Nowadays, many people experience symptoms of allergies to things like pollen, house dust, and food. Here, we will look at five recommended apps for allergy symptom sufferers.
ZYRTEC ® Allergy Cast
This is the first app to be launched by the allergy medication producer ZYRTEC®. It uses location information to predict the weather and pollen index, from which users can find out their AllergyCast for that day. Many people find the app very useful because the AllergyCast makes planning for the day so much easier. The app also works as a health care tool because it enables users to manage their individual allergy symptoms.
Food Allergy Detective
Quite a few people think that they could be suffering from food allergies. They may not have been diagnosed by a doctor but they feel bad when they eat certain foods. Food Allergy Detective is a must for these people. Users record the food they have eaten and the symptoms they experience as they occur. This information can be used to check the patterns and potential of the user’s allergies. Many people have discovered that they have food allergies by using this app.
Cook IT Allergy Free
It’s very difficult for food allergy sufferers to find recipes that don’t contain allergens like gluten, dairy, eggs, and nuts. This app is very popular because it contains over 200 recipes without allergens. Users can customize recipes by substituting ingredients that cause allergic reactions. Cook IT Allergy Free is not just for allergy sufferers. There are also recipes for people who eat a gluten free casein free (GFCF) diet because of autism or celiac disease. This app has even gained attention from food specialists and was selected as one of the Best Healthy Cooking Apps by Bon Appétit magazine.
Food, Calories and Nutrition
This app lists the nutritional information of over 7,600 food products. Information on the nutritional content of each item, including vitamins and minerals, is provided by the U. S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). This app is not just for food allergy sufferers or chronic disease patients with dietary restrictions. It’s also useful for people who want to stay healthy and eat a balanced diet.
Allergy FT: Allergy Food Translator
This app is great for food allergy sufferers who travel abroad a lot. Users create a personalized allergy profile which the app translates into other languages. It’s very difficult to talk about illnesses and allergies in a different language but you don’t need to struggle when you use Allergy FT. Just show the app to the waiter in your destination country and you can enjoy your meal without worrying about allergens.
Allergy FT currently supports English, French, and German. More languages will be available in the future.
These apps can help anyone to lead a healthier life; not just people with food allergies. Why not give them a try?
