How Serious Is Asthma?

Do you know of anyone that has asthma? Possibly you or your children are bothered with Asthma. There is help and treatment for asthma. Getting the right treatment is critical.

Doe you have any of the asthma symptoms that I have listed in this article? Do any of them them sound familiar? Then you might want to visit your doctor to be sure that you do not have Asthma.

Asthma Symptoms

Asthma is serious. According to the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute Asthma is a chronic lung disease. You may experience periods of wheezing, chest tightness, shortness of breath, and coughing. They further add it affects people of all ages and may happen during the morning or during the night.

Asthma Triggers

Did you know that colds, flu, or sinus infection can trigger asthma flare-ups? Also, according to The American Lung Association animals, pests, mold, and exercise can trigger asthma. It is important to know what triggers your children's asthma. Knowing this can be a big key to managing asthma. This is great that it is manageable.

Obesity in Children

Obesity appears to reduce the effectiveness of inhaled steroids according to Huffingtonpost.com. They further add that obesity makes the lungs' airways dysfunctional and reduces the ability for the lungs to stay open, but it should not be an excuse to avoid exercise because even Olympic athletes suffer from asthma. Again, I say a key importance is that Asthma can be managed.

Asthma Friendly Home

Have you ever heard of an Asthma Friendly Home? Lovechicliving.co.uk talks about keeping your home well-ventilated and dark oak flooring as opposed to carpet. I know many of us probably just love carptet, but they suggest that carpet may bring dust which could be dangerous for those that are asthmatic.


Did you know that a cup of Yogurt may alleviate the symptoms of Asthma? According to Howstuffworks.com the current RDA (Recommended dietary allowance) for vitamin B12 can be found in a cup of yogurt.

Remember Asthma can be managed with the right care.
