Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD), also known as acid reflux or simply reflux, is a disorder of the digestive system where acidic stomach juices, fluids or food back up from the stomach into the esophagus. GERD can affect patients of all ages.
Worldwide, allergies are one of the most common chronic health conditions. Symptoms range from simply making you feel miserable to dangerous life-threatening reactions.
A serious, life-threatening allergic reaction called Anaphylaxis (an-a-fi-LAK-sis) is possible when the body overreacts to an allergen. The most common anaphylactic reactions are to medications, food, insect stings, and latex.
Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disease that affects the airways, or bronchial tubes, in the lungs. These airways allow air to come in and out of the lungs. It’s a serious disease that must be diagnosed and treated quickly and thoroughly.
A cough is considered chronic if it occurs for eight weeks or more in a patient. The allergists at Allergy & Asthma Consultants have expertise in allergic rhinitis (also called hay fever) and sinus infections, which can contribute to postnasal drainage (a common cause of chronic cough).
An allergic reaction to medication occurs when the body’s immune system overreacts to a normally harmless substance which triggers an allergic reaction. Sensitivities to drugs may produce similar symptoms but do not involve the immune system.
Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EoE) is a chronic allergic/immune condition recently recognized that involves inflammation or swelling of the esophagus, caused by large numbers of white blood cells in the tissue of the esophagus.
When your immune system overreacts to a particular protein found in a food, you have a food allergy. Sometimes symptoms can occur when coming in contact with just a tiny amount of the food.
When your immune system mistakenly identifies a normally harmless substance (called an allergen) as an intruder, you have allergic rhinitis. The immune system’s response to an allergen is to release histamine and chemical mediators that can cause symptoms in the nose, eyes, ears, throat, roof of the mouth and on the skin.
When part of the body’s immune system is either absent or not functioning properly, it can result in an immune deficiency disease. When the cause is hereditary or genetic, it’s called a primary immunodeficiency disease (PIDD).
The average person who has ever been bitten by an insect usually develops redness and swelling from the bite/sting. People who are allergic to the venom of stinging insects, however, are at risk for a very serious reaction called anaphylaxis.
An allergic skin condition happens when an allergen is responsible for triggering an immune system reaction. Irritated skin can be caused by a variety of factors, including immune system disorders, infections and medications.
