Thanks for the query.

Exercise-induced asthma can be a problem for diving, as unexpected events can make sudden demands on your exercise tolerance, and any form of exertion is much harder underwater. Clearly you can't take any sort of inhaler down with you, so we need to be as sure as possible that you will not get any exercise-induced asthma before certifying you for diving.

That said, I do think it would be worth you getting an assessment, as we can do various tests to gauge the risk. So see your local diving doc and see what they say.

Regards, Dr O
