Signs of spring in Buffalo include one of the worst allergy seasons in all of the United States | Local News https://xovenagricultor.org/signs-of-spring-in-buffalo-include-one-of-the-worst-allergy-seasons-in-all-of-the-united-states-local-news/ Fri, 06 May 2022 09:45:00 +0000 https://xovenagricultor.org/signs-of-spring-in-buffalo-include-one-of-the-worst-allergy-seasons-in-all-of-the-united-states-local-news/

It’s easy to argue that the changing seasons in Western New York include summers that rival the best in the world.

They also cause some of the worst allergy seasons in America.

Buffalo ranks eighth most intimidating nationwide, according to a new report from the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America.

“The beauty of this region is nature,” said Dr. Roland Honeine, allergist and immunologist at Buffalo Medical Group. “The price to pay for this beauty is having worse allergies.”

Scranton, Pennsylvania, tops the list of “2022 Allergy Capitals,” an annual look at the 100 largest metropolitan areas in the United States. Wichita, Kan. And South Texas followed. Albany was No. 10; Syracuse, 16.

Seattle ranked last, just ahead of Durham, NC, Denver and several other West Coast areas.

The ranking took into account spring and fall pollen count scores, use of over-the-counter allergy medications and the regional availability of board-certified allergists and immunologists.

Why did Buffalo rank so high?

The region has a sufficient number of allergy specialists, said Honeine, himself an allergy sufferer, who pointed to the climate as the reason.

Pollen-related allergic reactions are strongest when trees and plants bloom in the spring and weeds bloom in the fall.

The spring pollen season tends to last several weeks in warmer US climates, but occurs in a narrower and more intense window in Western New York. Later in the year, warmer fall conditions allow ragweed season to linger before a first hard frost puts an end to the pollination cycle. Both pollen spikes count, delivering a double whammy for seasonal allergy sufferers and traditionally pushing the region to the top of the national allergy rankings, Honeine said.

Climate change has further compressed the window between winter and summer, shortening spring conditions, he said, and lengthening milder autumn temperatures, further increasing pollen counts and adding to the burden.

“We’ve seen a steady increase in pollen counts over the past decade,” he said. “We have seen patients arrive with more and more symptoms. It gets worse every year. »







Dr. Roland Honeine, allergist and immunologist at Buffalo Medical Group

Climate change has worsened already difficult conditions for people with seasonal allergies in the Buffalo area, says Dr. Roland Honeine, allergist and immunologist at Buffalo Medical Group and president of the Buffalo Asthma & Allergy Society.

A heat wave in February 2021 that led to two pollen blasts last spring also helps explain Buffalo’s position in the latest report, Honeine said, as well as other differences the researchers have yet to fully explain. understood. All lead to greater use of over-the-counter drugs, another important metric that explains why Buffalo ranks high.

Pollen count is generally higher when it is drier and windier, and lower when it is raining. The pollen count was 2.2 out of 12 on Wednesday. It climbed above 10 on Thursday, where it is expected to remain for the next few days. It was expected to hit 11.8 on Saturday, according to pollen.com.

These numbers create the kind of conditions that create troubling symptoms that can go far beyond sinus congestion, sneezing, and watery eyes.

“People can’t wear their contact lenses,” Honeine said. “I have patients who have trouble sleeping because of nasal congestion. It can also affect concentration during the day. It’s not a cosmetic issue. It’s really something that affects your quality of life.

Urban density also helps explain additional suffering in recent decades, according to the 2022 Allergy Capitals report. This tends to have the greatest proportional impact on black and Hispanic Americans, who already have higher rates of asthma and allergies due to “a long history of discrimination in American housing policies.” concludes the report.

“Millions of people already suffer from seasonal allergic rhinitis, and pollen allergies are a major cause,” the researchers write. “If this cycle continues, we could see the number of people with seasonal allergies increase.”

