What is Sublingual Immunotherapy?

Sublingual Immunotherapy (SLIT), offered by The Allergy Group, presents an innovative approach to managing food allergies. Also known as “allergy drops,” SLIT involves administering a liquid form of the allergenic food under the tongue. Unlike traditional oral immunotherapy (OIT), SLIT offers an alternative method of desensitization. While SLIT has been successfully utilized for airborne allergies like hay fever and asthma for years, it has recently piqued interest in the United States.

How are SLIT Allergy Drops Administered?

Administering SLIT allergy drops is a convenient and self-managed process that can be done in the comfort of your own home. Typically taken daily over the course of several years, these drops work to enhance your immune response to allergens.

To use them, simply place the prescribed amount of liquid under your tongue and hold it there for approximately one minute before swallowing. The pleasant, sweet taste of the liquid makes the experience tolerable for anyone, even picky eaters! It’s recommended to wait about five minutes after applying the drops before eating or drinking. Additionally, unlike other medications, these drops do not require refrigeration, adding to their ease of use.

How Do Sublingual Allergy Drops Work For Food Allergies?

When it comes to food allergies, sublingual allergy drops offered by The Allergy Group work in a fascinating way. By placing food proteins under the tongue, the drops contact the oral mucus membranes. These membranes then interact with specialized immune cells called dendritic cells, triggering a unique communication pathway with other immune cells known as T lymphocytes. This remarkable interaction aims to hyposensitize or reduce your allergies, allowing your body to build a tolerance to the specific allergens gradually.
