Bronchial Asthma or asthma, in short, is a widespread, serious respiratory disease. This condition is a chronic, long-lasting disease that can occur at any age. It affects five percent of adults and ten percent of children worldwide. In contrast to children, where asthma symptoms are usually allergic and not permanent, 30 to 50 percent of adults endure bronchial asthma as a chronic, inflammatory disease of the respiratory tract and not as an allergy. In both cases, asthma patients suffer from unpleasant, dangerous shortness of breath.
This respiratory tract disease cannot be cured. However, the symptoms of asthma can be alleviated and controlled through medication. There are two different types of asthma, namely allergic and chronic. At Apomeds, you can order an online follow-up prescription for the most effective products that combat the symptoms of asthma!
In the case of allergic asthma, the immune system reacts excessively and fiercely to external stimuli. Also, you may experience strong reactions to allergy-inducing substances in the environment, the so-called allergens, like pollen, house dust mites, and animal hair or mold spores. The immune systems of healthy people who do not suffer from asthma do not respond to these harmless substances. However, the body of a person with allergic asthma reacts with extreme resistance to these allergens, the respiratory muscles cramp and breathing is severely impeded. An allergy to pollen is also referred to as a seasonal allergy, since symptoms usually only occur in certain seasons, mainly during spring and summer.
Unfortunately, bronchial asthma is not seasonal and there is no cure for this disease. In people with chronic asthma, the bronchial system is permanently inflamed, over-excited, sensitive, and in constant readiness to defend itself from various external factors. Just like in the case of allergic asthma, the bronchi and bronchioles of an asthmatic are hypersensitive to harmless external stimuli and influences (allergens, smoke, or dust) and react with an extreme defense response of the respiratory tract. During an asthma attack, your lower respiratory tract narrows, the mucous membranes in the bronchial walls swell and a lot of persistent mucus develops, which you can only cough up with difficulty.
As a result of an acute narrowing of the lower respiratory tract, the main symptoms of bronchial asthma include
The symptoms of bronchitis, bronchial carcinoma, or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease are similar to those of asthma, but asthma persists throughout life.