Measures that can ease symptoms include medication, nasal rinses, indoor air filters, and spending time outdoors wisely, including wearing a mask if necessary. Contact your primary care provider if you need more support.

10 invasive plants that can also trigger allergies | Multimedia https://xovenagricultor.org/10-invasive-plants-that-can-also-trigger-allergies-multimedia/ Sat, 30 Apr 2022 18:00:00 +0000 https://xovenagricultor.org/10-invasive-plants-that-can-also-trigger-allergies-multimedia/

Every spring, many people think of allergies. Common allergens are plants or weeds known as noxious weeds. Federal, state and local authorities legally classify weeds or noxious plants as harmful to people, wildlife and agriculture. Many noxious plants or weeds are also considered invasive, meaning they are not native to the local ecosystem or even the United States.

Humans often spread invasive species, albeit unintentionally. For example, large ships can carry aquatic organisms in ballast water and small boats can carry them on their propellers. The seeds of plants used for ornamental purposes can spread, allowing them to grow in the wild.

From spring to fall, plants release tiny pollen grains that fertilize plants of the same species. Most flowering plants that spread their pollen through insects do not cause allergies. Weeds, grasses and trees are the main sources of pollen that can cause allergies. A pollen allergy is called allergic rhinitis, more commonly known as hay fever.

Wyndly compiled a list of 10 invasive species and described their impact on seasonal allergies, citing data from the US Department of Agriculture and the Invasive Species Atlas. Plants such as ragweed, which is native to the entire continental United States, are not included.

Over-the-counter case: April 2022 https://xovenagricultor.org/over-the-counter-case-april-2022/ Thu, 28 Apr 2022 13:07:30 +0000 https://xovenagricultor.org/over-the-counter-case-april-2022/ This month’s OTC case studies focus on asthma.

CASE 1: Inhalers

Q: RD is a 35 year old male looking for an over the counter asthma inhaler. He was diagnosed with mild intermittent asthma 20 years ago, and the doctor recommended an inhaler. Symptoms of RD, usually chest tightness, appear every few months. He also occasionally suffers from shortness of breath and wheezing which requires medical attention, although he has never been hospitalized for this reason. Asthma does not interrupt his sleep. RD recently lost his medication, including an inhaler, while traveling. What should the pharmacist recommend?

A: Since RD has been diagnosed with mild intermittent asthma and has no warning symptoms, it would be appropriate to recommend an over-the-counter inhaler. Primatene Mist is FDA-approved for mild symptoms of intermittent asthma, such as chest tightness, shortness of breath, and wheezing. It contains 0.125 mg of epinephrine, which acts as a bronchodilator. Patients 12 years old
and older can use 1 oral inhalation if symptomatic. Remind RD to wait at least 4 hours between doses and to wash the mouthpiece of the inhaler after each use. Advise him to see a doctor immediately if he has more than 2 asthma attacks in a week, if he does not feel better within 20 minutes, if he needs more than 8 inhalations in 24 hours or if his symptoms worsen.1

CASE 2: Allergy avoidance in asthmatic patients

Q: NM is a 22 year old female seeking advice on how to manage her allergies and asthma. She takes fluticasone propionate 250 mcg/salmeterol 50 mcg, loratadine 10 mg daily and montelukast 10 mg daily and uses an albuterol inhaler as needed. NM says her asthma is well controlled and she has not used the inhaler for 6 months. However, she is worried because her allergies get worse every spring and she is frequently hospitalized for an exacerbation of her asthma. NM said she loves being outdoors and wishes she could open the windows in the spring before it gets too hot. She is allergic to pollen and wants to know if she can do anything else to relieve her asthma symptoms before the start of pollen season. What should the pharmacist advise?

A: Advise NM to avoid pollen, if possible, by checking the forecast and staying indoors during peak hours. Although she loves the spring weather, she can help reduce pollen exposure by keeping windows closed and using air conditioning. If NM really wants to be outside, she can avoid touching her eyes and wash her face when she comes inside. She should change clothes after being outdoors and take a shower if possible.2 Additionally, NM should consider talking to her primary care provider, who may add another allergy medication, such as an intranasal corticosteroid.

