LDA: Low Dose Allergen Immunotherapy





What Is LDA?

Low dose allergen immunotherapy, or LDA, is a unique method of immunotherapy. It is different from other allergy treatments currently available. It’s used to treat many conditions and is a long-lasting treatment option for allergies and many autoimmune illnesses. LDA is a safe and effective immunotherapy that can treat a wide variety of allergies. LDA is a great alternative to allergy shots.
 
Treating allergies with this therapy is done by introducing very low doses of allergens mixed with the enzyme beta glucuronidase. It’s administered over an extended period of time. The treatment calms the response of the immune system when introduced to an allergen. LDA leads the immune system to turn off the allergic response or allergic reaction to the targeted allergens. This is called immune tolerance. Treatment leads to a much higher tolerance to specific allergens. This form of slow treatment and change to the immune system’s reaction makes LDA a good treatment for autoimmune conditions

We have been everywhere to try and find treatment for Matthew. For our son to feel this good is amazing. The LDA has helped us inhalant-wise and with everything else. We are so appreciative and grateful.

The effectiveness of this procedure and the amount of allergies it treats makes Low Dose Allergen Immunotherapy one of the best ways to treat your allergies without spending a lot.

Allergies LDA Treats

LDA immunotherapy is very low dose and administered infrequently. Treatment is needed only every two months for approximately 12 months. After that, the treatment interval may generally extend to three months or longer. Children (under 12) may often increase time between treatments earlier. They also tend to stop sooner without return of symptoms. Children as young as 1 month of age have been treated safely.
 
The response to LDA does not take long to appear. Over 60% of patients note a significant positive response after their first treatment. (And almost all patients respond positively by the third). The response rate for all conditions treated with LDA is approximately 65% to 95%. This depends on the condition that is being treated. The overall failure rate (no improvement) is about 10%.
 
It is administered either by injection or as drops under the tongue (sublingual).
