Food Allergies and Asthma

People with asthma who also have food allergies are more likely to suffer from anaphylaxis when having a food allergy reaction. All individuals with food allergies need to carry an epinephrine auto-injector at all times. If you have asthma and food allergies, you must take preventative steps and be prepared by carrying emergency medications. Daily life requires a high level of awareness, planning, and educating others about your health condition. Teachers, co-workers, neighbours, and family can all help you live safely with asthma and food allergies.
