The documentary “Living with an Allergy”, directed by Nina Whitehouse, features four families from the Manchester Allergy Support Group, each discussing how allergies have affected their lives.
From parenting children with severe food allergies to discovering a life threatening wasp venom allergy in adulthood, the programme looks at:
- How the allergies were discovered.
- How food allergy changes how you shop for food.
- The challenges faced when eating out, such as ensuring restaurants are aware of cross contamination risks.
- The emergency medication (and other safeguards, such as translation cards) that you need to always have to hand.
