Life After OIT
What is OIT?
Oral Immunotherapy (OIT) for food allergies is a medical treatment, guided by a board-certified allergist, which re-trains the immune system to become desensitized to food allergens through regular ingestion of food proteins at increasing doses.
The Oral Immunotherapy (OIT) Journey
1. QUALIFYING VISIT
Time Commitment: Approximately 2 hours
Consultation with one of our board-certified allergists to discuss your entire OIT journey.
2. DAY 1 TREATMENT
Time Commitment: Full Day Visit (six to eight hours)
Under the supervision of our board-certified allergist and designated care team, the patient will experience their first day of treatment, consisting of ingesting the protein dilution every 30 minutes until 8 doses have been taken. Daily home-dosing will begin at the end of this appointment.
3. WEEKLY UP-DOSING
Time Commitment: 1 hour per week for 23-29 weeks
Each week, the patient will be monitored in our office for an increased dose of protein dilution. The new higher dose of specified protein will be taken home each week for home-dosing.
Patients will be given the quantity of their specified food to add to their diet indefinitely at home to maintain their desensitized state.
