I’m Taylor Ellis with today’s health news. A new study form the University of Edinburgh
suggests that ingesting heartburn pills during pregnancy may be linked to a greater risk
of developing childhood asthma. Researches reviewed 8 previous studies comprised
of more than 1.3 million children. They found that children born to mothers who
had been prescribed acid-blocking drugs during pregnancy were a third more likely to have
visited a doctor with asthma symptoms. Heartburn occurs when stomach acid passes
from the stomach back into the esophagus, and can be more common during pregnancy because
of hormonal changes and pressure on the stomach from the growing womb. According to Dr Samantha Walker, Director
of Policy and Research at Asthma UK, “It is important to stress that this research is
at a very early stage and expectant [mothers] should continue to take any medication they
need under the guidance of their doctor or nurse.” For dailyRx I’m Taylor Ellis.
