An allergy is the body’s immune system response to what it thinks is a foreign invader. This could be peanuts, pet dander, grass clippings or bee stings. What might be safe for one individual could be deadly for another.
Allergies are grouped by the kinds of triggers that bring symptoms on, the time of year and where symptoms appear on the body. Types of allergies include: indoor and outdoor (also called “hay fever,” “seasonal,” “perennial” or “nasal”), food, latex, insect, skin and eye. Many people suffer from allergies and can and do live healthy and active lives.
ARCpoint Labs of Overland Park offers sophisticated allergy testing that can determine what is causing discomfort and your reaction. Food intolerances and sensitivities often are not readily noticeable but can have profound impact on your health.

Allergy is a growing problem in the United States. In addition to seasonal allergies, individuals suffer from food allergies (and possibly intolerances and sensitivities) and environmental allergies at rapidly growing rates.
Some allergy reactions are minor and include irritations such as sneezing, watery eyes and itchy noses. Others experience more severe reactions that require immediate medical attention.
Although there is not a common “cure” for allergies, many symptoms can be managed and avoided. Determining what’s causing the allergic reaction is the first step in managing allergies.
We always recommend that you speak with your physician when receiving treatment for allergies based upon your positive allergy test results. We provide multiple allergy panels/ profiles and tests at our nationwide labs, presented to enable you to meet your exacting needs.
