Asthma and Food Allergy Diagnosis, Treatment, Prevention (Video and Resources)Featured Content

Kids With Food Allergies (KFA) hosted a free educational webinar on October 17, 2013 featuring guest speaker David Stukus, Director of the Specialty Asthma Clinic, Nationwide Children's Hospital, and a member of KFA's Medical Advisory Team. Dr. Stukus reviewed the signs and symptoms of asthma and food allergy, the risks associated when a patient has both diseases, and how to determine if symptoms are asthma or anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction).

An attendee gave this review of our asthma webinar: 

"Learning that epinephrine will help with asthma/lung function during anaphylaxis was very helpful to know. A very big THANK YOU for all that you do at KFA and for offering these informative, life-saving webinars."


The following is the video recording of the webinar and a list of resources to accompany the presentation. 

Asthma is the most common chronic childhood illness and is much more prevalent in allergic children, including those with food allergies. The presenting signs and symptoms, triggers, and treatment of asthma will all be reviewed. The specific association of asthma in regards to food allergy reactions and management will be highlighted as well.
