What is Sublingual Immunotherapy (SLIT)?
SLIT is an effective form of allergy desensitization therapy where the physician assesses your allergic sensitivity to either airborne or food allergies through skin testing or blood testing. Then, he or she creates personalized low dose allergen desensitization drops that the patient takes under their tongue.
“Sublingual immunotherapy can be used for both food and airborne allergies.”
How does SLIT work to treat allergies?
SLIT works by the same principles as allergy shots except they are delivered to your immune system by a different route…under your tongue. Low dose allergens, when delivered over time, create a desensitization effect on the specific antibodies active to your allergies resulting in relief of allergic symptoms.
How well established is SLIT for treatment of allergies?
SLIT is the standard of care for allergy treatment in Europe and is gaining popularity in the U.S.
