NEW RESEARCH

Hilary Furber - Tuesday, January 12, 2016

New research project to investigate the management and treatment of hyperhidrosis

 

The emotional, psychosocial, and physical impact of hyperhidrosis is substantial and the optimal management of patients with this condition is essential. There is substantial variation in which treatments are available in the NHS and access to treatments is limited for many patients. Also, decisions about which treatments to use are often made in a context of uncertainty.

The National Institute for Health Research have provided funding to thoroughly review the evidence for the different treatments for hyperhidrosis.  A team of researchers from the University of York and Newcastle University have come together with clinicians in dermatology and surgery to carry out this research.  The focus of the project is to undertake a review of studies on all potentially useful treatments, supplemented by patients’ view regarding important treatment effects, to establish which treatments are most potentially effective and value for money to both the NHS and public. The results will help inform further research.

The research project started on December 1st 2015 and will be completed by December 2016.

We will report the progress of the project at regular intervals during the year.

Sponsored Walk for the Hyperhidrosis Support Group

Hilary Furber - Sunday, June 17, 2012

Joe and Emma's sponsored Walk the Wall event on Saturday 30th June raised the stupendous total of £530 (so far) for the Support Group, a fantastic result!! Thank you Joe and Emma - this will help us reach out to more Hyperhidrosis sufferers who are struggling alone out there to manage their condition and find a reputable and knowledgeable source of information and help. 

 Joe & Emma walked from Benfleet train station, along Canvey island sea wall to Thorney Bay - a challenging 16-mile walk, made dramatically more challenging by Joe's promise to do the walk wearing high heel shoes if £500 sponsorship was promised - and it was!!

 

 This is the link to their charity giving page, so if you'd like to recognise their sterling effort by making a donation (however small - every little helps), we'd be most grateful click here

 Joe suffered no ill effects aside from being red from sunburn - at least, he says that's what it was!

 Thank you so much Joe and Emma for choosing the Hyperhidrosis Support Group to benefit from your sponsored Walk, and also a very big thank you to everyone who generously sponsored them.
