Asthma and Other Conditions

  • Living with COPD and Asthma

    If you have COPD and asthma, you know that they cause similar symptoms.

  • The Sinusitis and Asthma Link

    Many people who have asthma also suffer from chronic sinusitis.

  • Rhinitis

    Rhinitis is a reaction that occurs in the eyes, nose, and throat when airborne irritants such as pollen or mold trigger allergy symptoms.

  • Oral Health and Asthma

    If you have asthma, does your dentist know? This is important for good oral health, especially if you use a corticosteroid inhaler.

  • Emphysema and AAT Deficiency

    The first symptoms of AAT deficiency usually are shortness of breath, wheezing following activity, and a decreased ability to exercise.

  • Allergies and the Immune System

    Most allergic reactions are a result of an immune system that responds to a "false alarm."

  • Asthma and Pregnancy

    With proper asthma management and good prenatal care, most women with asthma can have healthy pregnancies.

  • Inflammation Key to the Asthma-Sinus Connection

    Researchers think they’ve found the reason that people with asthma get so many sinus infections.
