Asthma is a chronic lung condition that can be controlled very well but not cured (yet!). People who have asthma do best with regular preventer medication, stepping down or reducing to just a short term reliever inhalers when more stable. We love to talk about asthma at Preston Family Medical as treated well you will have minimum interruptions to you health and life however ignored and not treated and there can be significant health risks.
As asthma is a chronic disease, it can change over time, even over one year. Seasons, air pollution, other illnesses can all have an impact.
