Core Tip A cross-sectional study was conducted to assess the association between asthma and functional abdominal pain disorders (FAPDs) in teenagers. We observed a strong, independent association between asthma and three types of FAPDs, namely, func­tional abdominal pain, functional dyspepsia, and abdominal migraine, indicating possibility of common underlying pathophysiology. However, no association was observed with irritable bowel syndrome. Most upper gastrointestinal symptoms were more common among asthmatics than in non-asthmatics, but lower gastrointestinal disorders showed no difference. Health related quality of life was significantly decreased in both asthma and FAPDs, indicating the significant impact of both disorders.
