March 2013 - Coping with Allergies
Around 21 million adults (or one in four people) in the UK suffer from allergy and this figure continues to rise.
Medical research has shown an allergy to be the reaction of the body's immune system to a normally harmless substance, such as pollen, food, or house dust mite. Consequently, the body identifies the substance as a threat and produces an inappropriate, exaggerated response to it. Medication cannot treat allergies but it can tackle an allergic reaction (to learn more, please visit NHS.uk).
There are different types of allergies and intolerances and very often these conditions are misunderstood. Consequently, early diagnosis is crucial for future treatment and management of the condition.
With the summer months just round the corner Clarity Healthcare will be raising awareness about intolerances and sensitivities; the causes, symptoms, diagnosis and treatment.
We have various options available as detailed below, please contact your Account Manager or Clarity Healthcare for more information.
