When it comes to allergies, Americans don't make the grade

According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America's (AAFA) first National Allergy Awareness Test released today, allergy sufferers scored average to failing grades in the areas of awareness, triggers, symptoms, prevention, and treatment. Results from the Test show that allergy sufferers think they are knowledgeable about allergies, however there is a gap between what sufferers know about allergies and the impact allergy symptoms have on their lives. It is especially important this time of year for consumers to educate themselves about allergies and develop an Allergy Action Plan by logging on to www.allergyactionplan.com.

"When it comes to our health, we need to strive to do better than average," says Mike Tringale, director of marketing and communications at AAFA. "To raise the allergy grade, Americans need to learn how to manage symptoms so allergies do not impact their quality of life, by disrupting daily activities or preventing attendance at important events."

The Test, conducted by International Communications Research, surveyed 1,005 Americans and is part of AAFA's nationwide Allergy Action Plan to help consumers recognize, prevent and safely treat allergy symptoms. The Web site, www.allergyactionplan.com, provides information about spring allergies, local allergy forecasts and Allergy AlertTM e-mails to tell allergy sufferers when local pollen counts are elevated.
