Diagnosis of allergy
In the event of any sign of allergy, it is essential to consult an allergologist who, after exhaustive analysis, will identify the cause of the disorder and prescribe adequate treatment.
This analysis begins with a questionnaire (anamnesis) to confirm the existence of allergy and detect the allergens that may be responsible for the observed symptoms. Following anamnesis and a physical examination, a diagnosis of the disease, based on a series of skin tests, will determine the underlying cause. In some cases, the specialist may consider that challenge tests are needed.
Laboratorios LETI offers various products for in vivo diagnosis of allergic diseases based on both skin and challenge tests.
