Mini Review - Asthma and Food Allergy.
Curr Pediatr Rev 2018; 14(3):164-170CP

Abstract

BACKGROUND

It is well known that there is a common interplay between atopic conditions and that having one atopic condition can predispose to the development of others. The link between asthma and food allergy has been well researched over the years; although the exact interplay between the two atopic conditions is yet to be fully described. Research suggests that children who have both asthma and food allergy are at greater risk of more severe asthmatic episodes.

CONCLUSION

They are also at risk of food allergen triggered asthmatic episodes as well as foodallergen induced anaphylaxis. Therefore, it is important for clinicians to understand and recognise the association between these two atopic conditions to provide children and their families with the correct treatment and management to avoid potentially life-threatening events related to their disease.
