Suffer with Hay-fever no more!

Tags : 

I don’t know about you, but I have been a Hay-fever sufferer for years now (developed in my late 30’s) , I used to be able to take Cetirizine Hydrochloride or Loratadine for the symptoms but in recent years, only the Cetirizine worked, well thats what I thought…… until this year, oh no, now the over the counter remedies don’t work and I felt awful (almost like a cold but I knew it was the hay-fever) with all the lovely weather we were having lately, I could not even sit in the garden for long before the nose started running, sneezing every 5 seconds, and scratching my eyes making the mascara go all over my face! it was getting unbearable.

As I work for the clinic, I asked the doctor for a steroid injection, as I’d seen patients coming in for that for years and hey presto… the itchy eyes and the constant running nose and sneezing has stopped, voila!

If like me (before working at the clinic),  you had/have no clue what other options are out there for this annoying allergy, now you do!

We are a private clinic in Luton providing a fast solution to your hay-fever symptoms if antihistamines don’t work.

As most people know, Hay-fever is an allergy to grass or hay pollen, which effect 1 in 5 people in the UK,  and you can even develop hay-fever in your 40’s, although most people are diagnosed in their teens or early 20’s.

Don’t suffer any more, don’t delay call us today 🙂


Be Clear On Cancer Campaign Launched

Tags : 

Book yourself an appointment with a Bedfordshire private GP as soon as you can if you’ve had heartburn on most days for three weeks or more, since this can be a sign of stomach or oesophageal cancer – a message that is being emphasised this week as part of the Be Clear on Cancer campaign launched by Public Health England.

Figures from the organisation have revealed that just 55 per cent of people would actually go to see their doctor if they had been suffering from heartburn for this amount of time and 59 per cent of those asked said they didn’t know heartburn could be a sign of cancer.

Early diagnosis for stomach or oesophageal cancer is vital – about 67 per cent of those diagnosed with the disease at the earliest stage live for at least five more years, but this falls to about three per cent for people diagnosed comparatively late.

“The earlier cancer is diagnosed, the higher the chance of survival. If we’re to improve early diagnosis rates, we need to encourage people with symptoms to go to their doctor, which is what this latest Be Clear on Cancer campaign aims to do,” national director of health and wellbeing at PHE professor Kevin Fenton remarked.

This comes as NHS England recommended that patients be given the option of referring themselves for cancer tests in a bid to improve diagnosis speed, allowing people to make appointments at a hospital rather than with their local GP.

According to the organisation, diagnosing 60 rather than 50 per cent of those with cancer early would mean that 8,000 more people would still be alive five years on from their initial diagnosis.
