Dr Adriana Le is a Clinical Immunologist / Allergist
Dr Le cares for people with diseases of the immune system,
allergic disease, autoimmune disease, primary immunodeficiency & autoinflammatory disease
Your immune system defends against infections from germs (bacteria, viruses, fungi, parasites) and other invaders (cancer cells) while protecting the body’s cells.
Most people’s immune system works effectively to defend the body. Some people have immune system disorders that are due to an underactive immune system – immunodeficiencies, or an overactive immune response – autoimmunity or allergy.
Allergic diseases are extremely common and include food, drug or insect allergy, hay fever (allergic rhinitis), sinus disease, asthma, hives (urticaria) and eczema (atopic dermatitis).
Severe allergic reactions (anaphylaxis) are potentially life-threatening.
Autoimmune diseases can range from the common to rare, and include systemic lupus erythematosus (lupus) and vasculitis.
Immunodeficiency can lead to susceptibility to infections and / or cancer that can be life threatening in severe cases.
