*Asthma Diagnosis and Treatment-Asthma is best treated proactively. Regular Peak flow monitoring and pulmonary function testing along with a good Asthma plan are essential for good control of Asthma. If you are using your albuterol inhaler more than twice a week during the day, more than twice a month at night, or have had two major attacks of asthma this year, you should make an appointment for pulmonary function testing and an evaluation as soon as possible.

*Allergy Diagnosis and Treatment-Mild Allergies can be treated safetly with over the counter Claritin (loratadine) and Zyrtec. However, if your symptoms are persistent, than allergy testing for environmental and/or food triggers is helpful to guide what to avoid. Additionally a prescription for nasal steroids is often helpful in controlling symptoms. Ashburn allergist

*Food Allergy Diagnosis and Treatment-Food allergies affect about 7% of all children. Cow's milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, sesame seeds and kiwi are the most common food allergies in kids. Wheat and soy allergies are rare by comparison. In adults, shell fish, peanuts, fish and tree nuts are the most common allergies. Most children will outgrow their egg allergies by age 6, nut allergies on the other hand usually persist. Food allergies can cause skin problems (rashes and red welts), upset stomach (pain, diarrhea or vomiting) or breathing problems (respiratory allergies or trouble breathing). Children with severe cases of eczema often have underlying food allergies. Blood or skin prick testing for food allergies is the best way to diagnose food allergies. However, neither form of allergy testing is always reliable so careful food elimination trials are necessary to clarify which foods are causing which allergy symptoms. Specialized allergy testing, and complimentary approaches from the fields of acupuncture and homeopathy are also employed if standard treatments fail to relieve your symptoms. peanut allergy, gluten allergy
