Systemic Activity of Inhaled Steroids in 1-3-Year-Olds with Asthma
It should not be any great surprise that inhaled medications make it into the systemic circulation and have side effects distant from the treatment site. Asthma is a condition that I feel is poorly managed and lifestyle changes are rarely recommended to safely affect the course of the disease. Avoiding asthma in the first place involves maintenance of healthy intestinal flora, avoidance of antibiotics taking a rational approach to vaccination. Managing asthma takes these factors into consideration as well as eating a more unprocessed diet.
