By Sandee LaMotte, CNN (CNN) — A new analysis of national data published Wednesday finds 98% of toddlers and two-thirds of infants consume added sugars in their diets each day. The American Heart Association recommends children less than two years of age not have access to any added sugars, which includes any sweeteners that don’t naturally occur in food. “The consumption of added sugars among children has been associated with negative health conditions such as cavities, asthma, obesity, elevated blood pressure, and altered lipid profiles,” said lead investigator Kirsten Herrick, a program dire...

Publication date: Available online 11 November 2019Source: The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology: In PracticeAuthor(s): Marcello Cottini, Anita Licini, Carlo Lombardi, Alvise BertiAbstractBackgroundThe involvement of small airways has recently gained greater recognition in asthma. Impulse oscillometry (IOS) is a simple and noninvasive method based on the forced oscillation technique, for the detection of small airway dysfunction (SAD).ObjectiveWe aimed to identify the predictors of SAD in an unselected sample of 400 patients with physician-diagnosed asthma.MethodsAll patients underwent standard spirometry and IOS ...

In conclusion, childhood asthma drives an increase in the onset of obesity among school children, while the onset of obesity does not necessarily imply the future onset of asthma at least in the short term. PMID: 31712801 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS AND IMPLICATIONS FOR PUBLIC HEALTH PRACTICE: Efforts that prevent adverse childhood experiences could also potentially prevent adult chronic conditions, depression, health risk behaviors, and negative socioeconomic outcomes. States can use comprehensive public health approaches derived from the best available evidence to prevent childhood adversity before it begins. By creating the conditions for healthy communities and focusing on primary prevention, it is possible to reduce risk for adverse childhood experiences while also mitigating consequences for those already affected by these experiences. PMID: 316...

CA Abstract Asthma is a chronic airway disease, which affects more than 300 million people. The pathogenesis of asthma exhibits marked heterogeneity with many phenotypes defining visible characteristics and endotypes defining molecular mechanisms. With the evolution of novel biological therapies, patients, who do not-respond to conventional asthma therapy require novel biologic medications, such as anti-IgE, anti-IL-5 and anti-IL4/IL13 to control asthma symptoms. It is increasingly important for physicians to understand immunopathology of asthma and to characterize asthma phenotypes. Asthma is associated with imm...

The actuality of asthma (A) and co-morbid obesity (Ob) does not cause doubt in internal medicine. A phenotype based approach to treatment of A draws the growing attention of experts worldwide. Nowadays underway active search for connections between phenotype, disease development mechanism, concomitant common pathology include pulmonary-renal and metabolic disorders.
