Our immune system can be both our greatest friend and our worst enemy. It protects us from bacteria and other antigens, producing antibodies to fight off infection. At the same time, it can overreact, producing antibodies in reaction to harmless substances: allergies that can range from the merely annoying to the downright dangerous.
In addition to helping patients with immuno-deficiencies, NuHealth’s immunology department provides testing and patient care to help combat all types of allergies, including:
- Allergic Rhinitis (hay fever)
- Contact Dermatitis
- Drug Allergies
- Food Allergies
- Immune Disorders
- Insect Allergies
- Mast Cell Disorders
- Skin Allergies
