What Does An Allergist Test For?
At Texas Regional Asthma and Allergy Center, our physicians help each patient in our Fort Worth and Southlake, Texas, offices, understand their body and how it works to better equip themselves for optimal health. Although the human body can defend itself against harmful viruses and bacteria, sometimes the defenses become too aggressive and mild substances such as dust and pet hair are recognized as threatening. Allergies can occur at any age and there are thousands of substances that may trigger them. Symptoms can be extremely unpleasant when they aren't treated in a timely manner.
