Feed of poor quality It has been linked to poor asthma management in young Puerto Ricans. As a result, researchers from the country agreed to investigate if an unhealthy diet in one or two study visits over a 5-year period was connected with asthma, severe exacerbations of the condition, and impaired lung function in young adults.

The variables of interest were whether these patients had been diagnosed with asthma, whether they had experienced one or more acute episodes in the year preceding the second visit, and the percentage change in predicted pulmonary function measures (FEV1, FVC, and FEV1/FVC) between the first and second visits.

According to the study data, a poor diet at both visits was associated with an increased risk of acquiring asthma and severe asthma exacerbations, but not with changes in lung function.

This study’s findings were reported in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology.
