Disease Management Monthly Highlight

Asthma

Asthma is a lung disease that affects people of all ages. People who have asthma have trouble with their airways, which can make it hard to breathe. When you have asthma, there are things that can cause you to have an attack. These are called “triggers.” Some common triggers are:

  • Smoke from cigarettes or wildfires
  • Perfumes or other fragrances
  • Dust
  • Air pollution
  • Pets
  • Cockroaches

Some people have asthma attacks when they exercise. Others have allergies that can trigger an attack. Talk to your primary medical provider (PMP). With medication, a healthy lifestyle and the help of your PMP, most people with asthma can live a normal, active life.
