Asthma treatment typically consists of bronchodilator and steroid inhalers. Other meds are used if symptoms persist despite this therapy. Weight loss strategies typically center around diet and exercise. See your doctor for diagnosis and continued treatment, especially for persistent asthma symptoms. If you smoke, smoking cessation is needed to decrease airway inflammation.
