PCOS Link to Increased Risk of Hospitalization for Asthma

Major weight problems are often caused by PCOS and women who are obese run nearly five times the risk of being hospitalized for asthma, according to a new study.
 
Researchers at Kaiser Permanente discovered the increased risk after focusing on 1,113 people aged 35 or older with persistent asthma in Oregon, Washington and Colorado. The study also found:

  • Obese people with asthma had significantly worse asthma control and lower asthma-related quality of life.
  • Obese people with asthma had a higher incidence of gastroesophageal reflux disorder.

The study concluded that if you are merely overweight, you should consider the increased risk of severe asthma attacks to be another good reason for getting your weight down to a healthy level.
