Now is the Time to Get an Accurate Diagnosis if You Have an Immune Deficiency

Now is the Time to Get an Accurate Diagnosis if You Have an Immune Deficiency

Having an immune deficiency can affect every part of your life and your overall health. At this time of uncertainty, it becomes clearer to people how important it is to be aware of these issues and to be sure they are under control. If you suspect you have an immune deficiency, we invite you to contact Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology Medical Group at 805-658-9500 to find out how we can help.

Do Not Let an Inexperienced Doctor Diagnosis Your Immune Deficiency

The truth is that doctors cannot be experts in every area of medicine. Your general practitioner may know a lot about a variety of illnesses but have only a basic understanding of everything that is involved in an immune deficiency. On the other hand, when you work with doctors who specialize in allergy, asthma, and immunology, you are working with doctors who have the necessary experience to get you the results you need.

We Will Work to Get You an Accurate Diagnosis of Immune Deficiency

It cannot be ignored: Immunodeficiency diseases are extremely serious. You do not want to put your safety at risk by working with a doctor who is not qualified to give you the help you need. If they mistake your condition for an ordinary allergy when it is something more complex, you will likely live with the symptoms much longer than you have to. Work with the pros at Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology Medical Group and we can get you the expert diagnosis you need.

There Are Many Immune Deficiency Diseases

One of the reasons general practitioners often have trouble getting an accurate diagnosis is because there are so many Primary Immunodeficiency Disease (PIDD). In fact, there are more than 150 of them. Common signs that this is what is happening include swollen lymph glands, frequent infections, recurring ear infections, inability to retain wait, and a family history of immune deficiency.

It is often the case that PIDD symptoms are a lot like more common allergies such as eczema or asthma. This is not surprising because allergies are also caused by poor immune system responses. That said, allergies and PIDD require very different treatments, which is why an accurate diagnosis is so important.

Treatment Options for PIDD

You need a doctor who has specific expertise with PIDD to treat you most effectively. You are in good hands with the physicians at Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology Medical Group because they have the skills, experience, and resources to deal with your specific issue. We work with many potential treatments including avoiding infection, replacement therapy, and treatment of comorbid diseases.

You can trust us for a customized treatment plan that is made specifically for your needs. Call us now at 805-658-9500 to set up an appointment and get started right away.
