EAST POINT, Ga., Oct. 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Hay fever, or allergic rhinitis, has been estimated to affect up to 42% of the population and 40% of all children. The most common reason for chronic sinusitis, missed work, and school days, the likelihood of being affected by hay fever, and the more severe conditions which it often precedes, is often hinted upon during early childhood and adolescence. The "Allergic March," which commonly begins with something as simple as eczema, is a term used to describe how allergic diseases progress throughout one's life and refers to a group of allergic disorders that commonly develop in early childhood. As children age, it may proceed to the development of food allergies, rhinitis, and asthma and while a staggering 34.1 million Americans have been diagnosed with asthma by a healthcare professional during their lifetime, about 70% of asthmatics also suffer from allergies.

With this is mind, Polaris Allergy Labs, Inc. was developed. Polaris Allergy Labs is a physician and healthcare professionals owned full service laboratory serving physicians who are committed to improving the quality of life for those who suffer from chronic allergies by providing thorough diagnostic and detailed treatment plans for patients. Polaris Allergy Labs, Inc. provides Pediatricians, ENT's, Family Practice Physicians and Internal Medicine Physicians assistance to implement state of the art testing to transform your practice into an allergy testing ground. We assist in helping physicians provide patient satisfaction, as well as in marketing to the area and far beyond by our trained marketers, enabling extreme visibility for our clients.

Our comprehensive diagnostic approach combines the use of both the Allergy Scratch Test as well as the IgE Blood Assay to test for a wide assortment of allergens, one advantage of which is to allow the patient to observe the allergic reaction alerting them to avoid any indicated allergens. IgE Blood Assay is the most sensitive and accurate for sensitivity to pollens, molds, pet dander, dust, feathers, cockroaches, and foods. Safe and convenient testing makes it possible for our trained staff to quickly test and provide reliable results. We are a complex lab assisting the primary care provider with the implementation of immunotherapy according to demographics, region and age as our lab maintains clinicians who conduct audit and protocols necessary to keep all reference ranges within requirements while also ensuring adherence to FDA standards. Physicians find comfort in knowing that while an additional revenue stream has been created within the office, outside their patients are benefitting from allergy relief and symptom control.
