Asthma is indeed a common but often underdiagnosed and mismanaged disease across India. Asthma is a chronic respiratory condition characterized by inflammation and narrowing of the airways, leading to recurring episodes of breathlessness, wheezing, chest tightness, and coughing. These symptoms are often triggered or worsened by various factors, such as allergens (pollen, dust mites, pet dander), respiratory infections, cold air, exercise, and exposure to irritants like smoke or strong odors.

The role of allergy testing in asthma management is crucial, especially for patients with allergic asthma. Allergy testing helps identify specific allergens that trigger asthma symptoms in an individual. This information allows healthcare providers to develop personalized management plans, which may involve allergen avoidance strategies and immunotherapy (allergy shots) to desensitize the immune system to the allergens over time.Timely and accurate diagnosis, along with appropriate treatment, is crucial for better outcomes and improved quality of life for asthma patients.

An allergen or irritant in the environment usually triggers an asthma flare-up. There is no cure for asthma. Some asthma flare-ups can be prevented. Asthma can be treated with lifestyle changes and medication. Untreated asthma can become severe and life threatening. People can control their asthma with self-management and medical treatment. Most people with asthma can lead normal lives.
