:

Are Allergy Drops Safe

Allergy drops have been used around the world for more than 100 years, and numerous studies validate both the safety and effectiveness. The World Health Organization has endorsed sublingual immunotherapy as a viable alternative to allergy shots. The Cochrane Collaboration, the world’s most-trusted international organization dedicated to reviewing healthcare treatments, concluded that allergy drop immunotherapy significantly reduced allergy symptoms and the use of allergy medications.

PGX Testing

Pharmacogenetics testing provides predictive information about a patient’s ability to metabolize certain medications and what affect that medication has on a patient, enabling optimal medication choice and dosing.

A New Tool

Pharmacogenetics testing is a new tool in medicine. It’s just being introduced to many physicians, hospitals and clinics. Pharmacogenetics is a science that holds enormous promise, and will doubtless reduce medical costs and increase the effectiveness of many drugs in the future.

The Purpose

The purpose of pharmacogenomic testing is to find out if a medication is right for you. A simple swab sample from your cheek can help determine:

  Whether a medication may be an effective treatment for you

  What the best dose of medication is for you

  Whether you could have serious side effects from a medication

Genetic Testing

Our Genetic Testing identifies changes in chromosomes, genes, or proteins. These results can confirm or rule out a suspected genetic condition or help determine a person’s chance of developing or passing on a genetic disorder.

 

Who Should Be Tested

By looking at your family history, your doctor can tell if you’re likely to have a gene mutation that may contribute to disease. A disease might run in your family if a blood relative developed the disease at a young age or if several family members have the disease. People from certain ethnic groups may also be more likely to get certain diseases. If one of your family members already has the disease, that person should be tested first. This helps show which genes, if any, are associated with the disease.

Benefits of Genetic Testing

Here are some benefits of genetic testing:

  • You might not be so worried about getting a disease.
  • You might be able to change your lifestyle to reduce your risk of getting a disease.
  • Your doctor will know how often to check you to see if a disease is developing.
  • You might be able to take medicine to prevent the disease.

Cancer Screening

Texas Allergy Solution can also provide Cancer Screenings that will produce a comprehensive report based on an individuals patient’s DNA and RNA profile that will indicate potential susceptibility to various cancers. 

What is a Cancer Screening

Genetic testing for cancer risk is predictive testing, which means a test that can help predict the likelihood that an individual will develop cancer in his or her lifetime. Not everyone with a cancer related gene will develop cancer.

• Genetic testing helps predict the likelihood that a person will develop a disease, including some types of cancer.

• Genetic testing is a personal decision with many factors to consider.

• Anyone who decides to undergo genetic testing should receive genetic counseling before and after the test is performed.

When does the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) recommend that genetic testing be offered

• When the person has an individual or family history that suggests a genetic cause of cancer.

• When the test for the genetic condition can be adequately interpreted.

• When the results of the genetic test will help with the diagnosis, treatment, and/or management of the parent and family members at risk for cancer.
