Re: Life span of asthma sufferers
I think it depends on how the person has managed his/her asthma.
Asthma is, as some say, a vicious-cycle disease. Bad lifestyle habits, serious airway inflammation, airway remodeling, side effects of strong medications and complications of asthma. Without doubt, we have to take steps to break out of the vicious cycle as early as possible.
Early intervention is effective to prevent the airway remodeling.
Medical science is making advances. New effective and safer medications will come out. Perhaps comletely new approaches to asthma treatment might become available in the near future, considering that the research on gene and
asthma, stress and asthma and diet and asthma is going on.
Of course, good management is the key. Knowledge saves. Be well.
