In this entry, I would like to discuss some recent findings on the association with "rhinitis" - inflammation of the nasal passages that often causes runny nose and congestion -- and asthma. In an earlier entry, I reviewed the connection between allergies and asthma. Over 2/3 of asthmatics have allergies, which often cause symptoms in the form of hay fever. This number is even higher in kids, and many children with asthma are followed by a pediatric allergist since many of them developed allergies requiring treatment before developing asthma. But what about the other 1/3 of adults who do not have allergies, and is there a connection between having chronic nasal symptoms and asthma regardless of allergies?
Rhinitis is associated with developing asthma Many individuals have asthma and allergies, and have symptoms of both asthma and hay fever. In general, there are more people with hay fever who do not have asthma than those who do. Is there a risk of developing asthma in adulthood...

Definition Stools that float are usually due to poor absorption ( malabsorption ) of nutrients or excessive gas (flatus). Alternative Names Floating stools Considerations Floating stools are seen in a variety of different situations. Most are diet-related, or occur during a gastrointestinal infection. A change in diet can lead to an increase in the amount of gas produced by the bacteria found in the (healthy) gastrointestinal tract. Acute gastrointestinal (GI) infections also can result in increased gas in the intestines, due to rapid movement of food through the GI tract. One wrong idea is that floating stools are caused by an increase in the fat content of the stool. In fact, it is increased gas in the stool that makes it less dense and allows it to float. Increased levels of nutrients in the stool that have not been absorbed by the GI tract supply the normal bacteria that live in the gut. These bacteria, in turn, produce more gas. This results in more gas-rich stools that float. Common Cause...
