Exercise Induced Asthma Worsened by Dehydration

Spring Fit Tip: Keep Hydrated, Especially Asthma Sufferers

As the weather slowly turns and you start exercising in warm weather it's important to remember to keep hydrated. This is especially important for asthma sufferers as dehydration has been known to make it worse.


Dehydration can cause bronchospasm, a constriction of the lung airways, which can make exercise induced asthma worse. So no matter who you are, try to keep water or sports drinks off hand during all your spring exercise endeavors. Also, if you have asthma, then be sure to have a rescue inhaler with you whenever you're exercising.
