What Else Affects Asthma Symptoms? continued...
There is no evidence that elimination of all dairy products from the diet improves asthma control, even in a minority of patients. That’s simply a myth and can lead to osteoporosis, especially in patients who must regularly take corticosteroids to control their severe asthma.
Before you make any big changes to your eating habits, it’s always a good idea to talk to your health care provider or asthma specialist first. Depending on your asthma diagnosis -- and considering your general health and the severity of your asthma symptoms -- your health care provider might have specific advice for how to improve your diet.
