Diet and exercise

I'm 44 yr old, i had very bad asthma as a child, but have been able to get off medications as I grow older. I now try to control my asthma with a good diet and moderate exercise. I only have problems when I have a cold or my allergies kick in.

Hi Rubicontrail,

You bring up a great point, that a good diet and maintaining an active lifestyle (which includes exercise) are important parts of asthma treatment. You might be interested in this article about asthma and diet that outlines some foods that may be beneficial in reducing asthma symptoms and some that you might want to avoid, as well as this article on asthma and exercise . I am glad that you have found a way to successfully control your asthma symptoms.

Best wishes,
