What are the signs of asthma?

"A history of asthma can identify patients with symptoms suggestive of eosinophilic asthma. There have been suggestions that atypical asthma is more prevalent in women, and that in men the lung is less tender. In our unit, males who are in the 30 years range are more likely to have atypical asthma. The lack of a family history of asthma may have a diagnostic value for atypical asthma." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

Can asthma be cured?

"Asthma can be controlled and a cure may be achievable in some patients with appropriate treatment. The use of inhaled steroids, with the option of oral controller medications, may significantly improve the disease control of both allergic and nonallergic asthmatics. The ability of inhaled steroids to prevent disease exacerbations should allow some of the asthmatics to stop their inhaler treatment and improve their overall health." - Anonymous Online Contributor

How many people get asthma a year in the United States?

"About 6 million children in the United States have asthma. Children with asthma tend to have chronic illnesses in their first year of life.

Unverified Answer

Have there been any new discoveries for treating asthma?

"The study concludes that some of the medications known to affect the bronchial asthma are still used nowadays. Still some are only used in some areas within Asia. This could be due to the fact that other countries in the world are not using it, but this could be the cause that some of these medications are used in some countries. In order for these medications to be used in other countries other options could be looked into. For example, inhaled steroids might be used at home for those who aren't able to reach their doctor's office, or they are too young to get the drugs. Asthma medications are available to be taken by mouth, but since some people are intolerant of them, the injections into the airways are helpful." - Anonymous Online Contributor
