Research indicates that this is a critical step to aiding long-term quality of life. Early identification has been shown to facilitate prompt and effective treatment, and therefore help prevent the progression of allergies to asthma -- a disease associated with significant economic costs, health risks and even morbidity and mortality.(3)
