Asthma not just a childhood condition

In a recent survey conducted in the UK most people believe that asthma is a condition only associated with childhood. Around 40% of people with asthma develop the condition in adulthood and it can be life threatening, if symptoms are not recognised and managed in early stages. Asthma can occur in an individual for the first time at any age. There also exists a possibility where many people don't realise they have asthma.// 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. It is vital people recognise the symptoms early in order to get appropriate treatment. If the condition goes untreated, it can lead to poor health and an increased risk of long-term lung damage.
