Allergens add up

Case history rarely tells the whole story. Before deciding on what measures to take, it is essential to get the complete picture to understand the underlying disease process.

Rather than just identifying what may seem the obvious allergen, it is of utmost importance to map all the allergens that together contribute to the symptoms of the allergic patient.

Allergens add up and promote the allergic inflammation and further increase sensitivity.

  • 80?% of allergy patients are polysensitised, i.e. allergic to more than one allergen
  • Today’s average primary care patient is sensitised to four or more allergens
