Do You Have Mast Cell Activation? Mold Testing May Help

By

 

Mast cell activation syndrome (MCAS) is an immunological condition in which mast cells excessively release chemical mediators.  The result is a range of chronic symptoms, which can sometimes include anaphylaxis attacks.  Unfortunately, most people go a lifetime without a diagnosis.  However, if you believe you or a loved one may have this condition, mold testing in Boston, along with specific lifestyle changes, can prove to be significant beneficial factors to your overall health.

Symptoms

 

Although MCAS symptoms come and go, there are a few prevalent signs that tend to hang around.  For the sake of this article, we’re going to focus upon the aspects directly related to the services that Purely Green Environmental can assist with.

 

Because MCAS typically affects systems with inflammation, respiratory concerns are common.  Often mistaken for the common cold, MCAS can appear with signs of congestion and coughing.  However, more severe symptoms can include:

 

o   Wheezing

o   Sleep apnea

o   Hives

o   Itchy or burning skin

o   Difficulty swallowing

o   Nausea or vomiting

o   Headaches or migraines

o   Anaphylaxis

 

Although there are several other ways mast cell activation affects the body, the above mentioned are also common symptoms of prolonged exposure to mold.
