ASTHMA IS A CHRONIC INFLAMMATION OF AIRWAYS. IT DEPENDS ON THE ENVIRONMENT AND LIFESTYLE. ASTHMA IS A CONTROLLABLE DISEASE WITH REGULAR USE OF INHALED CIRTICOSTEROIDS. BY MEANS OF BRONCHOPROVOCATION TEST IT CAN BE SAID THAT YOUR ASTHMA IS CURED. BUT PRACTICALLY IT IS QUIET IMPOSSIBLE AS ASTHMA HAS A GENETIC LINK ALSO AND IN FUTURE GENE THERAPY MAY BE AVAILABLE FOR ASTHMA. THEN ASTHMA CAN BE CURED.

hhhhhhhhiiiiiiiiiiiiii
ASTHMA IS ALLERGIC DISORDER, THERE ARE SO MANY DRUGS AND AEROSOL THERAPY THAT HELP IN TREATMENT OF ASTHMA .
BUT AS PART OF PREVENTION YOU HAVE TO GO FOR ALLERGIC TEST AND IMMUNOTHERAPY.
YOU HAVE TO TAKE TREATMENT MUCH OR LESS OR INTERMITANTLY LIFE LONG IF YOU ARE ABOVE 20YRS.
OOOOOOOOOOOKKKKKKKKKK

hi, asthma cannot be cured, but it can be controlled.You have a better chance of controlling your asthma if it is diagnosed early and treatment begun right away.With proper treatment, people with asthma can have fewer and less severe attacks.Without treatment, they will have more frequent and more severe asthma attacks and can even die.

Hi, I suffer from allergic asthma. Recently, I had a severe bout of asthma attack and had been taken to hospital for a checkup. Doctor after examining me stated I had an chronic asthma for the last 4-5 years and prescribed me Esiflo (rota-inhaler) and an aerospacer for use. I am using it for the last 2 months but I do not want to get addicted to the use of the pump. Does anybody knows of any other cure for asthma apart from the medicine, which would help me?? Your suggestion would be of great help to me.

My wife is 33 yrs old. She is prone to suffer for asthma very rarely. We got married since 11 years, she suffered hardly 4 times, but not so bad, only little suffering. I took her to doctor they gave some medicine and puf and she got cured. but last two weeks,she is suffering for asthma but not getting cured properly. It is the longest time she is suffering for. She is 5 feet 1 inch, weight 74 kgs, but she is having thyroid since 2001, but now her thyroid is under control. Asthma is her genetic issue, her grandmother was having the same problem. We are staying in Kolkata. Please advise which doctor we should see, to cure the same.

Hi, I ve been experiencing chest tightness for over a month. It is not constant, but periodic. I ve been to my GP who listened to my chest and found no wheezing. She prescribed Advair 2x/day for a month and had me see her after 2 weeks of use. She said my lungs were clear but to finish the month on Advair so that we can stabalize the tightness. I am in my 3rd week now and am currently experiencing the Same degree of tightness that caused me to go to her 3 weeks ago. The only things i ve changed with my lifestyle in the past couple of months is going on the Pill for the first time in my life (starting in Feb.). I am now 35. And i ve added daily fish oil capsules as a dietary supplement. Can any of these cause intermittent chest tightness or could it be more serious, like asthma, lung disease or even Cancer? (I have never smoked in my life but my father smoked in the house when i was growing up.)

Hello, I have a 4 1/2 month old baby who is breathing at 72 breaths per minute resting. She was 38weeks at delivery and, while small (2.75 kg) was pretty good for a twin. Her growth is fine and development normal. I am just concerned about breath rate as our 3 year old has bronchiolitis obliterans and is oxygen dependent. I think we did not diagnose her problems early enough. Any advice?

My daughter is almost 18 and has been having trouble with her breathing since she was 13! like she can t can t catch her breath,even while just watching TV. Used to have trouble getting to sleep, now she can but wakes up extremely exhausted like she never slept!

Had a spirometry test-neg result. blood test said her white blood count was a little low. But no real answers! She is irritable most times, due to lack of sleep. She is very frustrated! He gave her nose spray, still no change. what about her adrenal glands? can you help?
