I'm 19 and a brittle asthmatic - I tend to have pretty constant symptoms and spend far too much time in hospital! I am training to be a doctor as at least that way I'm always in the right place when an attack strikes!
I had a pretty severe attack in August - I wasn't intubated but spent a good 10 days in ICU and another two weeks in hospital. Whilst I was there, my consultant put me on Calcichews... he said that because I take pred daily, and have done for a couple of years, that I was more likely to develop osteoporosis... is this right? Am I not too young???
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
