Allergy season and the athlete

Saturday June 18, 11
As spring moves into summer, allergy season begins for many athletes.
The Weather Network has pollen forecasts that can help you identify potential allergens in your region that are affecting you. Better yet, obtain a referral to a MD specializing in allergies.
If you are suffering from allergies (or taking other medication) and subject to Doping Control, you have to be very vigilant as to what you ingest. Many allergy medications contain ingredients on the WADA banned list. Check with the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport “check your medication” resource or go directly to the Global DRO for Canada (or your country as ingredients may vary based on where the product was purchased).
