In a St. Joseph Healthscene Report, obesity may make asthma worse.
A new study finds obese people who have asthma are nearly 5 times more likely to be hospitalized for the condition compared with non-obese people with asthma.
Researchers hope the study will convince doctors to monitor obese people with asthma more carefully since it's harder to control their condition.
