Pollen counts are updated daily from February 15 to November 15.
September 5, 2012 — Charlotte, NC — Just in time for the fall allergy season, Carolina Asthma & Allergy Center has relaunched its improved, proprietary pollen counter. The practice gathers data from the counter daily, posting it to the Carolina Asthma & Allergy Center website, www.carolinaasthma.com.
Carolina Asthma & Allergy Center is one of the largest asthma and allergy physicians group in the U.S., with 11 board-certified physicians practicing in eight offices in the greater Charlotte metro.
“We’ve been the exclusive provider of this data for many years. This summer, we upgraded our pollen counter and data recorder. In addition, we’ve launched a new website where local allergy and asthma sufferers can receive daily updates on specific tree, grass, weed and mold levels,” says John T. Klimas, M.D., Carolina Asthma & Allergy Center.
Throughout the fall and spring pollen seasons, individuals who suffer from allergies experience changing sensitivities to specific pollens, depending on their specifically diagnosed allergic conditions. The Carolina Asthma & Allergy Center pollen counter offers daily insight into overall pollen conditions as well as counts for specific pollens. An individual who has been properly and completely diagnosed will know the specific pollens to watch for during peak season.
Carolina Asthma & Allergy Center operates the only daily pollen counter in central and eastern North Carolina recognized by the American Academy of Allergy Asthma & Immunology.
Along with the pollen and mold data, the board-certified physicians at Carolina Asthma & Allergy Center will be providing weekly forecasts and updates on the website during both pollen seasons. The group also will work with selected local media outlets to provide this information to the Charlotte metro area. For more information, go to www.carolinaasthma.com.