CASE 3: Allergic rhinitis in asthmatic patients

Q: HH is a 42 year old female looking for an over-the-counter nasal spray for her allergies. She takes fluticasone propionate 100 mcg/salmeterol 50 mcg, cetirizine 10 mg daily and uses an albuterol inhaler as needed. HH recently visited her doctor because she has itchy eyes, post nasal drip and a runny nose. She has been experiencing these symptoms for a few weeks since it has been warmer outside. HH’s primary care provider recommended that she start using a nasal spray for allergies. What recommendations should the pharmacist provide?

A: Intranasal corticosteroids are very effective for allergic symptoms. Several over-the-counter formulations are available, such as budesonide (Rhinocort Allergy Spray), fluticasone furoate (Flonase Sensimist), fluticasone propionate (Flonase Allergy Relief), and triamcinolone acetonide (Nasacort Allergy 24HR).3 Advise HH that although intranasal corticosteroids are generally well tolerated, some patients experience coughing, nasal bleeding or discomfort, or sneezing. She can buy any formulation. However, HH should continue to take his other medications, including cetirizine 10mg daily.

CASE 4: Asthma and home testing for COVID-19

Q: SM is a 22 year old woman seeking a home COVID-19 test after being exposed 2 days ago to someone who tested positive. SM is worried because she takes medication to control her asthma, although she has no symptoms of COVID-19, such as chills, cough, fatigue, fever or loss of smell or disgust. She received 2 doses of a COVID-19 mRNA vaccine, the second in May 2021. Although she knows a polymerase chain reaction test is the most accurate, she wants results fast. What should the pharmacist recommend?

A: Inform SM that COVID-19 home tests can provide results in minutes compared to lab tests, which can take days. She can use any over-the-counter, FDA-approved COVID-19 home test, a list of which is available on the FDA’s website. SM should take her home test at least 5 days after exposure and if negative she should consider retesting 1-2 days after the initial test. If positive, she should stay home for at least 5 days and follow local and national guidelines. She should also wear a tight-fitting mask around others until she is confirmed negative.4 If SM has symptoms, such as shortness of breath, she should see a doctor. Additionally, once she is confirmed negative, she should consider scheduling a booster dose for the COVID-19 vaccine. Adults should receive a booster dose of Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna (COVID-19 mRNA vaccines) at least 5 months after the last dose of their primary series.

Climate change can make allergies worse. Oklahoma is no exception https://xovenagricultor.org/climate-change-can-make-allergies-worse-oklahoma-is-no-exception/ Tue, 26 Apr 2022 01:53:31 +0000 https://xovenagricultor.org/climate-change-can-make-allergies-worse-oklahoma-is-no-exception/

Worsening allergies are just one of the ways Clay Pope has seen climate change play out in his life.

Hanging from a wall in his barn shop in Loyal, in the northwest of the state, are a pair of ice skates that belonged to his grandfather, who often skated on a pond in the winter.

“I’ve only seen it twice in my life cold enough to have the courage to cross the pond,” said Pope, who works with the Department of Agriculture’s Southern Plains Climate Hub in El Reno.

Experts say fewer cold spells are among the factors that have created longer growing seasons for all kinds of vegetation – including weeds, grasses and trees whose pollen makes many of us itchy and sneeze.

For Pope, that meant year-round allergy symptoms.

A mulberry spore is seen under a microscope April 18 at the Oklahoma Allergy & Asthma Clinic.

“In the past, you got that break and you got a bit of a break,” he said. “It doesn’t look like you’re getting that break like you used to.”

Pollen seasons have already lengthened by around 20 days a year since 1990. And new research bodes ill for allergy sufferers: Climate change is likely to make pollen allergy seasons longer and more intense, according to researchers Yingxiao Zhang and Allison Steiner from the University of Michigan.
