The Significance of Allergies to Medical Implants: Product Spotlight
Allergies and environmental sensitivities are on the rise in the Western world. We all know that more people than ever are allergic to nuts, gluten, mold, etc. and it turns out that many people are also allergic to metals such as nickel, cobalt, and chrome. Many people already know this because they react to their jewelry, piercings, or watches. Despite this fact, doctors place metal implants in patients while seldom testing patients for metal allergies prior to the procedures. Unfortunately, some patients have poor outcomes after surgery such as chronic pain or swelling at the implant site or general symptoms of inflammation such as fatigue, muscle aches, and malaise. Sensiband is an FDA-registered wearable device that allows patients to test themselves for allergies to the 7 most common implanted metals without the need for a prescription.
- Explain why testing for metal allergies is necessary.
- Describe the available options for metal allergy testing.
- Identify why many doctors have not been thinking about metal allergies and testing their patients prior to implant surgery.
