    Failure to diagnose asthma

    Everyone has heard of asthma but few of us are fully aware of what it is and how it can affect the lives of sufferers. This is a condition that affects how well the airways to the lungs work. Sometimes asthma will develop in children whereas in other cases it can develop in adults. No one yet knows exactly what will cause one person to have asthma and another to escape it. Furthermore no two people may have the exact same symptoms.

    There are various things that can trigger an asthma attack in people who have this condition though. For example if you have it and you are susceptible to dust or you have an allergy of some kind, you might find it makes your asthma worse. Very often people will discover certain situations or parts of their lifestyle will lead to more asthma attacks, whereas others will not be able to identify anything in particular.

    Perhaps the most familiar treatment is the inhaler. These are often called reliever inhalers as they are designed to relieve symptoms. There is another type of inhaler though, which is the preventer inhaler. As the name suggests it prevents you from having an attack in the first place (or reduces its severity).

    Is asthma a serious disease that affects your quality of life?

    Asthma varies in severity from one person to the next. While one person may only experience very mild symptoms, others will require hospital treatment from time to time. A severe asthma attack can be fatal, so it is not a disease that should be overlooked. Indeed it is best to seek medical advice from your GP if you experience symptoms you think could be attributed to asthma, so you can get a diagnosis as quickly as possible. They will then assess you for treatment.
