Hi All, thanks to all those that have been in touch so far and taken part. We are seeing some really interesting results and improvments in EIA. So if you have asthma or exercise induced asthma then please get in touch we are still recruiting volunteers.
Interesting and I'm localish but I don't think I've suffered from asthma since about a month after I took up running when I was in my 20s it was bad and had to be rushed to a&e a few times didn't think I'd be able to run
Booktrunk thanks for your message please get in touch if you would like to come in for an exercise induced asthma diagnosis session.
What are the dietary supplements that are being tested? Unfortunately at 46 I'm too old to take part but interested in the theory as my asthma is really bugging me at the moment
Hi Savi, we are looking at Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids. They have anti-inflammatory properties that have the potential to surpress the airway inflammation associated with exercise induced asthma. Of real interest is the biologically active fatty acids of EPA and DHA typically found in oily fish. However, the quantities gained from a normal 'western' diet are often not adequate to have any benficial effect hence the need for dietary supplementation of omega 3 capsules. If you would like further info then please feel free to message me directly.
Thanks to all those that have responded so far, we are still look for more asthmatic volunteers for these studies. So if you can get to Nottingham and are interested in recieving a specific exercise induced asthma diagnosis and interested in our novel reserach then please get in touch!
