Re: Sublingual immunotherapy- constant blocked sinuses
Hi, I havent started it yet i'm due to start SLIT in the next couple of weeks. I got my blood ige allergy results yesterday and it turns out i am extremely allergic to two types of dust mites, negative for everything else (kind of already knew). The machine rates antibody levels out of 300 and mine measured <300. Thing with me was my cat scan was completely clear, yet allergy medications and sprays nasal wash dont help me whatsoever and ive been on them for months.Ive a constant blocked nose and always feel sick and tired, even when i am not around dust which i cant understand and changed bedclothes to dust proof type along the purchase of a hepa filter. For me it feels like dust allergy has triggered some sort of chronic illness with me, i cant really explain it, i always feel from it.
My doctor told me that it takes around 6-9 months to feel a difference with slit, but ive also heard you can feel benefits after about 4 months. I think tht it depend on the person and their level of allergy.
Best of luck.
