If you or someone you care about suffers from asthma, then you may be wondering whether there’s some sort of cure out there or what you could do about it. There’s a lot you can do with our help at Allergy & Asthma Center! Reach out to us or read on to learn more about treating asthma and how we can help.
Asthma cannot be cured completely, no, but it can be controlled to the point that the symptoms become negligible. As a chronic and lasting condition, asthma is not curable. It is highly treatable, though, so long as a patient has professional support.
Many doctors believe there are actually different kinds of asthma with their own causes. It’s true that different patients have different triggers for their asthma, as well as different responses, so it’s likely that there are different causes and thus different treatments for asthma. Here at Allergy & Asthma Center, we can address asthma in a number of ways to alleviate our patients’ symptoms, sometimes almost entirely.
If you or a loved one has asthma, we can put together a comprehensive plan to treat it. This plan can address the particular allergens that affect you. Also, the frequency and severity of your symptoms will be factored into your plan.
It’s common for an inhaler to be used in an asthma treatment plan. It’s a portable device that can deliver a premeasured dose of asthma medicine into a patient’s lungs. Some inhalers have corticosteroids that can control swelling and irritation in the airway, while other inhalers have fast-acting drugs like bronchodilators which can help open up the airway quickly when necessary. A combination of medicines is possible. Inhalers are very effective for many patients, not just for seasonal use, but for daily use.
For some patients, a nebulizer can help, while for others, an oral medicine will help. Different medicines have different purposes, like reducing inflammation or helping to open up the airway, and it’s also possible to get an oral corticosteroid. Sometimes with more severe cases of asthma, a patient will benefit greatly from injections of a biologic medication (also known as an immunomodulator) that can reduce the patient’s sensitivity to allergens.
Some or many of the aforementioned treatments will be factored into your treatment plan with us at Allergy & Asthma Center. Together in your plan, the treatments can reduce or even relieve your symptoms so you can live the kind of life you’ve been missing.
There are some natural remedies you can consider, but only as parts of a comprehensive asthma treatment plan. Caffeine, choline, vitamin D, and some other remedies may help in addition to prescribed treatments. Because asthma is so serious and a flare up can be life-threatening, you can’t rely on natural remedies exclusively.
