Asthma and Pulmonary Conditions
What are they?
Asthma is a disease of the respiratory system in which the airways unexpectedly narrow. Adult-onset asthma is closely associated with GERD. Common symptoms of asthma include wheezing, coughing, and chest tightness. While asthma may be found regardless of someone’s age, gender, or body mass, the disease tends to be more severe in the obese.
What success have patients found through bariatric surgery?
While asthma remains a treatable but incurable disease, research has shown improvement in asthmatic symptoms through significant weight loss.
