Many of us look to the new year as an opportunity to reflect and evaluate our lives to see if there is anything we would like to change. As those with food allergies know, effective management requires ongoing vigilance and evaluation to determine if we are doing our best to successfully manage our allergies.
The new year is a great time to review our emergency action plans, revisit how to use an epinephrine auto injector and learn from any close calls with allergens that may have occurred over the past year. The Asthma and Allergy Foundation provides some helpful tips regarding an annual review of an allergen prevention plan at http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/new-years-resolutions-for-people-with-food-and-latex-allergies-300385594.html.
Best wishes for a happy and healthy 2017!
