Cockroach and mouse allergies were most often associated with poorly controlled asthma and exacerbations in urban adolescents.
Total omega-3 and omega-6 plasma polyunsaturated fatty acids relative abundances were significantly inversely correlated with asthma/recurrent wheeze and allergic sensitization.
Although allergic sensitization and hay fever rates increased as children grew older, the rates of asthma dropped.
The new ICD-10 coding system may seem inappropriate for some disease models, but asthma care may benefit from the required changes.
The SYGMA trials assessed the use of an as-needed combined corticosteroid/beta-agonist inhaler in patients with mild asthma.
Poor control of asthma and obstructive sleep apnea can feed off one another, according to Michelle Zeidler, MD, pulmonologist at the University of California, Los Angeles, and director of the UCLA Sleep Fellowship Program.
