Overweight and obese adults with asthma participated in weight loss programs. Better success at losing weight was found to be linked to more severe asthma, male sex and improvements in eating behaviour.

Also, gender tailoring of weight loss programs may be useful to enhance weight loss success, said Lisa Wood, senior author of the Respirology study.
