A web survey on asthma and medication was conducted among 38,603 adult participants of three Swedish endurance competitions (cross-country running, cross-country skiing, and swimming).
The aim of this cross-sectional study was to determine the prevalence among competitive recreational endurance athletes of self-reported physician-diagnosed asthma and asthma medication use and their association with training.
