What is Asthma?

Asthma is a long-term condition that affects the lungs. The symptoms of asthma usually show up in childhood however it can develop in people of all ages at any particular stage of life. If any of your family members has an asthma allergy or breathing problem, you are more likely to develop asthma. Atopy, or the genetic tendency to develop allergic diseases, can play a vital role in the development of allergic asthma.

Asthma can lead to severe breathing problems and other complications. In some cases, it may lead to respiratory failure and prove to be fatal. Large tubes called bronchi carry air in and out of your lungs. In asthma, these bronchial tubes can become inflamed and swollen causing chest tightness, coughing, and wheezing.

Without proper treatment, living with asthma can be challenging. Every patient with asthma has various triggers. Some common triggers include pet dander, pollens, tobacco smoke, stress, exercise, respiratory infections, and hormones.
