TREATING DUST MITE ALLERGIES

Imagine a world where allergies no longer dictate your daily life, a world where sneezing, itching, nose congestion, runny noses and watery eyes are things of the past. At Hisential Clinic, we are turning this vision into reality.

THE MENACE OF HOUSE DUST MITE ALLERGIES

House dust mite allergies are triggered by tiny creatures that are commonly found in our living spaces. These microscopic mites thrive in warm, humid environments, making our bedding, upholstered furniture, carpets and fabrics their ideal habitats. The allergic reactions are a result of the immune system’s exaggerated response to proteins present in the mites’ droppings.

TRADITIONAL APPROACHES TO HOUSE DUST MITE RESPIRATORY ALLERGIES:

ALLERGEN AVOIDANCE

It can be difficult to avoid house dust mites altogether but measures such as using dust mite repellent bedding covers and frequent cleaning with specialised vacuuming machines on fabrics may help to reduce exposure.

MEDICATION

Antihistamines and corticosteroids can alleviate allergy symptoms like a runny or blocked nose. However, since these medications don’t alter the body’s immune response to the allergen, symptoms might resurface once the medication is discontinued. In patients with persistent respiratory allergy, their symptoms frequently remain inadequately controlled with these symptom-reliving medications.

IMMUNOTHERAPY

Enter Standardized allergen extract HDM, a groundbreaking immunotherapy treatment tailored for house dust mite allergies. It increases the body’s tolerance to dust mite allergens through a process called desensitization. This involves administering controlled amounts of house dust mite allergen extract regularly over several weeks to help build up a tolerance. Immunotherapy is a treatment that targets the underlying cause of house dust mite allergy addressing the root cause of the allergy rather than just alleviating symptoms.

IMMUNOTHERAPY: A GAME CHANGER IN ALLERGY TREATMENT

This Immunotherapy is a sublingual tablet infused with extracts from two house dust mite species: Dermatophagoides farinae and Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus. The treatment functions by progressively desensitizing the immune system to these mites, diminishing the allergic response upon exposure. For optimal results, consistency is key, with symptom improvement typically observed after 14 weeks of regular medication.

DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION

The recommended adult dose is one tablet, taken once daily by letting it dissolve under the tongue. The tablet should be taken out of the foil packaging with dry hands and placed under the tongue to dissolve. Swallowing should be avoided for 1 minute after placing the tablet under the tongue, and eating and drinking should be avoided for 5 minutes after taking the medication.

EFFECTIVENESS

This Standardized allergen extract HDM Immunotherapy has been shown to be effective in reducing the symptoms of house dust mite allergies in several clinical trials. A study published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology found that patients treated experienced a significant reduction in allergy symptoms and an improvement in quality of life compared to those who received a placebo. Another study published in the journal Allergy also found that it was effective in reducing the symptoms of house dust mite allergies. The study concluded that the therapy was safe and effective treatment for house dust mite-induced allergic rhinitis.

THE BOTTOM LINE

At Hisential Clinic, our patient-centric approach ensures tailored care for every individual. If house dust mite allergies have been hampering your quality of life, we urge you to consult our healthcare professionals to ascertain if the Standardized allergen extract HDM is your path to relief.
