Oral Immunotherapy Gives Hope to Those with Food Allergies
Oral Immunotherapy, known as OIT, gives people, mostly kids, the ability to become turn foods that were once life-threatening into some of their favorites. Imagine a child who was never allowed to freely go trick-or-treating be able to dive in to their stash on Halloween night with no issues? Or a child who always had to bring their own food to the birthday party finally be able to join in with the others without being isolated? Stacy Silvers, MD, shares what OIT can do by slowly introducing tiny amounts of the food into the body over the course of 6-8 months.
