Asthma control in adolescents is linked to health literacy (HL) level, according to a study published in the Journal of Asthma. Sukry Cekic, MD, and colleagues assessed the association among 81 adolescents with asthma and 47 age and sex-matched controls using the European Health Literacy Survey Questionnaire (HLSEU-Q16). To determine the degree of asthma control, they also used the Asthma Control Test (ACT). They observed no considerable difference between the adolescents with asthma (N=45, 55.6%) and controls (N=28, 59.6%). Among those with asthma, the overall median HL score was notably higher in patients with controlled disease than in those with uncontrolled disease (P=0.037), according to ACT scores. A difference in the distribution of controlled asthma, uncontrolled asthma, and controls in HL subgroups was noted (poor, problematic limited, sufficient, and perfect HL, respectively) (P=0.002).
