Online weight loss intervention improves asthma control

Online weight loss intervention for people with obesity and asthma significantly improved asthma control and quality of life, showed recent research carried out by Olivia Johnson, MS, RDN, a research specialist at Larner College of Medicine in Burlington, Vermont, and colleagues. The findings of the study, published in the the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology: In practice, pointed out that 10 participants of the study achieved at least 5 percent weight loss by the end of the study. The team said that they had initially recruited 43 participants from specialty clinics at University of Vermont and University of Arizona and that the participants who lost at least 5 percent of their weight experienced clinically and statistically significant improvements in asthma control, in addition to significant improvements in asthma quality of life and health-related quality of life, with numeric improvements in Asthma Symptom Utility Index scores.
