Thanks! She just had a sweat test to see if she had cystic fibrosis in addition to her asthma, and we were able to rule it out. They are trying to determine why she can't keep her O2 levels up on her own, and they fall fast for no apparent reason when she is completely fine and active less than an hour beforehand. I hope we find some answers. They said we should have answers in about 2 days (on the phone call - we go in at 11).
Great Valentine's Day Tips! 💖💘💓💌 Yes. Be thoughtful and have a healthy holiday! A book of poetry and a cozy blanket that is safe would be great! A nice mug and a box of herb tea. A sweater that is safe to wear. A pair of slippers is always nice and comforting! For folks that are home bound, how about an adult coloring book and some colored pencils? A nice picture frame that has a picture of you and your sweetie in it! Have a Happy Valentine's Day! 😍
I love those ideas, AAFA and Deb! There are so many cool (non-traditional) gift options out there that can be fun to celebrate and dont bother asthma/allergies: video games, board games, DVDs, or books also make great gifts.

@LoriC try talking to the stores managers before hand call . Perhaps they can open the store early for you or shop for you . Unfortunately it’s policy and essential employees are trying to protect their health . Also other patrons are trying to do the same . At my job we had passengers who knew they were waiting on a pending Covid test and still got on a plane anyway without a mask . Every situation is not going to be perfect or to your liking but many are in the same boat as you .
I’ve had oas to apples, pears, all stone fruit, almonds as well as hazelnuts since my childhood. And it’s gotten progressively worse. I used to be able to eat these foods cooked or baked, now this is not even possible anymore. I got a blood test a few years ago and only hazelnut came back positive. But I know when eating raw apple my throat closes up. I have to carry an epi pen with me now. Any chance it could get better? I still get dreams of eating apples.

On Dec. 3, 2020, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) announced updates to the clinical guidelines used to diagnose and manage asthma. The new guidelines are titled "The 2020 Focused Updates to the Asthma Management Guidelines: A Report from The National Asthma Education and Prevention Program Expert Panel Working Group." The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), part of the NIH, oversaw the National Asthma Education and Prevention Program Coordinating Committee (NAEPPCC) and...
All vacuums have the same basic purpose: to remove debris like dust, dirt and pet dander from your floors and furniture. But not all vacuums are the same. Some vacuums actually fill your air with the particles and allergens you are trying to remove. If you have asthma and allergies, you need a vacuum that will contain allergens as it removes them to help you keep a healthier indoor environment.
Flowers, candy, perfume and candles may be common gifts for Valentine’s Day. But if you give them to your loved ones with asthma and allergies, you may give them something you didn’t plan on – triggers that cause symptoms. Instead, give non-traditional asthma and allergy friendly gifts.
Blah blah blah. Probably just a numbers game. Wonder who requested the test. Too many tests are geared to get the answers they want and not true results. The same amount of oxygen does go through a mask, but with breathing issues, it is harder to pull the same volume of air through it. Kind of like a vacuum cleaner trying to suck a rag though. Any activity with a mask on I am huffing and puffing very hard and my chest starts hurting severely. Same activity without a mask, no issues.
Novartis today announced that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the supplemental Biologics License Application for Xolair® (omalizumab) prefilled syringe for self-injection in appropriate patients across all approved US indications.1 Xolair is the only FDA-approved biologic designed to target and block immunoglobulin E (IgE) for the treatment of moderate to severe persistent allergic asthma, chronic idiopathic urticaria (CIU) and nasal polyps.
Having good indoor air quality is an important part of living in a healthy home. You can improve your indoor air quality by reducing the sources of allergens and irritants in your home. "We take about 20,000 breaths each day and spend 90% of our time indoors. Reducing exposure to substances in the environment around us that trigger allergy and asthma symptoms is important. Eliminating these indoor triggers is a great place to start.” – Kenneth Mendez, CEO and president of the Asthma and...

Research has brought us amazing medical discoveries and treatments. But research is also a continual process if we are to pursue better health. Asthma and allergies are complex conditions. Research gives us a better understanding of them. This can lead to new medicines, ways to improve quality of life, and hopefully, cures. And research can be most effective when it centers around the qualities and needs of the patients it aims to serve. The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA)...
The testing for COVID-19 is based on looking for specific gene sequences unique to that virus. Those are gene sequences that do not appear in other similar viruses. How do the new coronavirus tests work? Updated to add: you theoretically could have both viruses in which case you will test positive for flu A/B.
