Asthma and Allergic Rhinitis Linked to Alarming Cardiovascular Risks in Two-Decade Study

9 Feb 2024 • In a large study utilizing two decades of national data encompassing 603,140 adults, a study determined that asthma and allergic rhinitis were associated with an increased risk of several cardiovascular outcomes such as angina, coronary heart disease (CHD), and heart-attacks.


  • Individuals with a history of asthma faced a 36% higher risk of CHD (OR=1.36), while recent asthma attacks spiked this risk to 66% (OR=1.66).
  • Strikingly, those experiencing a past-year asthma attack exhibited a staggering 142% (OR=2.42) increased odds of angina.
  • Allergic rhinitis independently raised the risk of CHD by 25% (OR=1.25).
