ASTHMA, ALLERGIES & KIDS
Watery eyes, runny noses and inflamed sinuses got your family inside during the summer? Does your family go out to eat, on playdates or to birthday parties with an EpiPen at the ready? And is asthma management a major concern in your home? Dr. Thad Woodard of KSKA’s Line One, and pediatric asthma and allergy specialist at Alaska Center for Pediatrics, is our guest on our this show. He walks us through the basics – how allergies are diagnosed, what happens during testing, why allergies occur and how to manage allergies at home.
Also this hour - Asthma camps are fun for kids and provide parents back home with a break from everyday worry; a new study asks if Vitamin D can help treat asthma; and a delicious allergy-safe recipe for a summer treat from one local mom in the know.
