How does obesity affect the progression of asthma? Asthmatics who are also diagnosed with obesity are in a unique situation that poses a different set of risks.
The common belief is that obesity increases asthma risk in children, but it may be the other way around: Cildren with asthma may have a higher obesity risk.
Asthma doesn't always respond to conventional therapies. Should it be treated as severe asthma or could it be caused by something else?
Research shows that the severity of asthma, including hospitalizations and mortality, are higher for women than men.
