SLIT is a proven desensitization method that provides lasting relief from allergy symptoms. For those suffering from food-related allergic reactions, our allergy treatment centers in McKinney/Prosper and Southlake are equipped to help allergy sufferers get the best food allergy treatment possible.

Sublingual Immunotherapy for Food Allergies

For patients committed to the process, SLIT represents a transformative approach in food allergy treatment. The straightforward therapy involves administering small doses of the allergenic food under the tongue, gradually increasing the body’s tolerance to the allergen over several months.

As a pediatric and adult food allergy specialist with over a decade of experience, Dr. Mireku takes pride in offering the latest techniques in allergy care. Using food allergy drops is a pioneering treatment, one that is particularly beneficial for patients with busy schedules. By consistently using food allergy drops, patients can experience a significant reduction in allergic reactions, resulting in an effective long-term management of food allergies.

The Food Allergy Drops Process

Food allergy drops are primarily administered at home, making the process simple and convenient. The following stages provide an overview of a typical SLIT treatment.
  • Consultation and Assessment – Comprehensive food allergy evaluation and assessment for suitability of SLIT treatment.
  • Food Allergy Treatment Plan – Creation of a tailored SLIT treatment plan based on a patient’s specific allergies.
  • First Dose of Food Allergy Drops – First dose of food allergy drops takes place under medical supervision and monitoring.
  • At-Home Administration of Food Allergy Drops – Instructions on administering drops at home following a schedule.
  • Evaluation and Food Allergy Management – Regular follow-up appointments to monitor progress and adjust food allergy drops dosage if necessary.
Dr. Mireku helps individuals navigate the process of achieving and maintaining food allergy desensitization. By following the treatment plan, patients can significantly reduce sensitivity and improve tolerance to specific food allergens.
