🌟 What is Mast Cell Disease? It’s a condition where certain cells in our body, called mast cells, become unpredictable. These cells are usually responsible for protecting us from infections and helping heal wounds, but when they malfunction, they can cause a range of issues from severe allergies to chronic pain.

Living with Mast Cell Disease can be challenging, but increased awareness and research are paving the way for better treatments and understanding.

Climate change and global warming are HOT topics of the season, literally! Did you know that rising temperatures are impacting the ability of your to function properly?

Rising temperatures are making it less safe for epinephrine to be left outdoors, cars being the topic of interest. 🚗☀️ Studies have found that leaving epinephrine inside a car for a long period of time can reduce the concentration of epinephrine. And this underdosage can be deadly during anaphylaxis.

Here are a few tips to always remember about your epinephrine:
✅ Remember to always carry your autoinjector wherever you go and no matter what you will be doing!
✅ Use a storage case!
✅ Remember to replace your epinephrine if they were left in hot temperatures for a long period of time!
✅ Make sure your devices are not expired!

Check out Allergy & Asthma Network to learn more: https://allergyasthmanetwork.org/news/why-you-shouldnt-keep-epinephrine-hot-car/

06/10/2024

🚨 If you or your child are at risk for a severe allergic reaction (anaphylaxis), epinephrine should always be your first line of treatment. ⏰ Antihistamines only treat minor symptoms and can take up to 30 minutes to work.

Stay safe and be prepared! 🩺✨Listen to this important advice from board-certified allergist Andrea Pappalardo, MD in our new Ask the Allergist video in collaboration with American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (ACAAI).

Are amusement parks on your itinerary for some summer fun?🎢🛼🎡 Well good news - many amusement parks take food allergies seriously. Each amusement park has a set of guidelines regarding outside food policies, dining options, allergen menus, and points of contact. Take the time to do your research beforehand to make sure you and your family have a safe and memorable experience!

Some quick tips include:
• Pack snacks and supplemental items.
• Bring a collapsible cooler (as well as freezable cooler packs) to tote safe food into the parks and keep epinephrine auto-injectors cool during long, hot days.
• When carrying two epinephrine auto-injectors, consider using a small backpack to keep essential items secure and safe.

Oral Corticosteroids (OCS) for Asthma | Allergy & Asthma Network 06/03/2024

What’s the difference between Oral Corticosteroids (OCS) and Inhaled Corticosteroids (ICS)? Do you rely on frequent use of oral corticosteroids to control your asthma? OCS should be used to treat acute asthma flares on a short-term course. If you rely on OCS to treat your asthma – it could be a sign that your asthma is uncontrolled. Too frequent use of OCS can lead to serious short- and long-term side effects.

Find out more about the difference between OCS and ICS with this infographic and whether it’s time to talk with your asthma specialist about a new treatment plan.
