Asthma is a condition that affects the lungs. It can be a chronic, long-term condition that is difficult to treat. A person with asthma has air passages in their lungs that are sensitive to certain triggers, such as allergens or irritants. When these triggers are present, the airways in a person’s lungs become inflamed. This inflammation causes the muscles around the airways to tighten and narrow. The narrowing of these muscles makes it difficult for the airways to expand when needed, or allows them to become too narrow and constricted. This narrowing of the airways is what causes asthma symptoms to occur.
Treatment for Asthma: Inhalers, Nebulizers, Diet, and Exercise
There is no treatment for asthma. In most cases, asthma can be managed with proper medication. In some cases, it may require additional medical treatment to manage the condition and prevent long-term complications from developing.
Inhalers: Asthma inhalers are a type of medicine that is used to treat asthma. They are a type of medication that is inhaled into the lungs. Inhalers work by relaxing the muscles around the airways in a person’s lungs, which allows them to expand when needed.
Nebulizers: Nebulizers are a type of medicine that is used to treat asthma. There are various types of nebulizers. The latest introduced to the market is the portable nebulizer. They are a type of medication that is inhaled into the lungs using a nebulizer machine. Nebulizers, like inhalers, relax the muscles around the airways of the lungs so that the person with asthma could breathe easily.
Diet: Diet is one of the best ways for a person with asthma to manage their symptoms and prevent long-term complications from developing. A person can control their asthma by following an asthma diet. This means that a person should eat foods that are low in allergens and irritants, which will help to prevent asthma symptoms from occurring.
Exercise: Exercise is another way to manage asthma symptoms. A person with asthma should avoid exercising when they have severe or frequent symptoms, but if they are able to exercise regularly, it can help them feel better and prevent long-term complications from developing.
