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.

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.

I did not eat 2 or 3 days then I met my family doctor after a very long period, he advised to meet an asthma specialist and he also suggested that I may have phlum in my lungs etc.

Could you kindly advise what specialist I should meet, I am registered with St Johns Bangalore.
