Thanks to Paul Kamudoni for letting me know about work being done at the Welsh school of pharmacy, Cardiff University, to develop a patient-centred instrument (measure) for assessing the quality of life of hyperhidrosis patients. He commented on an earlier post, and I have copied his note to make sure it gets some notice:
An online focus group discussion will be conducted to discuss the impact of hyperhidrosis on everyday life of patients.
If you are interested in sharing your experiences please contact Paul Kamudoni using the following address KamudoniP@cardiff.ac.uk
Thanks again, Paul. I would like to participate if it is not too late. For those of you on the fence, this type of research is important in convincing insurance companies to cover hyperhidrosis treatments. In addition, this kind of assessment is needed so that health professionals can take the problem more seriously. Because wiping your wet palms on your pants is NOT treatment. Hyperhidrosis affects the quality of our lives.
