Allergies, respiratory infections, and asthma often present with similar symptoms, making them difficult to differentiate. Being able to rule in or rule out allergies as the cause of your patients’ symptoms can help inform better treatment decisions. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) also recommends allergy testing for patients with asthma to help close gaps in care.1
Identifying upper respiratory disorder allergy triggers
Upper respiratory disorders (URDs), including rhinitis, sinusitis, and allergic rhinitis, affect tens of millions of Americans.2 Because the cause of URD symptoms may be viral, bacterial, or allergic, a definitive diagnosis is essential to determine appropriate treatment.
Better manage asthma by KNOWING the triggers
Asthma and allergy go hand in hand, as multiple allergic triggers can add up to asthma symptoms. ImmunoCAP can help you identify these triggers, reduce care gaps, and help you and your patients better control their asthma.
Quest Diagnostics is dedicated to providing you with the insights you need to help your patients better manage allergy triggers. Simplify allergy testing and patient management with ImmunoCAP™, an easy, reliable IgE blood test. It quantitatively measures specific IgE antibody levels and identifies allergic sensitivities.
