Improving your Health
The most common and undiagnosed diseases are allergies. Over 50 million people in America suffer from allergies, and approximately 55 percent of all U.S. citizens test positive to one or more allergens. Allergy testing is offered in Dalhart at the Allergy Clinic inside Coon Memorial Hospital.
The Allergy Clinic staff are trained to identify the specific allergens that trigger a patient’s symptoms and develop a treatment plan that is tailored to their individual needs.
Allergy testing: Allergy testing involves exposing a patient to small amounts of common allergens and observing their reaction. This can help identify the specific allergens that are causing a patient’s symptoms. The Allergy Clinic at CMH tests for 38 common food allergens and 38 native environmental factors.
Immunotherapy: Immunotherapy, also known as allergy shots or drops, involves injecting a patient with small amounts of allergens over time to help desensitize their immune system and reduce their sensitivity to those allergens.
Education: We provide educational materials to help patients understand their condition and learn strategies for managing their symptoms.
