Like any other chronic disease, asthma is a condition you live with every day of your life. Often the best way to control asthma symptoms is to avoid its causes.
Symptoms of asthma include:
There is no cure to asthma, but once it is properly diagnosed and a treatment plan is in place you will be able to manage your condition, and your quality of life will improve. There are variety of asthma medications available. A doctor will be able to discuss which may be the most appropriate for the patient.
A procedure called bronchial thermoplasty may be offered as a treatment to severe asthma.
You will be sedated with the use of a general anesthetics during a bronchial thermoplasty. It involves passing a thin, flexible tube down your throat and into your lungs. Heat is used on the muscles around the airways to help them stop from narrowing and causing asthma symptoms.
Managing your asthma means taking control of your health and living your life to the fullest.
