Most Children With Asthma Suffer From Their Symptoms

Despite access to effective treatments, 80% of children with persistent asthma do not have their symptoms under control according to a new study.

The research is based on a telephone survey of nearly 1,000 parents who have children with persistent asthma.

Only about 20% of the asthma cases were found to be treated effectively.

Researchers say some kids were not taking their medications as often as necessary, while others were exposed to environmental asthma triggers, such as second-hand smoke, pet allergens and mold.
