Dr. Lieberman and Dr. Parekh of Austin Family Allergy & Asthma are very pleased to announce that we are now offering oral immunotherapy (OIT) to our peanut allergic patients.
OIT is a new and exciting treatment option for those battling food allergies. Current management of food allergies involves careful, strict avoidance of the allergic food, and the emergency use of epinephrine in the event of an accidental ingestion. OIT offers the opportunity to be able to ingest the food safely on a daily basis. The OIT process takes about 5-6 months from start to finish and involves weekly office visits as the dose is gradually increased.
Please give us a call to see if you or your child are eligible for this new treatment option.
