A Cookbook for Asthmatics!

Friend, Award-winning Chef , severe asthmatic and fellow SARP alumnus, Sheila Brillhard, wrote me the other day to tell me about her new cookbook . She created it for people who have to take prednisone for their asthma or other medical conditions. What a cleaver idea!

I’m sure I don’t have to tell you how steroids can effect your appetite and how important it is to eat the right foods when you’re on the stuff. Sheila’s book is chock full nutritional tips and tasty recipes designed for people like us to have to live on the evil candy, or as Sheila calls them in her book, “scare-roids”.

Her book is available through Amazon or you download it from Lulu.
You can read more about Sheila on her website SheilaBrillhart.com

Most frequently asked question

"Can you have an asthma attack with a normal sat reading"?
The answer is..YES!
While it's a little unusual to see a person with a perfect O2 sat of a 100% during a severe exacerbation, its pretty typical to see sats in the 94-97% range. The reason for this, is that asthma is a disease of the airways , not the alveoli where gas exchange takes place. Most asthmatics dont desaturate during the early stages of an attack,unless theres a secondary problem such as pneumonia. You have to be extremely ill with asthma if your sats are low.
