Pollen, dust mites, molds, and pets are all common allergies that many suffer from. Occasionally, your body can mistakenly identify these as a threat. The body produces antibodies to try to fight off the threat and it is these antibodies that produce reactions. Depending on the allergen, you can have sneezing, swollen eyes, or a runny nose.
Skin prick testing can be done on pediatric and adult patients and it is the most common allergy test performed. This test is simple and safe with results provided within 15-20 minutes. This will give you the opportunity to receive a diagnosis and management plan during your appointment.
Prana Health’s staff can perform breathing tests and in-house scopes, tailor an asthma education plan, and enroll your child in our state-of-the-art inhaler monitoring program. As we monitor the need for the inhaler, we will look for early signs of worsening asthma. This monitoring allows us to step in quickly and adjust medications when needed. Prana Health can provide pulmonary function testing starting at age three as well as respiratory education with air quality testing within the home.
