It is estimated that approximately 55 million Americans – 22% of the population – suffer from one or more allergic diseases. Allergies are commonly linked to both acute and chronic illnesses, accounting for roughly 10% of patient visits to their physician's office and a leading cause of school absenteeism. To establish effective management of allergy, medical practitioners first identify the source of the allergy, and then choose a course of action to help patients improve their
quality of life.
