Asthma Developing in Adults
Scientific Questions Being Studied
Are there any shared behaviors to adults who develop asthma in adulthood as opposed to developing it as a child? Do adults who develop asthma in adulthood have other medical conditions or behavior in common? Do certain habits lead to developing asthma in adulthood, especially if there is a history of illness, such as bronchitis, throughout early life?
- Disease Focused Research (asthma)
- Population Health
- Social / Behavioral
I will use longitudinal surveys as well as EHR data for this study. This work will look at patients' behaviors through their survey answers and look at conditions they develop as adults through their EHR data.
This study is exploratory, but I anticipate there are correlating behaviors for many of the populations being studied such as any changes to their diet and exercise habits over the years. I anticipate seeing the decrease of exercise can lead to the increase chances of developing asthma, especially if there is a history of lung-related illnesses such as bronchitis.
Demographic Categories of Interest
This study will not center on underrepresented populations.
