A doctor, Motoyasu Iikura, from the center's respiratory medicine department in Tokyo said that the patients with asthma need to seek a particularly healthy lifestyle.

The study, which was conducted on 437 adult asthma patients, was done to find out the connection between lifestyle habits, like drinking, exercising and eating, and the degree of symptom control.

The study also found that body mass index (BMI), which is commonly used to screen obesity, and drinking habits were not related to symptom control.
