UMMC allergists and immunologists are board-certified in the diagnosis and treatment of allergies, asthma, and other diseases of the immune system. Whether a patient needs fast relief for occasional allergy symptoms or a comprehensive, long-term treatment plan, our team of experts provides personalized care for each patient's particular needs.

Allergies

More than half of people in the United States suffer from allergies. Allergies are what happens when our immune system fights foreign bodies like pollen, foods, drugs, even materials like nickel or latex. Allergic reactions can range from minor to life-threatening. They may be annoying, like a stuffy nose caused by seasonal allergies, or potentially harmful, like anaphylaxis caused by a food allergy

Asthma

The same substances that cause allergies can also trigger asthma symptoms. Asthma is a chronic (life-long) disease that can cause wheezing, coughing, and shortness of breath. Like with allergies, asthma symptoms are the body's response to a foreign substance, but with asthma, the reaction affects a person's lungs and airways. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 25 million people in the U.S. have been diagnosed with asthma, and the numbers are increasing every year.
