Asthma Curable

Program Aims to Reduce Indoor Asthma and Allergy Triggers

FRESNO, California - Asthma and allergies are conditions that impact millions of Americans.

In the San Joaquin Valley, one of six children have asthma, one of the highest rates in the state of California.

May is Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month, a month dedicated to educating people about the conditions. 

While pollen and air pollution can make symptoms worse, there are many indoor triggers that are less known. 

"It becomes a habit for us to see our homes as a safe space," said Central California Asthma Collaborative Policy Advocate Angela Islas.

The CCAC's free program called the Asthma Impact Model, or AIM, focuses on addressing indoor air quality concerns. Through the program, volunteers from CCAC will visit homes and provide a free indoor air quality inspection. They look at things like air filters, cracks in the walls or floors and leaks near pipes. All those problems could be triggering you or your family's asthma or allergy symptoms. 

Is asthma curable permanently?

When I was little I had really bad asthma I used to get sick a lot and basically I spent most of my life at hospitals because of this. I moved to the USA when I was 9 and the asthma completely went away is there an explanation for this?
I'm 16

Im no doctor (im im too lazy to google heh) but i dont think its actually curable but i think mayhaps you can get to a point where its not a problem. Like guy above me said i think as you get older (depending on your lifestyle of course) you can be in

my brother had it bad as a child, but as he got older it got less prevalent and he hasnt many problems with it anymore. so i guess the older u get the stronger the lungs got maybe

Well asthma cannot be cured, but it can get stable and attack will not appear very often, usually asthma attack is cause by the environment, some people are more sensitive to dust and will have more attacks, it various. Its good that you have no asthma

Do think that asthma will ever be curable?

I hope so, I was diagnosed with it about two months ago, and I can't stand it, even with all the medications I take.
I get so mad at myself when I start to feel self-pity; I think about how I'm lucky enough not to have cancer or AIDS, but it never

I sure hope so too, I've been on asthma medications for twelve years and it's terrible. The worst one by far is prednisone.
