A review article currently in press from the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology: In Practice found that allergic rhinitis significantly impacts work performance and may also contribute to time lost from work. In this review, data was pooled from 28 previously performed studies that examined the effect of chronic allergic rhinitis on work performance. They found that allergic rhinitis is associated with a “substantial adverse impact on the productivity at work with an estimated 35.9% impairment in sufferers.” They also found a beneficial effect of treatment of allergic rhinitis on work productivity. One study showed that treatment significantly improved both absenteeism and performance. –Dr. Hill
