Exercise-Induced Anaphylaxis can be managed
Like any allergy, once it is addressed, it should be avoided. Medical experts advise avoiding trigger foods or medicines on days that exercise is anticipated. It should be noted that it is safest to avoid triggers altogether.
Where preventative treatments fail, EpiPens can be used to counteract the reactions. The epinephrine auto-injector should be within reach at all times in the case of an emergency.
If these symptoms sound familiar, there’s no reason to hang up your jogging shoes. Contact your health specialist to verify the cause and develop a plan. If these signs aren’t showing up during or following your workout session, continue your regular exercise regimen. There’s no need to waste a day on the couch and take your great health for granted.
