Girls who are obese are more likely to also have asthma than are obese boys. A study recently published in The Journal of Pediatrics gauged the relationship of physical fitness levels and obesity risk to asthma in adolescent boys and girls.

.

The study results pointed to several outcomes that diverged by sex, with obesity associated with greater prevalence of asthma in girls but not in boys, independent of fitness levels. At the same time, higher fitness levels were associated with reduced asthma morbidity in boys but not girls, regardless of weight considerations.

.

The cross sectional assessment, led by Kim D. Lu MD, and colleagues, a pediatric pulmonologist in the Department of Pediatrics, UC Irvine Medical Center, Orange, CA, examined data from the 1999-2004 National Health and Nutrition Examination survey. The study group comprised of 4828 adolescents between 12-19 years of age.

None of these associations was found for boys. Overweight/obese girls also showed significantly increased odds of asthma attacks and exercise-related wheezing (while boys did not).

.

Examining the roles of fitness levels, high fitness among boys though not girls - was associated with significantly decreased odds of asthma morbidity.
