I am 51 yrs. old and have had allergy & exercised induced asthma for the past 10 or so yrs. The past year was the worst and I was on steroids for two months and gained 15 lbs :( I actually had another flare-up that started yesterday, been using nebulizer every four hrs. with Albuterol. My maintenance meds are Pulmacort flex-inhaler each morning and Claritin & Albuterol inhaler when needed. I'm so discouraged about the weight gain, I eat very healthy, & I love to ride my bicycle, walk, gardening, & yoga. I'm not a smoker & I've always tried to take care of myself because I knew my health mattered. I can't seem to lose any weight, I'm 25 lbs overweight. I track everything that I eat and the weight just stays with me. I've even tried body by V shakes and nothing seems to work. My asthma is keeping me from doing the things I want to do. My doctor will put me back on predisone as a solution but I don't want to gain more weight.
