Allergy means an abnormal reaction of the body to the outside agents these are dust / pollen / fungi (molds)/ drugs/ latex/ foods. Their development is due to both genetic and environmental factors.The underlying mechanism involves immunoglobulin E antibodies
(IgE), part of the body’s immune system, binding to an allergen and
then to a receptor on mast cells or basophils where it triggers the
release of inflammatory chemicals such as histamine.
Spirometry is a test that can help diagnose various lung conditions, most commonly chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).Spirometry is also used to monitor the severity of some interstitial Lung disease and Asthma, and their response to treatment. It helps predict the decline in lung functions and helps act in time.
