It’s becoming increasingly evident that vaping can cause lifelong harm to your child. Every day, there are more and more cases of vaping-related lung disease. We are unsure what is causing it, but it is leaving a wake of devastated lungs. Children with vaping-related lung disease are often diagnosed with “lipoid pneumonia.” This is a condition where oily chemicals are vaporized into the lungs and cause a severe inflammatory reaction. This inflammation leads to permanent lung scarring similar to lifelong smokers or coal workers.
Please have a discussion with your child about the dangers of vaping before it is too late. Please call Brighton Pediatrics if you have questions or would like to make an appointment to discuss this further.
