Asthma prescription to include exercise

Asthmatics who avoid exercise due to belief that it is bad for their health have been corrected by a study that looked at regular exercise undertaken by a group of asthma sufferers. The results showed an improvement in lung and heart function and more effective ventilation of their lungs, with no exacerbation of asthma symptoms, such as wheezing. A doctor should be consulted before asthmatics formulate an exercise plan, particularly if they suffer from exercise-induced asthma.
