Weight, diets, exercise and asthma
I suffer from asthma and I have always had to take precautions before working out. I often have had to use my inhaler before exercise to prevent an asthma attack. My asthma is not triggered by exercise but by indoor allergens. Dust is my enemy.
Some people with asthma have to go to the extremes of using allergy mattress covers, special indoor filter systems and in some cases diet precautions.
I am lucky that I have what the doctors call very mild asthma. I only need my inhalers when needed. I will not let my asthma stop me from taking care of the rest of my health.
