Allergy Clinic of Tulsa, Inc. is pleased to offer oral immunotherapy for the treatment of some food allergies. The goal of oral immunotherapy is to provide a long-term solution for egg, milk, peanut and wheat allergy.  At the end of the 5 to 6 month program patients with egg, milk, peanut or wheat allergy will be able to consume these foods with no allergic reactions.  The program introduces pre measured doses of egg, milk, peanut or wheat in a solution over a period of 3 to 4 months.  Progressing to small doses of the food for an additional 2 to 3 months, resulting in tolerance to these foods allowing the patient to consume egg milk, peanut or wheat without any adverse reactions.

This program is designed for a child of school age or older who will be old enough to understand the reasons for participating and be actively involved in the process.

The first visit for oral immunotherapy is a full day process during which the patient will be administered multiple doses of very small amounts of diluted milk, diluted egg powder, diluted peanut powder, or diluted wheat powder.  The patient would return weekly for a dose increase followed by one hour of observation.  Between each visit the patient will take two doses of the desensitizing food each day at home. Oral immunotherapy is complete when the previously allergy causing food can be freely included in the diet.  To maintain tolerance the food must be eaten daily.
