"Sensitivity to household chemicals, perfumes, and air pollution often go undetected, but now there's a way for patients, especially those with mysterious medical symptoms, to discover if they are sensitive to certain chemicals. The QEESI, or Quick Environmental Exposure and Sensitivity Inventory, is now available online. This 15-minute questionnaire developed by San Antonio researcher Dr. Claudia Miller, allows individuals to rate their reactions to things like car exhaust, nail polish, paints, and pesticides. Dr. Claudia Miller developed the Quick Environmental Exposure and Sensitivity Inventory to help doctors and patients pinpoint chemical sensitivities that may be causing health problems. Dr. Miller, a researcher at the UT Health Science Center at San Antonio and professor at the University of Texas School of Medicine, developed the test because chemical sensitivities are common in an estimated 20 percent of chronically-ill patients, but are rarely diagnosed by physicians. The QEESI delivers an evaluation that can help doctors determine if their patients' illnesses stem from chemical intolerances."
