1) Knowing What You're Asthma Triggers is Vital To Gaining Control.
Approximately 85% of asthma is associated with allergic triggers. Animals, dust, change of season, thunderstorms, and pollens will often trigger an asthma attack. Avoidance measures like using dust mite covers for your pillows, removing feathers from your bed, repairing leaks and knowing when you use your inhalers can often make the difference between being symptom free and an asthma attack. Uncontrolled nasal and sinus allergies are often the spark that leads to uncontrolled asthma. Speak with your allergist about a comprehensive plan for tackling your asthma and allergies.
