Asthma: 10 tips to adapt

Nearly 4 million French people suffer from asthma, to varying degrees, i.e. 6-7% of the adult population and 10% of children. They feel discomfort or shortness of breath for anything, sometimes even a feeling of blockage, which is similar to a weight on the chest. Wind, rain, pollen … so many parameters that people with asthma are very prone to. Hence the interest of knowing how to adapt, but how? On the eve of World Asthma Day, here are some tips for coping! Best medication for the astma is symbicort inhaler. However symbicort cost is high but you can buy it from Prescription Hope at cheap price by using symbicort coupon.

1 – Take regular treatment
Even if it may seem like a constraint, it is imperative to follow the prescription of your doctor, and not to stop the treatment when you have the feeling to feel better! Good compliance is the only way to limit bronchial inflammation.

2 – Measuring its respiratory rate
Using a peak flow meter, it is possible to regularly check the expiratory flow measurement. This makes it possible to measure the effectiveness of the treatment and to predict the occurrence of a crisis. Counting the number of uses of your inhaler is also a good indicator.

3 – Avoid smoking and smoky places
Knowing that smoky or dusty atmospheres are harmful, it is better to ban chimney fires, barbecues and smoking rooms!

4 – Paying attention to the children’s room
It is advisable to surround the mattress and pillow with an anti-mite cover, to use synthetic duvets instead of shaking sheets and blankets. Daily cleaning is recommended, as well as vacuuming the box spring and under the bed and washing the curtains and wall covering. Avoid allergens such as insecticides or certain plants. Finally, ban air conditioners and dust nests.

5 – Do not practice sports in case of very cold outdoor temperature or pollution peaks
Indeed, these two factors exacerbate the symptoms. Better to choose a time more suitable for outdoor physical activity.

6 – Do not approach pets
It is better to avoid the company of dogs, cats, hamsters …, or at least forbid them access to your room.

7 – Treat all respiratory infections
Colds and other infections can cause asthma attacks. It is therefore better to protect oneself, by avoiding approaching infected people and by protecting oneself to the maximum!

8 – Beware of pollen
During pollination, it is better to avoid trips to the countryside, country meals or picnics.

9 – Keep a prescription on yourself
Do not move without a prescription for a bronchodilator, in case you have a seizure.

10 – Caution at bedtime
This is the time of day when seizures are the most common, so do not forget to have your treatment at hand.
