Objective: In our previous work, we proposed that dietary calories play an important role in the onset of asthma. To provide further evidence of the importance of calorie reduction in the onset of the disease, we conducted an in-depth analysis on this subject. Data Sources: Our updated analysis was based on our previous research, namely dietary nonallergic factors and atopic diseases, and our 2005 systematic review on calorie-controlled diets for chronic asthma. Study Selections: In our search for articles published between January 2005 and October 2022, we sought directly related Randomized Controlled Trials (RCTs), which assessed the effects of calorie reduction in people with asthma compared to those on conventional diets. Results: A total of 12 articles, with 1,794 patients, were identified and included in our updated calorie control analysis. In addition, some of the articles contained data on the impact of exercise on patients with asthma. The studies involved adults or children with a diagnosis of asthma in general practice or in outpatient departments. In particular, they demonstrated approaches for varying degrees of improvement in asthma symptom control, lung function, and inflammatory markers. Due to heterogeneity and differences among data sets, only Forced Vital Capacity (FVC) (p<0.05), the Asthma Quality of Life Questionnaire (AQLQ) (p=0.002), and the Asthma Control Questionnaire (ACQ) (p=0.00001) could undergo meta-analysis, and yielded significant findings. Conclusion: Our updated analysis highlights the significant role of dietary calorie control in the onset of asthma.
