Abstract:
Background: Asthma management is a complex process influenced by multiple interacting factors. Among India’s 1.31 billion people, about 6% of children and 2% of adults have asthma. Objectives: To study the effect of diet and exercise, onpulmonary function test values in patients of mild asthma. Methodology: 80 mild asthma patients in the age group of 20-60 years, including both sexes and taking antiasthma treatment since 5 to 10 years will be recruited for the study. Observation: Statistically significant values of TV, ERV and FVC was obtained in the exercise group as compared to the diet group. Conclusion: Regular exercise like walking for 30 minutes at dawn or dusk for 5 days a week for at least twelve weeks can better lung function values and can supplement routine medications in mild asthmatic patients.
