RATIONALE: Psychological factors, such as depression and anxiety, are increasingly being recognized for their influence on the course of asthma. We investigated the association between anxiety, depression and the level of asthma control evaluated by asthma control test (ACT).
METHODS: Demographic data, anxiety and depression scores as well as the level of asthma control were collected from 120 asthma patients. Patient-reported depressive symptoms, anxiety were evaluated using Beck Depression Inventory (BDI), the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI).
RESULTS: A total of 81 patients with controlled asthma and 39 with uncontrolled asthma patients were included. The prevalence of depression was lower in the controlled group than the uncontrolled group (p = 0.024), and the asthma related quality of life was higher in the controlled group compared to the uncontrolled group (p < 0.001). Severe asthma, higher STAI-X-2 score and lower asthma related quality of life were associated with depression in asthma patients (p = 0.004, p < 0.001 and p = 0.002, respectively).
CONCLUSIONS: Psychological factors such as anxiety and depression are strongly associated with the level of asthma control.

Penderita alergi paling sering terkena gangguan justru mudah terserang infeksi virus karena daya tahan tubuhnya menurun. Justru saat terkena infeksi virus inilah banyak tanda dan gejala alergi semakin berat dan meningkat seperti asma, biduran, dermatitis atopi, nyeri perut, GERD (muntah) dsbnya. Jadi lingkaran setan terjadi saat alergi tidak terkendali menyebabkan sering terjadi infeksi virus, saat terjadi infeksi virus memperberat reaksi alergi. Widodo Judarwanto
