NEW YORK (AP) — A new study suggests exercise induced chronic asthma symptoms in people can be prevented if they follow a healthy diet and exercise program.
In a small but ongoing study published online in the journal Allergy & Immunology, researchers at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York say they showed that exercise induced severe asthma symptoms could be prevented by eating a balanced diet and exercising regularly.
The study is the first to show that exercise induces asthma symptoms, the study authors say.
It’s the first study to suggest exercise induced exacerbations of asthma symptoms can be avoided by a healthy, balanced diet, according to the study’s authors.
The researchers studied the relationship between exercise-induced asthma symptoms and diet and their control group, which did not have asthma symptoms.
The researchers say exercise induced moderate asthma symptoms were significantly reduced in both groups.
The findings were published in the April 27 issue of Allergy.
The authors say they did not know what was causing exercise induced symptoms.
The diet that the researchers recommend for healthy adults was a combination of fruits, vegetables and whole grains.
They recommend eating at least three servings of fruits and vegetables a day and exercising at least four times a week.
