Asthma comorbidities and making progress with food allergy

Asthma comorbidities and making progress with food allergy
Asthma comorbidities and making progress with food allergy
Asthma is a challenging long‐term condition for patients, even more so when they have coexisting conditions. In this month's issue of the Journal, Weatherburn et al aim to assess the prevalence of coexisting physical and mental health problems in adults with asthma. They used a United Kingdom primary care records data set.1 Records for over a million adults were analysed with adjustments being made for age, sex, social deprivation and smoking status. Almost all the 39 coexisting conditions assessed were more common in adults with asthma. The majority had at least one coexisting problem. Hypertension, pain, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, depression and dyspepsia were the commonest, all seen significantly more frequently in adults with asthma. Given that most of these will directly impact on a patient's quality of life, we need to be aware of these co‐existing issues and ensure that patients have a holistic management plan that deals with the breadth of their illnesses.

Abstract

Asthma is a challenging long‐term condition for patients, even more so when they have coexisting conditions. In this month's issue of the Journal, Weatherburn et al aim to assess the prevalence of coexisting physical and mental health problems in adults with asthma. They used a United Kingdom primary care records data set.1 Records for over a million adults were analysed with adjustments being made for age, sex, social deprivation and smoking status. Almost all the 39 coexisting conditions assessed were more common in adults with asthma. The majority had at least one coexisting problem. Hypertension, pain, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, depression and dyspepsia were the commonest, all seen significantly more frequently in adults with asthma. Given that most of these will directly impact on a patient's quality of life, we need to be aware of these co‐existing issues and ensure that patients have a holistic management plan that deals with the breadth of their illnesses.
