Abstract

Asthma and obesity are difficult comorbidities for the clinician to manage. Oral glucocorticosteroid bursts for uncontrolled asthma contribute to obesity, and both diseases limit exercise. To date, findings are limited in the literature regarding the relationship between physical activity status and sedentary behavior among patients with severe asthma. A novel case- control study of 122 participants performed by Cordova-Rivera et al1 investigated physical activity and sedentary time recorded via usage of a triaxial accelerometer (Actigraph, Pensacola, Fla) and pedometer among adults with severe asthma.
