Allergy & Immunology

From spring pollen to summer ragweed, allergies can affect your mood, energy, and overall quality of life. The familiar symptoms of recurrent cough and runny nose are caused by inflammation when your body reacts to a harmless irritant (such as pollen or dust) as if it were a dangerous microbe. The inflammation is your body’s attempt to isolate and destroy the irritant.

For most people, allergies are just a minor health issue. But in addition to affecting your energy and mood, allergies can increase your risk of chronic sinusitis, asthma, and other health conditions.

Altru’s Allergy & Immunology specializes in preventing, diagnosing and treating a wide range of immune-related conditions in both children and adults. We’ll work with you to identify the cause, control your symptoms, and reduce inflammatory triggers to improve your quality of life.
