Well, : Well, smoking in feces could introduce a number of bacteria to the lungs, that belong in the gut, not the lung.

Seen Heart,lung,ent,hemat/asthma doc bunch tests only thing found was + meth challenge airway disease. on advair and Prtnx for reflux. 7mths Still have lump feeling in throat and don't get pounding heart feeling beat gos faster. Diff breathin pattern?
See GI doc: I suspect that your reflux is likely the cause for your throat sensation and Prtnx may not be enough to control it. The fast heart beat is likely from the long acting bronchodilator in Advair. With just mild asthma (detected by methacholine challenge only), it is debatable whether you need to take Advair. Consider stopping it . Consider getting checked for vocal cord dysfunction as well. ...Read more
Inhaling particulates like those in tobacco can cause attacks. These substances can cause inflammation which is the primary reaction in asthma followed by constriction of your lung "tubes". Of course, if you have asthma you should quit. I know it isn't easy but you must give it a try.
Good luck. ...Read more
Yes: Smoking (inhaling smoke, which is full of lung irritants and cancer-causing chemicals) of any kind is unhealthy and bad for asthma patients. Weed is illegal under U.S. Law, so one can be thrown in jail and/or convicted of a crime. Jail has its own dangers such as getting assaulted. However, if one's doctor has prescribed weed as a medical treatment, the risks and benefits will have to be compared. ...Read more
Generally no: While weed doesn't cause as much problems with asthma as tobacco smoke, you really don't know what is in it, and any burned material being inhaled is not good for your longs. That being said, the active ingredients in pot, cannabadiol and thc, may have some bronchodilating properties. You don't know, however, whether the weed has been sprayed with insecticides etc etc. Not a good idea. ...Read more

It can: Inhaling smoke of any kind can be an irritant to the airways. People with asthma have hyper-responsive airways that undergo bronchospasm in response to many types of irritants.

Can explain what's is the difference between smoking meth and inject meth?Is there any difference on the urine?How long will the urine clear?
Methamphetamine: Methamphetamine's elimination half-life is around 10 hours, and it's detectable in your urine for 1-4 days. It will remain detectable in your hair follicles for up to 90 days. It stays in your system longer when injected than smoked. The drug is extremely dangerous no matter how it's used -- you risk heart attack and stroke even when young. Very addictive too. Please stay away from it. ...Read more
Slightly elevated RBC, h&h and MPV. Only like 1 point above normal for about a month now. Can asthma, smoking or bronchitis cause this? Worried.
Maybe/depends,,,: Your h&h (hemoglobin and hematocrit) could be higher than expected due to the asthma as these indicate red cell mass and are important in oxygen carrying and increase to compensate for the trouble asthma may cause in getting enough oxygen. The MPV might just be a one time reading, but smoking and your Klonopin (clonazepam) use can affect platelets. It'd be smart to see your Dr. For more tests and discussion ...Read more

I have asthma and my job wants to test to see if im smoking but all i do is chewing tabacco will it show up soley as chewing tabacco or just positive?
Positive test: Testing for these products relies on chemical markers that appear in urine, blood or hair, depending on the test used. Chewing tobacco will cause the same chemicals to form as smoking. You may want to clarify the rules at your job because they may consider any nicotine use as a problem. You will flunk the test. ...Read more
