People experiencing shortness of breath & whistling or wheezy sound in the chest while breathing, may wonder what’s going wrong with them. But, in fact it’s an attack of asthma—a chronic respiratory disease. I am Dr. Nirupama, and I am here to provide a complete overview on Asthma disease.
Learning, about asthma and being aware of its symptoms and risk factors helps you either in preventing the disease or its worsening conditions. Every day, a number of patients suffering from Asthma visit me for treatment. Besides, providing the treatment I suggest few life style changes that could help them in controlling the asthma and the elements that triggers it. Presumably, the count of asthma patients may increase in the coming years, due to various reasons. Therefore, I recommend that every individual irrespective of their age and gender must be aware of the Asthma and its preventive measures, so that at least the count of asthma victims could decline.
What is Asthma?
Asthma is a chronic disorder that causes due to the inflammation & narrowing of bronchial tubes or airways in the lungs. When you are suffering from asthma, your airways are would be highly sensitive and they may react to several substances or situations, which are nothing but triggers. If an individual get exposed to those triggers the symptoms become more severe. Patients who consult me often complain that they wheeze or feel “tight” in their chest, and also, they experience severe cough. Usually, these are the some of the signs of asthma.
According to my research, asthma symptoms affect both adults and children — and it is the one of the major causes of absences from work & school. It often runs in families; and over half of the patients who approach me diagnosed by asthma due to genetic susceptibility & remaining from environmental factors. However, there are many effective treatments available to treat and control Asthma. Getting appointment at right time, is the best way to control the Asthma. Remember, if asthma is left untreated or misdiagnosed, it can be fatal; every year a thousands of individuals die due to asthma.
