Allergology

"Endemic disease" allergy

In all industrialised countries, the number of allergy sufferers has doubled or tripled in the past three decades – and they are continuing to increase. It is estimated that today one in three Germans will have problems with a pathological hyperactive immune response at least once in their lifetime. It is therefore not an exaggeration to call it an endemic. Children and adolescents are affected in particular by it as they suffer from food allergies twice as much as adults do, for example.

Allergy triggers

Almost all substances in the environment are possible allergies. To diagnose allergies we will undertake a detailed medical history and carry out various allergy tests (e.g.: skin tests, provocation tests, laboratory tests). Analysing allergy triggers is required for an effective individual treatment plan.
