Children with neurodevelopmental disorders have multiple defects in immune function, and the severity of immune dysfunction is proportional to the severity of the disorder.

Low Dose Immunotherapy with Darin Ingels, NDAllergies are often underdiagnosed and undertreated due to lack of verbal skills of the child or the lack of understanding by parents of what symptoms may be caused by allergy.

In this webinar, we discussed the difference between low dose immunotherapy (LDI) and sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT).

In essence, LDI is for alleviating immune response to microbes such as viruses and bacteria, while SLIT is helpful for food-based and environmental allergies.

Over 300 published studies show that sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT) is equally or more effective than allergy shots in reducing allergy and asthma symptoms.

SLIT may be used in children who are not eligible to receive conventional allergy injections or who may have sensory issues that would prohibit using injections.

SLIT is more convenient than injection immunotherapy because the drops are administered at home by the parent, meaning fewer office visits and no needles.

SLIT will often diminish symptoms within weeks.
