Asthma and other lung conditions such as COPD affect the small tubes that carry air in and out of your lungs, making it difficult to breathe.

These conditions are a common problem. Respiratory issues are often related to genetics, but environmental exposures like where you live or the seasons can also play a big role. 

Symptoms of asthma and lung disease can range from mild to serious, with some of the most common being a persistent cough, shortness of breath, difficulty taking deep breaths, reduced exercise tolerance, chest tightness, wheezing and dizziness. However, it’s important to note that you don’t need to have all these symptoms to be diagnosed with a respiratory condition. 

There are a number of triggers that can exacerbate or bring on your symptoms, such as exercise, respiratory infections, seasonal changes, smoking, cold weather, pollution and allergies.

There are a number of medications that are used to effectively treat asthma and lung disease, both preventative and acute treatment at the time of attack. These treatments are aimed at minimising symptoms and improving overall lung function. Good control of your condition is considered to be when reliever medication is used very minimally or not at all.

What is asthma?

Asthma is a chronic medical condition that affects the airways leading to the lungs, causing them to become inflamed and narrower. When the airways are inflamed, it makes it harder to breathe in and out.

Asthma affects people of all ages, though it often starts at childhood. Wheezing, coughing, difficulty breathing and tightness in the chest are common symptoms of asthma, ranging from mild to severe. Certain things can trigger asthma attacks and worsen symptoms, such as cold air, respiratory infections, exercise or allergies.

What is COPD?

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a chronic inflammatory lung disease that is typically caused by long-term exposure to irritating gases or cigarette smoke. Emphysema and chronic bronchitis are the two most common conditions that contribute to COPD. 

Symptoms of COPD include difficulty breathing, wheezing, chronic coughing and mucus production. COPD can be a progressive disease that gets worse over time, but is manageable with treatment. 

It is important to avoid smoking to prevent development of COPD and also disease progression.

FAQ

Can you exercise if you have asthma?

While physical activity can be more challenging when you suffer from asthma, it’s important to know that increasing your heart rate can actually improve asthma symptoms. Raising your heart rate can boost your lung power and stamina, which works to reduce breathlessness. Activity will also help you stay within a healthy weight range, which can decrease your risk of suffering from an asthma attack.

When does my condition need to be reviewed by my doctor?

If you notice that you start to need your reliever medication more, it’s time to speak to your doctor to review and optimise your asthma or lung management plan.
