General Surgery Ltd in cooperation with Vithas Xanit Hospital Benalmadena Spain Area of Expertise



Allergology Enquire
Allergy Testing Enquire £60.00
Allergy testing can help confirm or rule out allergies and consequently reduce adverse reactions and limit unnecessary avoidance and medications. Correct allergy diagnosis, counseling and avoidance advice based on valid allergy test results is of utmost importance and can help reduce the incidence of symptoms, need for medications and improve quality of life. A healthcare provider can use the test results to identify the specific allergic triggers that may be contributing to the symptoms. Using this information, along with a physical examination and case history, the doctor can diagnose the cause of the symptoms and tailor treatments that will help the patient feel better. A negative result can help the doctor rule out allergies in order to consider other possibilities. Ruling out allergies is as important as confirming them to limit unnecessary avoidance, worry and negative social impact.
NIH guidelines for the diagnosis and management of food allergy and the diagnosis and management of asthma recommend either allergy blood testing or skin prick testing to reliably determine allergic sensitization.
For an allergy blood test, a sample of the patient

Our Vascular and Endovascular Surgery Department is characterised by providing quality care with a personalised touch. Our doctors aim to offer an overall focus and a portfolio of services covering everything from basic vascular check-ups to complex operations on the thoracic aorta or thoracoabdominal surgery.
Many cardiovascular diseases have few or no symptoms in their early phases. Our department can run barely invasive, early diagnosis tests to detect different diseases and treat them in their initial phases, before the problem gets any worse.
