Allergies & Impact

Allergic rhinitis, sometimes known as hay fever or allergies, is common in the U.S. and is one of the major causes of chronic illness.

New survey reveals that allergic rhinitis is underdiagnosed and undertreated*

  • While about seven in 10 U.S. adults have experienced symptoms of environmental allergies, only about three in 10 have been diagnosed with either allergic rhinitis or nasal allergies by a health care professional.
  • Nearly half say their environmental allergies have a major-to-moderate negative impact on their daily life.

  • Nearly half say their environmental allergies have a major-to-moderate negative impact on their daily life.
  • More than half report that their allergies have somehow affected their performance at work and/or school (70 percent for employed adults).
  • While about three in four see/talk to some type of healthcare provider (HCP) about their environmental allergies, less than one in five see an allergist, and only about one in 10 have ever discussed allergy immunotherapy (AIT) options with a healthcare provider.

*Data according to a recent online survey within the United States by The Harris Poll in association with ALK-Abelló, Inc. and Green Room Communications on the perceptions of the burden of allergic rhinitis and awareness of allergy treatment options, from September 18-22, 2020 among 2,059 U.S. adults ages 18 and older, of whom, 1,518 ever experience symptoms of environmental allergies. This online survey is not based on a probability sample and therefore no estimate of theoretical sampling error can be calculated.
