It's a frequent misunderstanding that allergies only appear in young children. Although the onset of allergy symptoms is less common later in life, many nevertheless deal with them owing to the persistence of an allergy as we get older. Veritas Healthcare provides Food and Environmental Allergy Testing to the Los Angeles area businesses, schools, and retirement communities.

Protect Your Immune System

An allergy blood test analyzes your blood's molecule called immunoglobulin E (IgE). IgE is an antibody that your body manufactures. If you have allergies, you may have more IgE in your blood than normal. Allergies are a common, long-term disorder that involves your immune system. Your immune system produces antibodies to combat pathogens like bacteria and viruses. In the case of allergies, the body's defense mechanisms mistakenly identify typically safe things like pollen or peanuts as harmful invaders. So to resist the "danger," your immune system creates IgE antibodies. This is what causes your allergy symptoms.

On the other hand, allergens are generally harmless chemicals that might trigger allergic reactions. To name a few examples of allergens: pollens, dust, and molds, as well as animal dander. And then there are other foods, like almonds and seafood. As is the case of some drugs like penicillin. Allergy symptoms vary by ones sensitivity. They can range from itchy and sneezing to asthma or a life-threatening situation like anaphylactic shock. This is why we offer patients in Los Angeles Food and Environmental Allergy Testing services.

Identify the Triggers

Our sinuses might get clogged with mucus and other debris if we don't address our allergies. Allergies, if left untreated, can cause inflammation and infection. In addition, common colds and sinus infections can become chronic, leading to more severe concerns like asthma or structural sinus problems requiring surgical intervention. Chronic allergy problems can severely impact a person's amount and quality of sleep. Sleep problems, such as insomnia, can develop from difficulties falling asleep or staying asleep that continue over time. The second element is that it might impair the quality of your sleep. When you don't get enough quality sleep over a period of time, your body and mind start to show it in your daily performance.

No amount of coffee or energy drinks can replace quality shut-eye for restoring mental and physical acuity. The stresses of work, school, and everyday life can take a toll on anyone's mental health, so adding exhaustion to the mix can have disastrous consequences. Including allergies, issues like persistent tiredness, poor sleep quality, and lack of attention can worsen if left untreated. Memory issues and a lack of productivity can put you in a tough place and generate worry and anxiety. As a result, we believe that alleviating allergy symptoms is one of the best methods to improve one's quality of life. Conversely, neglecting to treat your allergies at their source can lead to various unpleasant and sometimes debilitating complications.
