From General forum » Exercise Induced Asthma »

Hi All,

An estimated 90% of asthmatics, and 10-50% of given athletic populations suffer from exercise induced asthma! With a high prevalence in endurance sports do you suffer from asthma or exercise induced asthma?

If yes then we need you!

I am a PhD researcher running a number of research trials at Nottingham Trent University these are examining the diagnosis of EIA and in a novel and exciting step whether the managment of EIA can be improved through dietary manipulation.

Who can take part?

- Physically active men (training 3-4 hours a week) aged 18-45

- Who get wheezy and tight chested during exercise or on the cessation of exercise and/or have asthma.

What will you get out of it?

– We will confirm whether you have exercise induced asthma (it is commonly misdiagnosed!),

- Provide free fitness testing,

- Potentially reduce your asthma symptoms.

Next Step - If you would like more information please contact
