My lovely niece is struggling to manage her severe asthma and fatigue with A Levels lots of sport, and school plays. She has lots of food sensitivties especially to fresh fruit veg/ and has reactions with palms soles of feet to grass/ shower gels etc. Her big brother has anaphylatic shock syndrome and carries an epipen and her little brother has experienced one event of anaphylatic shock. Hashimoto's in the family.
She showed me her blood test results from Aug 2013 and I wonder if you can help her with questions for her GP before she sees them tomorrow. They are upping her asthma medication from inhalers to add in tablets??
