HCM CITY (VNS) — Free health checks and consultancy will be given to 150 people who are suffering from allergic rhinitis and systemic lupus erythematosus (lupus) or feel they are susceptible to the two conditions.

The health service will be offered on November 3 by the HCM City University Medical Centre.

Allergic rhinitis, a very common condition in Viet Nam, is not usually harmful but it can be irritating and affect the quality of life, according to doctors at the hospital.

Studies estimate that around 20 per cent of population experience allergic rhinitis, they said.

Lupus, also a common condition in Viet Nam, is a lifelong and can become severe, causing problems with the heart, lungs, kidneys, nervous system or blood cells.
