We are dedicated to giving our patients the best possible, individualized care in order to enhance their quality of life. We think that the most crucial function of a doctor is that of an educator, and we work to empower our patients by educating them about their health issues so that they can take an active part in the treatment and management of their conditions. We offer the highest standard of diagnosis and therapy for allergies, asthma, and immunology. In a private, autonomous practise, Allergy West provides care for both children and adults. https://www.facebook.com/Allergy-West-740880565956911/?ref=page_internal https://www.pinterest.com/allergywest/
The allergic person makes too much of a certain protein in the body, called IgE antibody. The overproduction of this protein may result in the development of various allergic conditions such as allergic rhinitis (hay fever), allergic asthma, venom sensitivity, food or drug allergy. Xolair is a drug that acts by binding to the IgE antibody in the blood stream and hence neutralizes (blocking) its actions. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved Xolair for the treatment of patients with moderate to severe allergic asthma and chronic urticaria (hives).
Spirometry is a common test used to diagnose asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and certain other conditions that affect breathing. Spirometry may also be used periodically to check how well your lungs are working once you’re being treated for a chronic lung condition.
