Wheezing can be caused by respiratory problems, such as asthma, allergies, and colds. A person can stop or manage wheezing at home without an inhaler by using different natural remedies and medications. In this article, learn more about the causes of wheezing in adults and babies, and home treatments for wheezing.
Dr Weinberger disagrees with my assertion that large studies1 –5 demonstrating the safety of combination inhaled glucocorticoid (IGC) and long-acting–agonist (LABA) therapy are compelling because they did not include patients with life-threatening asthma. Dr Weinberger describes a case report he published in 2006 of 2 children with poorly controlled asthma despite high-dose IGC and LABA combination therapy who developed life-threatening episodes of bronchospasm after exercise that were not prevented by albuterol pretreatment.
Spahn1 describes the long and winding road related to the controversies of the inhaled corticosteroid (IC) LABA combination. He states that the large studies demonstrating the safety of the combination are compelling.2 –4 However, because those studies specifically excluded patients with previous life-threatening reactions, I want to draw attention to the observations my colleague and I previously reported in 2 boys, aged 10 and 15 years, with a previous history of life-threatening asthmatic exacerbations while receiving a LABA with an IC.

In conclusion, individual fungal sensitization rate was higher in asthmatics compared to non-asthmatics. Extract-based tests, especially SPTs, were most sensitive, but component-based tests covered 80% of extract-based serological sensitization to Alternaria and Aspergillus.

Millions of Americans suffer from respiratory diseases, including Asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Together, these two diseases affect the day-to-day lives of over 40 million patients in the U.S. Furthermore, respiratory allergies affect 10 percent of children under the age of 18.
