Abstract Compared with the general population, justice-involved youth have substantially higher rates of several health conditions. Less is known about their use of health services to address these conditions. Using data from a statewide survey of 217 youth in juvenile correctional facilities and 164,832 youth in public schools, we examined selfreported health (health overall, weight status, disability, asthma, allergy, mental health) and receipt of care. Justice-involved youth reported a high number of physical health concerns; however, physical health conditions were not related to receipt of care. Youth who rep...

Parental stress is linked with children ’s asthma symptoms, but the independent associations of co-occurring types of stress (e.g., depression, contextual/environmental stress, discrimination) with asthma is less understood.

Atopic dermatitis (AD) patients have an increased risk of anxiety, depression, and suicide. Dupilumab is approved in certain patients with AD, asthma, and CRSwNP. This post-hoc analysis determined the effect of dupilumab on anxiety and depression in adults and adolescents with moderate-to-severe AD.

Chronic Rhinosinusitis (CRS) is one of the most common chronic conditions in North America. CRS patients suffer from discolored nasal drainage, facial pain, difficulty breathing, and decreased sense of smell1. CRS has been shown to impair quality of life (QOL), reduce productivity, and increase the risk of depression and sleep disorders.1

Atopic dermatitis (AD) impacts up to 20% of children worldwide (1;2). Children with AD experience physical discomfort, poorer quality of life (3-5), increased behavior problems (6;7), higher frequency of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) (8-11) and higher healthcare utilization (12). Parents of children with AD report decreased quality of life (13-16), negative impact on the family (14;17), increased depression and anxiety (16), and increased work absenteeism (18;19).

Purpose of review Asthma is a heterogeneous disease, usually characterized by chronic airway inflammation with a history of respiratory symptoms that vary over time and in intensity, together with variable expiratory airflow limitation. The goal of asthma treatment is to reach symptoms control, reduction in future risk and improvement in quality of life (QoL). Guideline-based pharmacologic therapies and the effect of inhaled steroids and bronchodilators have been widely studied over the past decades. We provide an overview of the available evidence on pulmonary rehabilitation as a nonpharmacologic therapy in asthmatic pa...

ConclusionsOne in four U.S. children with epilepsy has depression and/or anxiety. Therefore, physicians should consider the various factors that are related to depression and anxiety in children with epilepsy so that at-risk children can be screened and managed appropriately.

Epidemiological studies demonstrate an association between asthma and mental health disorders, although little is known about the shared genetics and causality of this association. Thus, we aimed to investigate shared genetics and the causal link between asthma and mental health disorders. We conducted a large-scale genome-wide cross-trait association study to investigate genetic overlap between asthma from the UK Biobank and eight mental health disorders from the Psychiatric Genomics Consortium: attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), anxiety disorder (ANX), autism spectrum disorder, bipolar disorder, eating diso...

I picked up particular respirator masks so that I can go outdoors again. I ’ve apparently developed asthma due to the pollution in Salt Lake Valley and the California forest fires. It’s why I’ve been so horribly sick since September. I’ve been a near complete shut-in. Alas, I overdid things yesterday. I looked like a dork in my mask, but I happily ran errands all over town. I also worked out on my treadmill, exercise bike, and did twenty minutes of aerobic activity. Unfortunately, I forgot to use both my inhaler&nebulizer. My lungs are burning again, and the cough has returned. 🙄 I feel ...
