Asthma is a lung disease that affects the airways and can make it difficult to breathe. It is a chronic disease, which means that it is never cured, but its symptoms can be managed with medications and lifestyle changes. To diagnose asthma and differentiate it from other lung disorders, your doctor will use a combination of medical history, physical examination and one or more laboratory tests. Your doctor will develop treatment recommendations based on that information, the extent of the disease and your opinion or preference.

Asthma medications

Your doctor may recommend one or two types of medications to help treat asthma. You may use a long-term control medication every day to control symptoms and prevent an acute asthma attack. Quick-relief medication can help relieve the sudden onset of asthma symptoms or asthma symptoms that only occur occasionally. It is important to take your medications as prescribed. Your doctor will monitor your asthma and may recommend different medications as your health changes.

Lifestyle management

If you have asthma, you can learn to identify asthma triggers and limit your exposure to them. Common triggers include upper respiratory infections, plus allergens and irritants, such as pollens, certain foods, perfumes or cigarette smoke. Your doctor can suggest strategies for exercising without triggering asthma symptoms. Tell your doctor about any medications you are taking for other conditions, as some may worsen asthma symptoms.
