Inhaled Steroids may not prove effective for every asthmatic childAccording to a study that was presented at the American Thoracic Society, there may be occasions when some children may find it difficult to control asthma when they are administered with inhaled corticosteroids, one of the most popular forms of asthma treatment.

The study was quick to highlight that some children may be genetically less responsive to steroids, a fact that was brought into notice by Gregory Sawicki, M.D. of Children’s Hospital in Boston.

Dr. Sawicki went on to remark that it had already been communicated in the past that even an extensive use of inhaled steroids may not prove its worth for well-controlled asthma in every adult asthmatic patient. This study is believed to provide a new direction to doctors who have been findings ways to control asthma in their patients with little or no success.
