More than twenty million people in the United States suffer from asthma, a disease of the lungs. In fact, asthma is the most common serious chronic disease among American children. Any person at any age can be affected by asthma, but more cases have been linked to factors such as increased air pollution, exposure to tobacco smoke, and childhood obesity. Without preventive treatments and lifestyle adjustments, asthma . . . can be a serious, even deadly disease," reports USA TODAY, the Nation's No. 1 Newspaper. Fortunately, if a person is diagnosed properly, asthma symptoms can be managed. In this book, you will read case studies of people with asthma and how they handle the disease. Also included is up-to-date information about the common symptoms of asthma, how it is diagnosed, risk factors associated with the disease, and different forms of treatment. All of these facts can help you learn about the disease and what can be done if you or someone close to you has asthma.
