The Dynamic Relationship between Asthma and Obesity in School Children.

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: Sedentary lifestyle is seemingly the only EBRB correlated with being overweight. Physical activity programs for children may help prevent and treat overweight or obesity in Asian CCHD, similar to Western countries. PMID: 32221146 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract Lipids and their mediators are known to play a pro-inflammatory role in several human diseases including asthma. The influence of leukotrienes and prostaglandins through arachidonate metabolism in asthma pathophysiology is well established and hence, prompted the way for therapeutic strategies targeting lipid metabolites. In addition, various types of fatty acids have been reported to play a diverse role in asthma. For instance, CD4+ T-lymphocytes differentiation towards T-effector (Teff) or T-regulatory (Tregs) cells seems to be controlled reciprocally by fatty acid metabolic pathways. Further, the dysre...

This study modeled the pathways in the association of lifetime overweight with asthma in adult life, using data from the 1978/1979 Birth Cohort, Ribeirão Preto, São Paulo, Brazil (n = 2,063) at birth (baseline), school age (9/11 years) and adult age (23/25 years). A theoretical model was proposed to explore the effects of lifetime overweight on asthma in adult life analyzed by structural equation modeling. Parental obesity (SC - standardized coefficenttotal = 0.211, p

Obese urban students with asthma appear more susceptible to the effects of classroom indoor NO2 exposure. Obese BMI status and the school environment should be taken into consideration when assessing childhood asthma risk factors.

AbstractThe prevalence of both Obesity and Asthma is increasing worldwide. Various epidemiological data has linked obesity with the development and severity of asthma in children. The aim of this study was to assess if any relationship exists between obesity and asthma in children. The study population included school children aged 5 to 18  years. A total of 320 asthma cases and 300 controls were included in our study. Association analysis of obesity and asthma based on epidemiological basis was measured. Out of 320 cases, 61 children were found to have moderate persistent asthma. Out of 61 moderate persistent asthma ...

Authors: Ahmadian M, Dabidi Roshan V, Rezvan K, Leicht AS Abstract BACKGROUND: Asthma and obesity are becoming increasingly common among children. Such conditions are known to negatively affect both cardiac autonomic function and oxidative stress. We therefore investigated the heart rate variability (HRV) and oxidative (malondialdehyde, MDA) response to exercise within a high humidity environment (~65%) in obese and lightweight asthmatic children. METHODS: Forty-two children participated in this study and were categorized into four groups: obese asthmatic (OA, n = 10), obese non-asthmatic (ONA, n = 15), lightwe...

Chronic illnesses have been associated with poor mental health and depression. Given the fact that a large number of adolescents are suffering from chronic illnesses in South Korea, it is important to identify factors that contribute to depression in this population so that appropriate interventions can be developed. In order to achieve this aim, a large-scale, nationwide, cross-sectional study was performed. The study used data obtained from the 2016 Korean Children and Youth Panel Survey which included first-year high school students diagnosed with one or more of the following chronic illnesses: asthma, allergic rhinitis...
