Do asthma and exercise go together? Yes. Here’s how… jaypoct/ 2429061604/ jaypoct/ 2429061604/

Asthma affects 300 million people worldwide.   Research pooled nearly 700 patients and found that physical training lasting for at least 20 to 30 minutes, two to three times a week, for at least six weeks improves physical fitness in patients with asthma.  This physical training did not worsen asthma symptoms and it significantly improved health-related quality of life.

If you have asthma, make sure that your symptoms well controlled before you start exercising.  The goal of asthma treatment/medication is so that you live your life to the fullest!
