Keeping allergy sufferers safe


We know that living with an allergy can be scary

Allergy is currently the most common disease in Europe, with up to 20% of sufferers at risk of an asthma attack or anaphylactic shock every day1. It is estimated that anaphylaxis-type reactions occur in approximately 1 in 1000 of the general population2, with hospital admissions for severe allergic reactions rising by 615% in just 20 years3.

Allergic reactions can be caused by food substances or medications, insect stings and airborne particles, or even touchable substances such as latex.

"Interestingly people who are allergic who have an anaphylactic reaction to one [allergen] can have multiple serious allergies that they can be anaphylactic to.
It's one of the reasons why it's very important to wear a MedicAlert"
