Your Trusted Partner in Allergic respiratory diseases

Allergic respiratory diseases (ARD), including asthma, chronic rhinosinusitis and allergic rhinitis, are amongst the most common allergies worldwide. We are here to provide you with top-notch care and guidance to tackle your problems.

Understanding Allergic respiratory disease

Symptoms of Allergic respiratory disease

Allergens that can cause respiratory symptoms include:

Animals, Dust mites, Insects, Mold, Grass pollens, Tree pollens, Weed pollens, Mouse urine.

Hypersensitivity pneumonitis is an allergic reaction that causes inflammation in and around the air sacs of the lungs and the smallest airways. Dust, tiny organisms, or chemicals can cause the allergic reaction.

Causes of Allergic Respiratory disease

  • Pollen
  • Pet dander
  • Dust
  • Mold spores
  • Animal hair
  • Animal saliva

Allergy Tests

There are two basic types of allergy tests. They include:

Skin test: This test is the most reliable of allergy tests. It involves scraping a small section of skin with an allergen, then watching to see if you react. Alternatively, the allergen may be injected with a small needle or dropped onto the skin.

Blood test: A radio allergosorbent (RAST) test or the newer enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) test measures allergy-specific antibodies in your blood. These tests are less reliable than skin testing.

Asthma Tests

If you experience symptoms of allergic asthma, allergy tests can also help you identify your triggers. That way, you can avoid them and prevent future allergy attacks.

Spirometry: This test measures how much air moves in and out of your lungs.

Peak airflow: This test measures how quickly you expel air when you forcefully exhale after a deep inhalation.

Fractional exhaled nitric oxide (FeNO) test: A FeNO test measures the amount of nitric oxide in your breath, which can help determine the level of inflammation in your airways.

Provocation test: This test measures lung function after exposure to specific triggers.


                                 Allergen avoidance:

The key is to determine what substance (allergen) is causing your allergy and to try to stay away from it. That may mean avoiding any foods you’re allergic to, staying inside to avoid pollen, keeping humidity low to avoid mold, or using bedding and pillow covers to reduce dust mite exposure.

                                  Using medications:

You can find many OTC medicines to help you ease symptoms, as well as prescription medications that may reduce swelling or itchiness or even block an allergen from setting symptoms in motion.

                             Undergo immunotherapy:

This helps to keep the immune system from overreacting to allergy triggers by giving you small doses of allergens over time. Allergy shots or drops can be given for a variety of allergens but not for all.

                            Take emergency epinephrine:

In the event that you are having a severe life-threatening allergic reaction (anaphylaxis), you can give yourself a premeasured epinephrine shot at the first signs of a reaction in order for this to be effective. This can work for insect bites, food allergies, issues with drugs or medicines, and latex.

Frequently Asked Question on Allergic respiratory disease
How long do respiratory allergic reactions last?

Your allergies will last as long as your allergen exposure. Once you’re no longer around allergens, your symptoms should go away after a few hours. However, if you have inhalant allergies, your symptoms may last for several days or longer due to ongoing exposure to pets, dust mites and pollens.

What causes allergies in the respiratory system?

There are many sources of respiratory allergies; house dust contains various components such as dust mites, pet allergens, pollen and particulates that can trigger asthma and allergies. If humidity is too high, mould growth can occur, and the amount of mould spores containing allergens will increase.

Can allergies affect oxygen levels?

Allergies, also called allergic rhinitis and hay fever, are often to blame for shortness of breath. Allergens, such as pollen or dust mites, irritate the airways and cause swelling. This reduces the amount of air that can enter and exit your lungs, leading to decreased oxygen levels.

Can allergies damage lungs?

Only a small percentage of those who develop allergic reactions suffer permanent damage to the lungs. In the most serious cases the combination of the allergic reaction and the immune system’s reactions can cause lung damage.
