Asthma is not just a childhood condition

A new survey has suggested that, its a common belief that asthma is a condition only associated with childhood. Asthma is one of the most common long-term conditions affecting people in the UK. The disease can develop at any age. Research indicated that around 40% of people with asthma develop the condition in adulthood. it can be life-threatening if symptoms are not recognised and corrected. However, around two-thirds// of those surveyed thought asthma was only a children's condition. Only 4% were aware that is a common problem in those aged 50 or over. Furthermore, while 88% knew that wheezing was a common symptom, 42% did not realise that a persistent cough that is worse at night or in the early morning, or shortness of breath are also common symptoms that indicate poorly controlled asthma.

There seems to be a commonly held misconception that asthma only affects children. The condition not only affect all ages, it can start for the first time at any age. It may be the case that many people have asthma but don't realise they have it. It is vital people recognise the symptoms early in order to get appropriate treatment. If the condition goes untreated, it can lead to a downward spiral of poor health and an increased risk of long-term lung damage.
