Clinical question for literature search

  • Does a weight loss intervention or program (e.g. diet, exercise, physical activity) improve asthma outcomes in obese/overweight patients (adults/children) with asthma, compared with usual care?
  • Does surgically induced weight loss (e.g. gastric bypass, gastric banding, bariatric surgery) improve asthma outcomes in obese patients with asthma, compared with usual care?
