Bronchial asthma is a common chronic disease that requires attention and constant monitoring because of the high likelihood of all kinds of complications.
The disease can not be completely curable, however, when creating certain conditions, the disease can become almost invisible and does not cause any discomfort.
Causes of asthma
The cause of asthma is contact with a specificAllergen. The occurrence of suffocation can be facilitated by domestic mites, dust, animal hair and tobacco smoke. Asthma can also be triggered by doing sports in the cold, infection, or the presence of parasites in the lungs. The substances released as a means to protect the pulmonary membrane from the harmful effects of incoming air are called histamines, which reduce the permeability of membranes, causing bronchospasm and swelling that stimulates sputum production.
The number of people who develop asthma is growing every year.
Most often, asthma occurs in childhood. Four times the risk of developing the disease in children whose parents smoke in the presence of a child. Another factor is heredity, which excludes cure. There is also a risk of developing the disease in poor living conditions and a heavily polluted city.
Asthma withdrawal symptoms
The disease is not curable andToday, there is no effective therapy to get rid of the disease. However, you can exclude the symptoms of the disease by getting rid of the allergen that causes asthma attacks, or from an infection that affects the lungs. Some people have asthma due to stress.
The creation of psychological comfort in the treatment of asthma is important for both children and adults.
Along with getting rid of the allergen, you needUse prescribed drugs designed to block the release in the body of substances that impede the breathing of a person. For this, bronchodilators and hormones are used that relieve bronchospasm and provide relief until the next attack of oxygen shortage. These drugs are not able to cure, and therefore patients with asthma have to regularly purchase these drugs in case of exacerbations.
With improper treatment and disregard for adviceThe doctor's bronchial asthma can go into a more serious stage. The prescribed drugs are aimed at getting rid of the symptoms with minimal damage to the lung tissue.
Medicines can remove the symptoms of the disease until the next contact with the allergen that causes the attack.
Criticism of applied methods of treatment
In modern medicine is widely criticizedApplied method of treatment of the disease. Some researchers argue that the elimination of bronchospasm with hormonal steroid drugs leads to an increase in the burden on the lungs and their further damage, which makes it impossible to be treated. Anyway, for today there is no alternative therapy, which allows completely to exclude the possibility of occurrence of a repeated attack of asthma and completely to be cured.
