THE LANGUAGE OF COPD/ASTHMA/HEALTH
This is ASTHMA!
When you have a disability or chronic illness, one of the most important things you can do is to learn as much as you can about it. The more you know, the easier it should be to get a handle on those days when you feel like it is a constant battle and you may not feel like you have any chance of winning even one step in your favor!
Knowing the language or words that go with COPD and Asthma would be a great way to start or continue in learning or refreshing a person’s knowledge of the ins and outs of the lifelong health companion you are dealing with.
With that, we discuss some of what we call the ‘must know words’ of living with COPD, Asthma or your Health in general.
Today we discuss the importance of the word ‘Asthma’.
‘Asthma’ is a common inflammatory disease of the airways and can be found in over 25 million people in the United States and upward to 300 million people around the world according to figures published in 2013.
‘Asthma’ is noticeable by variable and recurring symptoms such as wheezing, coughing, chest tightness and shortness of breath.
In the beginning stages and milder cases, ‘Asthma’ is a reversible condition of airflow obstruction and bronchospasms.
Thought to be set off by both genetic and environmental factors most of the time, ‘Asthma’ in it’s early and milder cases will normally be controlled with medicines that may include certain types of inhalers.
Long-term effects of ‘Asthma’ is generally good, especially for children with milder case of the disease and the mortality rates from ‘Asthma’ has decreased over the last few decades due to better recognition and improvement in the ability to care for the disease.
Left unchecked, the constant chronic inflammation of ‘Asthma’ can lead to lungs becoming irreversibly obstructed due to the airways being remodeled by the disease and it’s effects.
If you or someone you know continually has issues with getting short on breath from exercise, smelling something in the air or for whatever reason – it is recommended that a doctor is seen and make the request to check for any signs of ‘Asthma’.
ALWAYS REMEMBER > A person without good breathing, is a person with a life of constant caution’, so let’s do what we can, to learn what we can, to improve what we can.
Always be aware – if you or anyone you know have any symptoms involving lung and breathing functionality, and they linger over and over while disrupting a lifestyle – then please ask questions and get it checked out by a reliable physician or pulmonologist.
We bid to all – smiles, prayers, blessings and steady breathing – Mr. William for wheezingaway.com & CrossDove Writers.
