While it is possible for infants and toddlers to have asthma, it may be difficult for your doctor to diagnose because tests aren't accurate before 6 years of age and most of the children over come this asthma like symptoms by age of 4 to 6 years.Some foods have also been found to help protect against asthma and improve lung function.Research has shown that people who eat the most fruit and vegetables along with grains and cereals had a healthy lung function. Make him drink plenty of water as well.Vitamin C and E are also believed to help reduce the severity of asthma. A diet that includes a high level of nutrients can also boost the immune system and help ward off colds and flu ? both common asthma triggers. With regard to the specific tests for lung function improvement/immune system improvement, the tests will be expensive and are not required since the general well being will be sufficient to tell if the immune system is doing well.
