In recent decades, there has been an increase in the prevalence of asthma and obesity in pediatric age. In this regard several studies have provided controversial data to demonstrate the link between Body Mass Index (BMI) and asthma, both in adults and in children. In this prospective study we evaluated the relationship between body mass index value, total IgE immunoglobulin E levels, skin prick test (SPT) sensitization and lung function in children affected by asthma. According to the analysis… CONTINUE READING
