A new study finds asthma hampers dating, sexual pleasures and careers of people afflicted with the disease.

According to Asthma Australia report on the study, about 33 percent of dads suffering from uncontrolled asthma avoid running around with their kids.


More than 1000 people with poor asthma control took part in the study.

More than 10 percent mothers said that they avoided playtime with their kids and 16 per cent of parents said that they found it difficult to carry their kid, News.com.au reported.

Dating and socialising were a major problem among those afflicted with the disease, with a large proportion of people saying that they could not keep up with pals during a night out, many went home early.

33 per cent of men and about 20 per cent of women said that their asthma interfered with their sex life.
