How Many People Do Allergies Affect?
- Researchers think nasal allergies affect about 50 million people in the United States.
- Allergies are increasing. They affect as many as 30 percent of adults and 40 percent of children.1
- Allergic disease, including asthma, is the fifth leading chronic disease in the U.S. in people of all ages. It is the third most common chronic disease in children under 18 years old.1
For some, allergies are a nuisance that is often transient (seasonal) or persistent (perennial) that may be easily treated with over the counter remedies or prescription allergy medications. However, these medications have side effects and need to be taken on a daily basis. For others, allergies are substantial health issues that impact all aspects of their quality of life. For these individuals and their families, allergies are life-altering conditions.
Often, nasal congestion, sneezing itching and wheezing may be the tip of the iceberg when it comes to allergies and asthma. Allergies and asthma are chronic medical conditions that require proper long-term treatment to overcome visits to the emergency room and missing days at work or school. In addition, allergies and asthma, if not treated, can lead to sinus and ear infections, lack of concentration, fatigue, and sleep deprivation
In addition to receiving the most current scientific medical care and diagnostic procedures, patients requiring “desensitization” have access to advanced, state of the art European standards of treatment. This approach (SLIT) "sublingual immunotherapy" or drops is unique to the Allergi Group in the Tampa Bay area. If you are suffering from allergy-induced symptoms, please give us a call for an evaluation.
