We are a leading clinic specialising in the diagnosis and treatment of child allergies. We are are conveniently located at 4 London locations; 3 in London (The Portland Hospital, Westminster Bridge and The Shard) and one in Surrey (New Malden Diagnostic Clinic). Our principle allergy doctor Dr George du Toit and friendly nursing staff have extensive experience.
Allergies and Intolerances Treated
There are only two scientifically validated allergy tests for the investigation of IgE-mediated food allergy; the Skin Prick Test (SPT) and Specific-IgE antibody testing (previously called RAST testing, now called Immuno-Cap Testing). Prof Du Toit makes use of both these validated tests as well as the recent ISAC testing and IgE component testing. if these tests result in an equivocal outcome, we will undertake oral challenge tests (which is the gold standard diagnostic test).
Immunotherapy is the practice of administering gradually increasing doses of an allergen extract (e.g. pollen) in order to reduce the symptoms of hayfever or asthma that it causes. It was first carried out almost 100 years ago and is now in widespread use around the world.
