What causes Asthma?
Allergies are a common cause of asthma symptoms and you may experience an asthma attack when exposed to a substance that triggers an allergic reaction. It can be triggered by cold or dry air, air pollution, some medication, stressful situation that heighten emotions, preservatives, and other chemicals found in processed foods, environmental or occupational chemicals or pollutants, the onset of the menstrual cycle, family history, smoking and being overweight. Patients with asthma may experience difficulties that often cause chest tightness, coughing, wheezing, or whistling noises when inhaling or exhaling. Here in Allergy & Asthma Center, we are committed to helping you treat and manage your asthma. We will help you determine whether you simply need over the counter remedies or prescription inhalers and anti- inflammatory medications.
COPD or Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease is a group of progressive lung diseases. The most common are emphysema and chronic bronchitis. Emphysema slowly destroys air sac in your lung which interferes with outward airflow. Bronchitis causes inflammation and narrowing of the bronchial tube, which allows mucus to build up. Symptoms may be coughing, shortness of breathing, wheezing and chest tightness. The top causes of COPD are smoking and long term exposure to chemical irritants. There is no cure for COPD but with treatment we can help ease symptoms, lower the chance of complications and generally improve quality of life.
