Asthma! A new warning for heart disease

American Heart Association's 41st Annual Conference on Cardiovascular Disease Epidemiology and Prevention in San Antonio, Texas, has unveiled a new cousin counterpart to heart disease-Asthma. It is found that asthma increases the risk of heart disease.

Carlos Iribarren, MD, MPH, PhD, of Kaiser Permanente, in his study found that non smoking patients with asthma had a risk of 33% towards developing the heart disease than nonsmoking patients without asthma. Therefore emphasis has been made on managing cardiovascular risk factors such as blood cholesterol, blood pressure, and blood sugar in the patients who present to the doctors with asthma. Though the earlier studies had shown increased cardiovascular mortality among patients with asthma, the new study reveals that the connection - and the risks - appear to be there even for nonsmokers. This particular research was prompted by the increasing realisation of the fact that heart disease is an inflammatory process, and since asthma is an inflammatory disease as well, it would be interesting to find if asthma patients had an increased risk of heart disease. The reason to study nonsmokers is to rule out the strong influence of smoking on both asthma and heart disease," says Dr. Iribarren.
