Something sounds wrong. Why are more young kids developing asthma from exercise?

Breathing while exercising is not like normal breathing. In normal breathing you breathe through your nose which filters, warms and moistens the air before it goes into your lungs. Breathing during exercise is faster, deeper and often through the mouth which means cooler, dryer air with more dust and pollen etc to cause a reaction to those wth sensative airways.

I would not be surprised to hear that this type of breathing can help to cause sensativity in the airways but then I am just hazarding a guess.
From what I read, exercise has many benefits and if you are at risk for exercise induced asthma there are steps you can take such as using you medication prior to exercising or changing the type of exercise you do.

I now use Advair for a day or two only-- if I'm wheezing. I found the inhalants dried out my bronchioles, throat and esophagus- which made me feel sicker. And I read recently that for mild Asthma sufferers, inhalants used on a continuous basis- didn't have any effect.

Thanks for the link.
:wink:
