Dietary fat and asthma

Obese asthmatics are difficult to manage, as they have worse symptoms and are not responsive to asthma medications. The consumption of high fat diets may contribute to this phenomenon. This study will identify which drugs are optimal for obese asthmatics, particularly during exercise, even if they have consumed a high fat meal. Results will be directly incorporated into disease management guidelines for patients and health professionals.
