allergyWhen people make New Year resolutions, they often reflect appearances. However, what if resolutions were made to reflect a change on the inside? This year (and every year), the team at Bluegrass Family Allergy wants to help you live a full and active life – without allergies or asthma controlling you!

So, consider the following asthma and allergy resolutions to make this year:

Asthma Resolution: Eat Right & Exercise Often

The most common resolution among Americans is to eat healthier and exercise more. While it’s important to stick to these resolutions, people with allergies or asthma will need to be extra careful. When you exercise, be mindful of the cold weather and indoor/outdoor air pollution, as those two elements can trigger an asthma attack. Come spring, consider exercising indoors to escape the pollen and a potential allergy fit!

If you struggle with food allergies, remember to read labels carefully while trying new, healthy foods to ensure safety. As always, carry your epinephrine injector with you at all times to avoid anaphylactic shock.

Allergy Resolution: Review Your Action Plan

If you suffer from allergies or asthma, it’s important to have an action plan. If your allergies begin to flare or an asthma attack is triggered, do you know what to do? Dr. Brauer can educate you on the steps to take if your allergies or asthma take over. It’s vital to know how to properly use your inhaler, epinephrine injector, and other medications at the onset of an attack. Allow Dr. Brauer to help!
