Brief history: 45yo female, about 50 lbs overweight. I have always had moderate atopic asthma, allergies to cats and
grasses. I smoked about 5 pack years, and
quit completely six years ago. Last November 2008, my asthma was poorly controlled I used Albuterol almost every day), and
I developed acute bronchitis, which, exacerbated by extremely poor air quality from wildfires, resulted in a 2-week acute asthma attack. I was not hospitalized, but my FEV1 got down to 71%.
