Diseases Asthma


Asthma is a common chronic inflammatory disease of the airways characterized by variable and recurring symptoms, reversible airflow obstruction, and bronchospasm.[1] Symptoms include wheezing, coughing, chest tightness, and shortness of breath.[2]

What happens during an asthma attack?
  • The muscles around your airways tighten up, narrowing the airway.
  • Less air is able to flow through the airway.
  • Inflammation of the airways increases, further narrowing the airway.
  • More mucus is produced in the airways, undermining the flow of air even more.
Clinically, some factors have been found out to be the cause of bronchial asthma. A list of these factors is given below :
  • Allergens such as molds, animal dander, grass, certain fibers, pollen of flowers, hair, lint and particular food grains,
  • Certain food colorings and preservatives such as monosodium glutamate (ajinomoto salt),
  • Drugs such as aspirin, non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, b blockers, etc. and Changes in the weather.
