Allergy Testing

We have two ways to determine whether one is allergic to a specific allergen. A blood test, known as RAST is very effective in determining whether one has allergies. The alternative is allergy skin testing, which is also quite accurate.

A chest X-ray may be obtained as well as some blood tests. We then try to put the history, physical examination, pulmonary function tests, allergy tests, and laboratory tests together to work out the best possible regimen to bring the symptoms under control.
