Allergic diseases at age 4 predict increased risk for developing internalizing behaviors at age 7

January 13, 2016

Young patients with allergic diseases such as allergic rhinitis and allergic persistent wheezing are significantly more likely to develop internalizing behaviors by age 7, according to recent research published in Pediatrics.

“The finding of a significant association between early childhood allergic rhinitis, allergic persistent wheezing, and the increasing number of allergic diseases with internalizing behaviors at age 7 years has substantial clinical implications,” Maya K. Nanda, MD, MSc, from the division of asthma, allergy, and immunology at the Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, Mo., and colleagues wrote. “Physicians who care for high-risk children, especially those born to allergic parents, should be aware of the two- to fourfold increased risk of developing internalizing behaviors, especially in children with multiple allergic diseases.”
