I'm curious about how many of us may have had immunotherapy treatments to induce tolerance for one or more allergy problems. I'm wondering if such treatment programs might have the side effect of altering genes that might predispose patients to the development of autoimmune problems.

Thank you for any insight you might be able to offer.

I received allergy shots as a kid. Every two weeks for about 2 years from age 7-9. Went to my dads every other weekend where the dreaded cat lived. The shots never worked and the cat remained..... animated cat

I had allergy shots for 3 years in my early 20's. I then moved to another city for a job and continued with another allergist. Upon receiving my first injection at the new allergist, I had a very bad reaction that was very scary. Apparently, I was given way too high a dose. I was then informed I would have to backtrack my dose and basically start over as my system was so heightened due to their mistake. It was a very disheartening experience so I stopped altogether.

Will be interested to see the results of the poll.

I haven't myself, but my grandson, who just turned 7, had immunotherapy for his peanut allergy. He was extremely allergic to peanuts, and they did oral immunotherapy treatment, which started with him taking a tiny bit of peanut protein in liquid, and over the course of many months worked up to him eating 12 peanuts a day. The challenge was him eating 24 peanuts, and then he dropped to a maintenance dose of around 8 peanuts a day. They actually have to weigh the peanuts, but it is about 8.

This was all done under the supervision of a doctor. Each time the dose was raised, it had to be done at the doctor's office. It was hard to convince him to eat the peanuts, because he was scared. It would take him more than half an hour to eat a few peanuts.

But it seems to have worked. This was the first Halloween that his parents haven't thrown away all candy that contains peanuts. He still doesn't go around chowing down peanuts, but at least we know that eating some by accident in a cookie isn't going to be so dangerous to him.

He will have to eat the maintenance dose of peanuts every day, or he will lose the tolerance to peanuts, the doctors said.

I find it all kind of scary, and still keep the peanut butter at my house in a high cabinet. I would have banned it altogether, but DH loves peanuts and peanut butter.

I took allergy shots (1 in each arm) weekly for the largest majority of my life, starting at the age of 1.

I had them for asthma in my late 20s/roughly 30 years old. I did serum shots for about 1.5 years. I do think it helped with my asthma, but the effect if any was mild.

I had allergy shots about 15y ago when I was diagnosed with asthma and had allergy testing. Even though I was diagnosed with asthma as an adult, I know that I've had asthma and allergies all of my life. Anyway, after diagnosis, I began the shots and after two years I stopped because I didn't notice a difference.

Diana,

Do you still have asthma attacks? I'm just curious because I had severe asthma symptoms prior to my mid-teens and then it faded away during my 20s. Asthma has been associated with chronic magnesium deficiency, and research trials have even shown that magnesium treats asthma, in many cases.

Before I corrected my chronic magnesium deficiency (about a year and a half ago), for a number of years I often had breathing episodes that seemed just like asthma. I couldn't take a deep breath and breathing seemed labored and shallow. It was very similar to asthma, but there was no wheezing.

Occasionally I would wake up during the night, gasping for air, with the impression that I had stopped breathing. And I wouldn't be able to take a deep breath, so it was difficult to get back to sleep. And of course, my doctors said that my breathing was fine. Rolling Eyes After I restored some magnesium reserves, those breathing problems disappeared and they only return if I forget to take enough magnesium regularly.

Tex

Yes, for many years. I was never able to take the full dose/injection. And ended up with more allergies and sensitivities. I feel the immune system did not react as planned.

None for me...I did have a full barrage of tests for trees, animals, foods, etc. They talked about weekly shots, I couldn’t seem to find the time to go back....
