Asthma

Asthma affects the small airways that carry air in and out of the lungs.
These airways can become inflamed, swollen and contract. You may
be one of more than the 5.2 million people in the UK who have asthma.

What causes it?
Asthma often runs in families. Children are also more likely to develop
asthma if their mother smokes during pregnancy or while breastfeeding.

Most people find there are several things that can trigger their asthma

Some of the most common predisposing factors for asthma are allergies
to house dust mites, mould spores, pollen and pets, and sometimes food
allergies. Most people find there are several things that can trigger their
asthma.

Asthma triggers include:

Viral infections, such as colds and flu

Cigarette smoke

Certain forms of exercise, such as running

Exposure to cold, dry air

Laughing and other emotions

Medication containing aspirin

Drinks containing sulphur dioxide, such as squashes and lemon
barley water

What are the symptoms?
The main symptoms are coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath and a
tight feeling in the chest.

What's the treatment?
There are two main treatments for asthma - relievers and preventers.
These come in a variety of delivery devices called inhalers.
You breathe the medicine in through your mouth, directly into your lungs.

Relievers are drugs called 'bronchodilators' (based on adrenaline)
that relax the muscles which surround the airways, making it easier to
breathe. You should take these as directed by your doctor as soon as
symptoms appear.

Taking a dose of the reliever inhaler before exercise will increase your
stamina and prevent breathing difficulty.

Preventers are drugs (usually low-dose steroids) that reduce inflammation
in the airways and make them less sensitive. This means that you are less
likely to react when your body comes across a trigger.

The protective effect of this medicine is built up over a period of
time so you must take your preventer regularly, as directed by
your doctor.

Combination preventer and long-acting reliever inhalers have
become very popular and seem to be particularly good in controlling
more severe persistent asthma.

If your asthma is really bad, your doctor may also prescribe a short
course of steroid tablets to calm your inflamed airways.

Newer anti-inflammatory medication includes the leukotriene antagonists,
which are particularly useful for brittle asthma

Newer anti-inflammatory medication includes the leukotriene antagonists,
which are particularly useful for brittle asthma and patients with
aspirin-sensitive asthma.

The most recent addition to the list of possible treatments for asthma
is a new injection medication for those with severe allergic asthma,
which works by dampening down the allergic reaction.

There is little scientific evidence to support the use of breathing
exercises in the treatment of asthma. However, some people with
asthma find that breathing exercises reduce their symptoms of asthma
and reduce their need for medication.

Can I prevent asthma?
You can help to avoid asthma by taking preventer medicine regularly
and by avoiding your triggers. You can also monitor your asthma by
asking your doctor to provide you with a peak-flow meter, a simple
device that measures the amount of breath in your lungs.

If your asthma is caused by an allergy, you may be able to find out
what you are allergic to by having special tests and then take
practical steps to avoid the allergen.

Remember: never stop taking your preventer medication, even when
your symptoms are stable. Don't wait until your symptoms get worse -
they'll be harder to treat. Our asthma guide has more detailed information.
