Asthma is a condition in which the respiratory system constricts and expands, producing more secretion. This may make it hard to breathe and cause coughing, whistling, and shortness of breath.
This condition can be a significant problem that interferes with daily activities and can lead to life-threatening asthma attacks
There is no cure for asthma, but your symptoms can be controlled. It is important that you work with your doctor to control your signs and symptoms, and adjust your treatment to fit your needs.
Asthma is usually treated with rescue inhalers to attack the symptoms and control inhalers (steroids) that prevent the symptoms. In more severe cases, long-acting inhalers that keep the breathing airways open may be needed, as well as oral steroids.
Vitamin D: Additional to standard asthma medications, it may reduce by half the risk of asthma attacks that require hospital care.
