For example, asthma and allergies can have a huge impact on your quality of life if you don’t take appropriate measures. You can improve your health-related quality of life by considering the following steps:
Schedule an Allergy or Asthma (Lung Volume) Test
If you’re struggling with allergies, the Langford Allergy providers can conduct a painless, no-shot allergy test to determine exactly what allergies are ailing you. During this test, a provider will press a small amount of an allergen onto your skin to see if the skin becomes red, itchy, or raised. By using this method, between 20-90 indoor and outdoor allergens and foods can be tested. The entire test takes about 30 minutes and you will receive and discuss your results immediately.
If you think you have asthma, a lung volume test is necessary to determine if you have asthma or if certain medications are working appropriately. The Langford Allergy providers will measure how much air you breathe in and how fast you can blow it out. This two-phase test takes roughly 30 minutes. After the test, your provider will talk you through your results and, if necessary, consult with you about appropriate treatment options.
Follow Your Doctor’s Advice & Take Back Control of Your Life
The worst aspect of allergies and asthma is feeling like they are in control of your life. If you listen to your doctor and heed his advice, your allergy and asthma issues should become controllable and manageable – allowing you to live the life you want.
