Atopic Dermatitis In America

New Health Union survey data helps the healthcare industry better understand and reach people living with atopic dermatitis

For the fourth year in a row, Health Union has gathered patient-reported data from hundreds of real people impacted by atopic dermatitis. The fourth annual Atopic Dermatitis In America survey quantifies the true impact of this condition among patients – going beyond basic demographics and symptoms to establish a deep understanding of the holistic patient journey for those affected and to track trends over time.

The new data from the fourth annual Atopic Dermatitis In America survey reveals deep insights of a population of 408 diagnosed respondents, 46% of which feel like other people do not understand their sensitivities/triggers. Flare triggers vary from person to person–and the survey finds 54% knew some of their triggers, but 5% said they knew all of their triggers.

Even with trigger awareness, people find managing their atopic dermatitis is a challenge:

“I have too many food triggers to avoid them all, and not enough time to meal prep all of the time.” – Survey respondent living with atopic dermatitis

“I have suffered horribly from this condition for my entire adult life. I had patch testing done and identified several categories as allergens. Strict avoidance of these substances has changed my life. The downside is that it is very difficult to avoid all these substances.” – Survey respondent living with atopic dermatitis

This access to a broad base of knowledge, facts and data gleaned from Health Union’s open online health communities like AtopicDermatitis.net, and syndicated research allows the healthcare industry to harness the power of Health Union’s continuous immersion in the patient experience to deliver smarter insights and implications–so you can spend your time developing the strategies that will make a difference.
