Abstract: OBJECTIVE We aimed to analyze health-related quality of life (HRQOL) in adults with newly diagnosed respiratory allergy according to the sensitization profile for relevant aeroallergens in their usual area of residence. METHODS We performed a cross-sectional, epidemiological, observational, descriptive, multicenter study in allergy clinics in Spain. The sample comprised adults diagnosed with rhinitis, asthma, or both caused by significant allergens in their residential area (olive and/or grass pollen or house dust mite). Allergic rhinitis was classified according to the Allergic Rhinitis and its Impact on Asthma guidelines; asthma was classified according to the Guía Españiola para el Manejo del Asma (Spanish Guideline on the Management of Asthma). HRQOL was studied according to the ESPRINT-15 questionnaire and Mini Asthma Quality of Life Questionnaire. Control of asthma was measured using the Asthma Control Questionnaire 5. RESULTS We studied 1437 patients. Rhinitis was the most common respiratory disease. The HRQOL of rhinitis patients was lower in those sensitized to olive pollen only and in those with combined sensitization to olive and grass pollens. HRQOL associated with rhinitis was worse in patients diagnosed with both rhinitis and asthma than in patients diagnosed with rhinitis only. Asthma patients sensitized to olive pollen or olive and grass pollens had worse HRQOL. CONCLUSIONS In our study population, the HRQOL of patients with respiratory allergies varied with the allergen responsible for symptoms. In patients with rhinitis, the presence of asthma significantly worsened rhinitis-associated HRQOL.
Resumen: Objetivo: Valorar si la afectación en la calidad de vida relacionada con la salud (CVRS) de los pacientes adultos diagnosticados por primera vez de enfermedad respiratoria alérgica se ve influida por el alérgeno causante. Método: Se realizó un estudio epidemiológico, multicéntrico, transversal, observacional y descriptivo en consultas de Alergología de España.Se incluyeron pacientes adultos diagnosticados de rinitis y/o asma alérgica causados por los alérgenos signifi cativos de su lugar de residencia (polen de olivo y/o gramíneas o ácaros del polvo doméstico). La rinitis alérgica se clasificó según los criterios de la guía ARIA y el asma según la guía GEMA. La CVRS se estudió según los cuestionarios ESPRINT-15 y miniAQLQ. El control del asma se midió utilizando el cuestionario ACQ5. Resultados: Se evaluaron un total de 1.437 pacientes. La rinitis fue la enfermedad respiratoria alérgica más común. La CVRS fue menor en pacientes monosensibilizados al polen de olivo y en los que presentaban polisensibilización a polen de olivo y gramíneas. La CVRS asociada a la rinitis fue menor en pacientes con diagnóstico de rinitis y asma, comparados con los pacientes diagnosticados solo de rinitis. Conclusiones: Los pacientes asmáticos sensibilizados al polen de olivo o a polen de gramíneas y olivo presentaban peor calidad de vida. Los pacientes alérgicos a los pólenes presentan peor calidad de vida que los pacientes alérgicos a los ácaros. La presencia de asma en pacientes con rinitis empeora la CVRS asociada a la rinitis.
