Why You Should Make Allergy Screening Part of Your Annual Checkup

Allergies Are Very Common

More than 50 million people in the United States have allergies. We develop allergies because of our environment, genetics, and sometimes as a result of other conditions that may seem unrelated. Common allergies include:

  • Peanuts
  • Tree nuts
  • Milk and dairy products
  • Fish and shellfish
  • Pollen
  • Latex
  • Pets (cats, dogs, birds, etc.)

Allergies Can Interfere with Your Life in Sneaky Ways

According to the American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology, allergies are also the 6th leading cause of chronic illness. Though allergies are often dismissed as minor annoyances, they can actually create a lot of serious problems that you may not expect. If you have an allergy, don’t know it, and regularly come into contact with the allergen, you could begin experiencing serious symptoms, such as:

  • Hives
  • Diarrhea
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Digestive problems
  • Migraines
  • Fatigue

There are many more ways an unknown allergy could affect you. Sometimes persistent allergy symptoms can even have emotional consequences, making you begin to feel depressed or sad, which can interfere greatly with your life, relationships, and work.
