Asthma control changes over time and many factors contribute to this variability. Environmental exposures such as seasonal allergen fluctuations, second-hand tobacco exposure, and viral upper respiratory tract infections (RTI) are just a few of the known triggers of lability 1. In addition, host factors such as inhaler technique and co-morbid conditions including atopic diseases, obesity, and acid reflux can also contribute to this changeability. During times of lability, overzealous intervention can lead to overuse of oral corticosteroids (OCS) and healthcare visits, while delayed treatment can lead to severe exacerbation...

If you’ve been diagnosed with kidney stones (urolithiasis), you may have several options for treatment. These include medical therapy, extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL), percutaneous nephrolithotripsy (PCNL), and ureteroscopy. A brief anatomy of the urinary tract The urinary tract includes kidneys (two organs that filter waste and extra water from the blood) ureters (two tubes bringing urine from each kidney to the bladder) bladder (organ that collects urine) urethra (a single tube through which urine in the bladder passes out of the body). The evaluation for kidney stones If your symptoms suggest kidney...

Conclusions. Anaphylaxis is a life-threatening condition that requires early recognition. Although most patients received adrenaline, administration was not always performed by the recommended route and only a few patients were prescribed adrenaline auto-injector.

ConclusionsThe benefits of FENO -based management are attenuated among obese mothers and those with excess GWG, indicating the importance of weight management in contributing to improved asthma management in pregnancy.

Asthma incidence and severity are increased in obese populations. Systematic reviews have shown benefit from weight-loss interventions on asthma outcomes, but the role of bariatric surgery is still unclear. In this review, cohorts of obese asthmatic patients undergoing bariatric surgery were examined regarding different asthma outcomes. The available data on patients who were followed up showed improvements in asthma control, exacerbation risk, asthma-related hospitalisation, medication use and airway hyperresponsiveness, with some patients not requiring further treatment for asthma. Follow-up duration was variable, being ...

The relationship between prediabetes and diabetes, metabolic conditions more common in obesity, and asthma outcomes is not well characterized.ObjectiveWe sought to determine the association between prediabetes/diabetes and asthma exacerbations in an obese asthma cohort.MethodsA retrospective cohort of US obe...

ConclusionsPoorly controlled asthma is more frequent among publicly versus privately insured pregnancies in the United States. Dispensing of long-term controller medications during pregnancy remains low, even for symptomatic patients.

PearceAbstractStudies from single countries suggest that local labour market conditions, including rates of employment, tend to be associated with the health of the populations residing in those areas, even after adjustment for individual characteristics including employment status. The aim of this study is to strengthen the cross-national evidence base on the influence of regional employment levels and individual worklessness on health during the period of the Great R...
