Making Sense of Allergies
Allergies are frustrating, restrictive and sometimes frightening conditions and they seem to be rising at an astonishing rate in developed countries. But there is concern that allergy has also become a catch-all diagnosis for unexplained symptoms, and this rise has been accompanied by a lot of non-medical diagnosis and treatment.
This guide investigates ideas about the causes, diagnosis and treatment with a group of allergy specialists and has brought together points to help you make sense of it all.
This guide was developed in collaboration with the British Society for Immunology, Cochrane UK, Allergy Academy, Allergy UK, Asthma UK, Anaphylaxis Campaign and the British Society for Allergy & Clinical Immunology.
