Asthma

Excercise Induced Asthma

10/28/2008

Question:

My niece is a H.S. senior who is unable to play basketball due to what general practitioners desacribe as excercise-induced asthma. After years of inhalers, etc. nothing seems to help and most medical personnel utilized to date seem to want to prescribe the "general" treatment which hasn`t prevented the attacks. How would a person obtain help through the OSU program with the thought of finally getting an assessment and diagnosis of the underlying problem?

Answer:
