Joanie -

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.

I can do all things through Christ who strenghtens me Philippians 4:13

I've never done this here goes!

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.
