inhaled steroids to treat persistent asthma in CHILDREN
Latest asthma guidelines from the U.S. National Institutes of Health emphasize inhaled steroids to treat persistent asthma in CHILDREN.
Inhaled steroids are still underused in kids due to lingering safety concerns. But now experts know that inhaled steroids have NO significant effect on final height or bone density.
Plus inhaled steroids are MORE effective than other drugs used to control asthma...cromolyn, nedocromil, theophylline, or leukotriene receptor antagonists.
