    Data from the National Health Interview Survey showed adults with a history of allergic disease had a higher risk of high blood pressure and coronary heart disease, with black men at the highest risk
    .
    The study will be presented at the ACC Asia 2022 Joint Korean Society of Cardiology Spring Meeting on April 15-16, 2022

    .

    "For patients with allergic diseases, clinicians should conduct routine blood pressure assessments and routine examinations for coronary heart disease to ensure that patients with hypertension or coronary heart disease receive early treatment
    .
    " The study's first author, Peking University Shenzhen Hospital Dermatology said Dr.
    Yang Guo, Department of Dermatology, Peking University-Hong Kong University of Science and Technology Medical Center, Shenzhen, China

    .

    Guo said previous studies have reported a link between allergic disease and cardiovascular disease, but the findings remain controversial
    .
    The current study aimed to determine whether adults with allergic diseases have an increased risk of cardiovascular disease

    .

    The study used data from the 2012 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), a cross-sectional survey of the U.
    S.
    population

    .
    The allergic group included adults with at least one allergic disorder, including asthma, respiratory allergies, digestive allergies, skin allergies, and other allergies

    .
    Overall, the study included 34,417 adults, more than half of whom were women, with an average age of 48.
    5 years

    .
    The allergy group included 10,045 adults

    .
    The researchers adjusted for age, sex, race, smoking, alcohol use, and body mass index; they also examined subgroups stratified by demographic factors

    .

    The researchers found that a history of allergic disease was associated with an increased risk of high blood pressure and coronary heart disease
    .
    In a further analysis, people between the ages of 18 and 57 with a history of allergic disease had a higher risk of developing high blood pressure

    .
    Among study participants aged 39-57, men and Black/African Americans had a higher risk of coronary heart disease

    .
    Asthma is a major cause of hypertension and coronary heart disease

    .

    "Further large cohort studies with long-term follow-up are needed to confirm our findings," said Professor Guo
    .
    "Furthermore, understanding the underlying mechanisms may help in the future management of these individuals
