How is allergy diagnosed?

Early diagnosis is important

If you suspect that you suffer from allergic disease you should seek medical attention.

Diagnosing allergic rhinitis

The severity of allergic rhinitis can vary greatly from patient to patient, and its diagnosis involves classifying your disease according to its severity. The ARIA (Allergic Rhinitis and its Impact on Asthma) guidelines look at two parameters: severity and duration, while the GINA (Global Initiative for Asthma) guidelines look at the amount of symptom-relieving medication needed to control your symptoms.

Allergic symptoms vary in severity according to the level of exposure to the allergen.
