(Last Updated On: June 18, 2018)

allergies and brain functionNew research has discovered that allergies can slow brain function, as well as cause lethargy and a loss of energy. The research, led by allergy specialist Talal Nsouli, M.D., an associate professor at Georgetown University, studied 98 patients who suffer from seasonal and environmental allergies.

The study found that 82% experienced extreme fatigue and chronic lethargy, and following treatment, most found increased energy levels.

Dr. Nsouli also found that irritability, depression and symptoms that appear like attention deficit disorder also appear with allergies. High levels of histamine appear to be the cause of the reduced brain function.

Chronic fatigue and asthma have been linked in other research. Research from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, for example, found that among 24 patients, chronic fatigue existed in more than half of them.
