Abstract

We examined 4388 children from the 2003 to 2006 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey and used survey-design-Adjusted multivariable logistic regression to evaluate associations between dietary advanced glycation end product (AGE) and meat consumption frequencies and respiratory symptoms. Higher AGE intake was significantly associated with increased odds of wheezing (adjusted OR 1.18; 95% CI 1.02 to 1.36), wheeze-disrupted sleep (1.26; 95% CI 1.05 to 1.51) and exercise (1.34; 95% CI 1.08 to 1.67) and wheezing requiring prescription medication (1.35; 95% CI 1.13 to 1.63). Higher intake of non-seafood meats was associated with wheeze-disrupted sleep (2.32; 95% CI 1.11 to 4.82) and wheezing requiring prescription medication (2.23; 95% CI 1.10 to 4.54).
