I don't really have exercise induced asthma but I do have a problem running in the cold. Its just hard for me to breathe. I asked my doctor about it and she asked if I took my rescue inhaler before I ran and I said no because it makes me shaky. And so she gave me a prescription for XOPENEX which is a rescue inhaler which doesn't give you the shakes as much. She told me to use it before I run and I should be ok.
Haven't tried it yet but maybe that is a solution for you? To use your inhaler beforehand?
Either way, I hope you find something that works.

Hello and welcome to the team. I also am a type 2 diabetic but am able now to control mine by my diet. I have allergy induced asthma which is really giving me fits right now with all the changes in the weather. Best of luck to you and here if you need me.

My name is Joanie and I've had a weight problem all my life. In Sept. 08, I found out I was a type 2 diabetic. I was put on insulin right away because of my blood sugar count. I hate needles!! I want to be serious about losing weight and exercising so that perhaps one day I can control by diabetes with diet and exercise and not shots. I also have asthma (exercise induced) and would love to be able to conquer this. Anyone have any tips on how to exercise so that my asthma would not flair up. I want to thank my sis, Linda, who introduced me to this website. I can see that it can be a really good tool to use if I use it faithfully everyday.
