It happens every year at about this time of the year I get an attack of asthma. I am getting fed up of it.
Admittedly I don’t seem to suffer now as bad as I did when I was a bit younger. maybe my body is getting to tolerate it more. May I am getting so used to my asthma I don’t notice it as much as I used to do.
But when shopping around I came across a website that seemed to be giving some good advice and thought I should share it with others as well.
This is a abstract from one of its pages I “borrowed” for your info but have a look at the full article yourself.
Asthma Disease and Doctors
Admittedly, asthma is a difficult disease to identify early. It resembles so many other respiratory infections that it becomes difficult to tell them apart. That is why you should not be trying it on your own. Bring your doctor into the picture.
You could be living with asthma without even knowing it. All that coughing, shortness of breath, wheezing, and so on, they could be asthma manifesting. Don’t spend another night without confirming it. Asthma attack is generally triggered by allergens. These allergens are present in air in forms of dust, pollens/mould or trapped air. Other triggers include concentrated smells, food with high fatty contents and dairy products.
Cold climate may also trigger an asthmatic attack. As an asthma patient, it is essential that you keep yourself warm at all times, regardless of how you feel at any moment. Taking a table spoon of honey before going to bed every winter and keeping warm will help prevent asthmatic attack.
It is important to have your lung capacity tested from time to time. This is one of the critical means by which they could diagnose you for asthma, or not. You don’t want to pass up on the chance.
When you have asthma, you want to pay attention to everything that the doctor orders. That could very easily be what saves your life from complications of the disease, or from attacks that attack so incessantly and without warning. Disregarding an instruction could very well be the end of you, so you need to be advised.
Seeing as you are not the asthma pro, you might want to take a chill pill on your suggestions and suppositions. It is tough enough doing their job; you don’t want to make things harder for your specialist than they totally need to be.
Anyway have a have a quick look http://asthma-reviews.org website and let me know what you think
