Asthma and Menopause
An_257741 posted:
Can anyone tell me what the connection is between asthma and menopause? I see menopause mentioned one place on this site as a possible cause for adult-onset asthma, but cannot find any more info.
cherie860 responded:
I'm not sure about asthma and menopause, but I got asthma with my last pregnancy. My pulmonologist told me it was the hormones. He said 1/3 of woman get better, 1/3 get worst, and 1/3 stay the same with the hormones of pregnancy.
fercryinoutloud replied to cherie860's response:
cherie860, thank you for this. It seems to move me closer to confirming hormones as a possible cause. Asthma has cost me over $20,000 (in prescriptions, high co-pays and high deductibles) over the past 3-1/2 years! It w/b nice to treat the cause, rather than the symptoms.
