Allergy Drops Denver, Colorado
Sublingual immunotherapy, also known as allergy drops, has been used in the U.S. for more than 35 years, with research dating back 40 years, Its use dates approximately 100 yew-s in some parts of the world. Yet many allergy sufferers have heard little about this treatment option. Thanks to an increase in European research over the past decade and tremendous growth in the use of allergy drops worldwide, we now have valid scientific evidence that corroborates what many have known for decades---allergy drops are both safe and effective. Sublingual immunotherapy will likely prove to be one of the most important innovations in allergy treatment in the past century.
Until allergy drops are more widely available in the U.S. and more resources are dedicated to educating providers and patients about allergy drops, it's important to understand the facts about this treatment to help you determine whether it's the right course of treatment for you,
Who should take allergy drops?
Although most allergy sufferers can benefit from allergy drops, they're especially ideal for people who can't tolerance or don't respond to allergy shots, as well as people who are unable to commit to allergy shot therapy. These people include:
• Infants and children
• Highly sensitive people
• Those with chronic conditions including sinusitis
*Allergy drops have proven especially helpful for children with eczema and recurrent ear infections, which often have underlying allergic causes. Research shows that many children with untreated eczema and allergies often develop asthma and other chronic conditions later in life, so treating them early can have life-long benefits.
Are allergy drops safe? Is there research validating their effectiveness?
Allergy drops have been used around the world for more than 60 years, and numerous studies validate both the safety and effectiveness. In fact, the World Health Organization has endorsed sublingual immunotherapy as a viable alternative to injection therapy. The Cochrane Collaboration, the world's most-trusted international organization dedicated to reviewing healthcare treatments, recently concluded allergy drop immunotherapy significantly reduced allergy symptoms and use of allergy medications.
