You indicate that there are 3 problems: asthma, stomach bloating and being overweight. Some orally taken asthma drugs can cause bloating and/or heartburn. The better treatment, and one that will enable you to avoid the stomach distress is to use inhaled medication to control the asthma. This will require one or more prescription inhalers that deliver medication, one that dilates or opens-up the bronchial tubes and another inhaler that treats the inflammation that is such an important part of asthma.
The problem of losing weight is a difficult one. Many medications are prescribed for this but generally these are not effective and may actually be harmful.
It is best for you to not try to do this on your own, but to enroll in a weight loss program. Effective weight loss programs focus on one’s total life style, of which a regular exercise program is an essential component. Many employers provide such programs for their employees. One such is the following program provided by the healthcare institution, National Jewish Health in Denver Colorado. You may wish to visit the following web-site to get a better idea of how one such a program works. http://www.nationaljewish.org/programs/prevention/fitlogix/
Back to a regular exercise program ---You will want to exercise on a regular basis and, as you mention your inability to engage in “cardio” because of your asthma, it will be crucial that you work with your doctor to achieve optimum control of your asthma.
