Asthma Treatments

What is Asthma?

Asthma is a chronic and potentially life-threatening lung disease in which airways become inflamed and/or swollen, making it hard to breathe. An estimated 25 million Americans suffer from asthma. Allergic asthma is the most common form of asthma, accounting for 60% of asthmatics. Allergic asthma is triggered by inhaling allergens such as dust mites, pet dander, pollens, mold, etc. Although asthma is not curable, it most often can be well-controlled.
