Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America Announces 2019 Asthma Capitals

Oklahoma City, Tulsa Ranked in Top 40

WASHINGTON, DC - May 7, 2019 – Today, on World Asthma Day, the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA), a leading patient advocacy organization in the United States representing more than 60 million Americans with asthma or allergies, released its 2019 Asthma Capitals™ report. The report identifies the 100 most challenging places to live with asthma in the U.S. The top 10 Asthma Capitals for 2019 are: 1. Springfield, MA 2. Dayton, OH 3. Greensboro, NC 4. Philadelphia, PA 5. Cleveland, OH 6. Allentown, PA 7. Louisville, KY 8. Boston, MA 9. Omaha, NE 10. Milwaukee, WI. Oklahoma City and Tulsa were ranked 32nd and 37th, respectively.

Oklahoma Allergy & Asthma Clinic Board-Certified Allergist Dr. Gregory Metz said, “more than 26 million people in the United States have asthma and many have symptoms that are not adequately controlled. Breathing is essential to life’s most basic function and is not something anyone with asthma can take for granted. Untreated asthma can lead to lung damage so it is essential to be correctly diagnosed and treated.”

Many factors come together to increase the risk for someone to be diagnosed with asthma. Genetics, respiratory infections, tobacco smoke and more all play a part. But can location increase the risk? Cities were ranked based on asthma-related health outcomes: prevalence, emergency room visits and mortality. The report also looked at risk factors that contribute to these outcomes, including poverty, air quality, and access to specialists, pollen counts, medicine use, tobacco policies and the rate of uninsured residents. Factors such as gender, race/ethnicity and socioeconomic status are associated with asthma, with the disease being more common in boys than girls in childhood. In adulthood, it reverses and more women than men have asthma. About 20.3 million adults currently have asthma. Adults are nearly five times more likely to die from asthma than children.

Asthma symptoms include asthma symptoms including coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath and chest tightness. When severe, it can lead to confusion and dizziness.

“With about 7 million children who have asthma, it is a leading cause for children missing school which amounts to more than 13.8 million school days,” said Dr. Metz.

A board-certified allergist can diagnose asthma, and determine the specific triggers that causes an episode through simple tests. The allergists at OAAC evaluate and manage patients of all ages.  The main clinic is on the Oklahoma Health Center campus.  For patient convenience, satellite offices are located in Edmond, Norman, Midwest City and northwest Oklahoma City. A new clinic is under construction in Yukon.

When are allergies serious enough to seek medical help?

Allergies are extremely common and affect millions of Americans.  Symptoms range from a stuffy nose and occasional sneeze to severe allergic reactions.  Allergies are also a common trigger for asthma attacks.  Patients with asthma experience chest tightness, shortness of breath, wheezing and coughing.  Common substances that cause allergic symptoms include pollen (grass, tree and weeds), mold spores, dust mites, feathers and animal dander.  If allergies are causing you discomfort or impairing your ability to work, play or enjoy life, come visit us to see how we can help.
