Today, we have an intriguing topic as we sit down with Dr. Kerry Reller to explore the intricate connections among asthma, allergies, and weight – three prevalent health concerns that affect a significant portion of the population.

Dr. Reller brings a unique perspective to the discussion. She’s an expert in both medicine and engineering. She completed medical school and a family medicine residency at the University of Maryland. Returning to Florida, she honed her expertise in allergy and asthma care while working with her father. Dr. Reller's dedication to wellness, nutrition, and fitness drove her to specialize in obesity medicine. She is also the owner of Clearwater Family Medicine.

Her insights underscore the complexity of the relationships between asthma and weight. The interaction goes both ways: asthma can worsen weight problems, and vice versa. Past beliefs attributed asthma's impact on weight to physical limitations, but now, thanks to Dr. Keller, we understand inflammation's significant role.

On the flip side, the interplay between asthma and weight is multifaceted. Weight struggles can be influenced by asthma symptoms, and conversely, asthma can also be affected by weight. In terms of. weight loss, it can positively impact asthma. A balanced, anti-inflammatory diet. Shedding weight often leads to reduced medication dependency, better quality of life, and fewer exacerbations

Tune in to gain a deeper understanding of how these conditions intersect and interact, and to explore the expert advice offered by Dr. Reller to empower individuals on their unique health journeys.
