The truth about asthma

Asthma can be one of the most frightening illnesses we face. Asthma is a disorder which affects the lower airway within the lungs, and it afflicts children and adults alike. When these small airways are inflamed, the size of the airway opening is reduced and the amount of air that flows in and out of the lungs is decreased—and reduces the necessary oxygen to the bloodstream. Unfortunately, chronic inflammation can also lead to permanent damage of the airways and lifelong respiratory disease. Depending on a patient’s individual case, physical activity and multiple irritants can trigger the inflammation that causes asthma. Stress can also lead to an asthma attack. In some cases, the cause of asthma is unknown.
