Target population:

Adult and pediatric populations.

In our consultation with an allergist physician, we conduct a comprehensive medical history and physical examination of the patient to identify the causes of their allergy. Then, we recommend relevant tests based on the presented pathology, with the most common being skin allergy tests with environmental allergens such as:

  • Dust Mites
  • Animal Epithelia
  • Food
  • Medications
  • Pollen
  • Among others

The Allergology Medical Consultation Service at Fundación Valle del Lili was established in 2005 to serve patients of all ages with allergic pathologies. Our team of specialists performs various diagnostic procedures and specific treatments for these diseases.

In short, our goal is to provide a high-quality and personalized service for the diagnosis and treatment of allergies in our patients.

At the Allergy service we carry out controlled provocation tests, in which the patient is exposed to a food or medicine to which it is desired to rule out or confirm the presence of allergy. Similarly, nasal provocations with suspicious environmental allergens can be performed to verify their clinical relevance.

We also offer the desensitization service to drugs and food. This strategy can induce tolerance either transient or permanent, according to the patient’s needs. In addition, we offer the possibility of treatment with specific immunotherapy also known as “allergy vaccines”, which consists of inducing tolerance to an environmental allergen to which an individual is sensitized and generates inflammation and disabling symptoms. This treatment is considered by the World Health Organization (WHO) as the only one that can modify the natural history of certain allergic diseases such as asthma and rhinitis.

Finally, we have an outpatient service consisting of four offices, a procedure room, and an observation room to provide more comfort to patients.

Our Allergy service is recognized as a national and international reference center in the diagnosis and management of allergic diseases, supported by multiple published and ongoing research works, continuously obtaining scientific information to benefit patients. These aspects allow this Allergology service of Fundación Valle del Lili to be consolidated as a service of the highest academic and scientific quality.

At Fundación Valle del Lili, specialized training and teaching are essential to guarantee the validity of the specialty in the clinic, the region and the country, as well as the academic quality of the service. That is why since 2016 there is a specialization program in Allergology, which provides society with medical specialists with great ethical and scientific values.

It is recommended to consult an allergist as soon as any symptoms or suspicions of an allergic condition arise, such as:

  • Chronic cough
  • Bronchial spasms
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Sneezing
  • Congestion and nasal itching
  • Eye itching and tearing
  • Skin flare-ups
  • Suspected drug or food reactions
  • Reactions to insect bites
  • Recurrent Food-Related Gastrointestinal Symptoms

We have four specialists in Allergology at the Allergology Service of the Fundación Valle del Lili:

  • Dr. Diana Lucia Silva
  • Dr. Manuela Olaya
  • Dr. Luis F. Ramírez
  • Dr. Carlos D. Serrano

All of them have extensive knowledge and experience in the management of allergic diseases and three of them have been trained abroad. One of our specialists also has training in the area of Clinical Immunology for the management of patients with primary immunodeficiencies.

Teamwork is fundamental in this Service, so it is very common for complex cases to be discussed together, in order to provide the best therapeutic option to each patient with an interdisciplinary service.
