“Worst allergy season ever? Might not be an exaggeration for that patient.” 
                                                                                                                                   
-- Dr. Adam Byrne


On this episode, Dr. Mariam Hanna is joined by Dr. Adam Byrne, an expert allergist and clinical immunologist, to unravel the complex relationship between climate change and allergic diseases. Dr. Byrne sheds light on how rising global temperatures, increased pollution, and changing ecosystems are not just environmental issues but are directly impacting the prevalence and severity of allergic conditions.


Together, they dissect the science behind why we're seeing an uptick in cases of asthma, allergic rhinitis, and atopic dermatitis. But the conversation doesn't stop at diagnosis and treatment; it also covers practical advice for allergists and patients alike on mitigating the health impacts of climate change. From advocating for cleaner air policies to adjusting daily routines, Dr. Byrne offers actionable strategies to address the evolving landscape of allergies.


This episode is essential listening for anyone in the allergy field, providing a comprehensive overview of the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead in managing allergies in a changing climate. Whether you're a healthcare professional or someone navigating the complexities of living with allergies, Dr. Byrne's insights offer valuable guidance for adapting to our planet's new normal.
