Allergic Rhinitis: We have a large burden of allergic rhinitis in Australia, which can significantly affect quality of life.  Allergic disease can affect the lungs, ears, nose and throat, it can affect people’s workplace productivity, absenteeism and asthma control. Patients can sometimes trivialise this disease and there is a high rate of self-treatment, so how can we help our patients to get the right treatment?

Vitamin D, part 1 of a 3 part series –Childhood & Adolescence. Vitamin D deficiency does occur during childhood and adolescence and particularly in children that may have dark skin pigmentation or those that cover up for cultural reasons. Pharmacists need to be aware of the potential symptoms of vitamin D deficiency, and what to do if they suspect it, as the first two decades of life really are a critical window to optimise the bone bank, and reduce fracture risk later on in life.
