Breathe Easier, Live Better

One in 13 Americans (over 25 million people) live with asthma. Asthma is a disease affecting the lungs which causes wheezing, breathlessness, chest tightness, and coughing. While there is no cure for asthma, there are ways you can help manage the frequency of asthma attacks (also known as "episodes"). Successful asthma management includes knowing the warning signs of an attack, avoiding things that may trigger an attack (such as second hand smoke, pollen, dust mites, and household pets), and following the advise of your healthcare provider.

Make sure you are up to date on vaccinations that help protect your health. Respiratory infections like influenza (flu) can be very serious for those with asthma, even if their asthma is mild or their symptoms are well-controlled by medication. Flu can trigger asthma attacks and make asthma symptoms worse, and is more likely to lead to other infections like pneumonia. Getting the recommended vaccines will help you and your loved ones with asthma stay healthier.
