Why is allergy testing important?

60% of asthma is caused by allergies2. If you suffer from asthma, allergy testing can help identify allergies that may be causing it. Once identified, treating these allergies can help prevent asthma attacks.

Allergy testing will help you and your provider determine a treatment and prevention plan to improve your quality of life.
