About Asthma

Asthma is a chronic lung disease which causes the airways to be very sensitive. Airways become inflamed and narrow. Breathing becomes difficult.The inflammation leads to edema or swelling, of the airways. Edema causes cells in the airways to break down. This breakdown of cells releases chemicals into the airways that lead to more edema and inflammation. Increased inflammation, swelling, and mucus block the flow of air, making it difficult for you to breathe.


Managing your asthma correctly is very important to leading an active and healthy life. Your first step in managing your asthma should be forming a strong partnership with your doctor. Together, you can develop a personalized treatment plan to help control your symptoms
