The America’s Best Care Plus program treats more than just environmental allergies. Our sublingual food allergy drops are designed to help patients tolerate more of the foods they enjoy.
Are there side effects or risks?
Because the allergy drops contain the same particles found in nature, there are minimal side effects. And since sublingual allergy drops have a more favorable safety profile than shots,1 they can be taken safely at home.
How long until patients see results?
The majority of patients achieve relief from food allergy symptoms in three to six months of starting the America’s Best Care Plus food allergy treatment program and can then continue on maintenance food allergy drops. Some patients start to feel better in just the first few weeks of treatment. Each patient is unique, and results may vary.
How did this treatment come about?
Sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT) has been used successfully worldwide since the mid-1980s to treat environmental allergies. Recent studies, including high-profile clinical trials at Duke University involving nut allergy treatment, have proven sublingual immunotherapy to be a safe and highly effective treatment for food allergies as well.2
What health conditions have been improved with sublingual food drops?
In addition to helping with standard food allergy treatment, America’s Best Care Plus food drops have demonstrated efficacy with interstitial cystitis (IC) and eosinophilic esophagitis* treatment (EoE). The allergy drops can be prescribed for kids and adults.
Common Food Allergies
*Eosinophilic esophagitis treatment targets an allergic condition that was only recently differentiated from standard reflux. EoE is characterized by inflammation of the esophagus and can cause abdominal pain, difficulty in swallowing, and food impaction.
