Mum’s asthma puts baby’s health at risk

HT Ludhiana Live - - Front Page -

mother's asthma dur­ing preg­nancy raises the risk of a wide range of child­hood dis­eases for her baby, re­ports a study from Den­mark. More than the mother's his­tory of asthma, the risk was as­so­ci­ated with her ex­pe­ri­enc­ing an asthma at­tack dur­ing her preg­nancy. Asthma dur­ing preg­nancy is linked to foetal un­der-de­vel­op­ment and dis­eases in the off­spring, like in­creased risk of in­fec­tion, par­a­sitic ill­ness, ner­vous and res­pi­ra­tory sys­tem com­pli­ca­tions and ear and skin dis­eases.

Re­searchers rec­om­mend height­ened scru­tiny of asthma sta­tus dur­ing preg­nancy, and in­creased ef­forts to bet­ter con­trol con­di­tion.
