Food allergies and asthma.

Abstract

PURPOSE OF REVIEW

To consider the possible links between food allergy and asthma.

RECENT FINDINGS

Food allergy and asthma coexist in many children, and recent studies demonstrate that having these comorbid conditions increases the risk for morbidity. Children with food allergies and asthma are more likely to have near-fatal or fatal allergic reactions to food and more likely to have severe asthma.

SUMMARY

Although a causal link has not been determined, increased awareness of the heightened risks of having both of these common childhood conditions and good patient/parent education and management of both conditions can lead to improved outcomes.
