Diagnosing allergy

The first step in being able to optimally treat any allergy is getting a definitive diagnosis.
ALK manufactures allergen extracts for use in the diagnosis of specific allergies, for instance: in skin prick tests.

In conjunction with the patient’s medical history, a skin prick test can show whether a person has an allergy and, if so, which particular allergen is responsible for their symptoms.

The first step to optimally treating any allergy is a formal diagnosis.

This can be established by reviewing any relevant disease history and symptoms, and can be confirmed by allergy testing.
