7 Common Myths & Facts About Asthma

Myths or Facts

#1 Myth: Asthma is only when there is troubled breathing.

#1 Fact: Asthma is a disease that can be life threatening and is difficult to predict. Even without visible symptoms, there is underlying inflammation in the airways in people with asthma. Asthma is not cured when the symptoms are gone. It is important to keep your asthma in control by taking your prescribed daily medicines and avoiding asthma triggers.

#2 Myth: Asthma is all in your mind.

#2 Fact: Asthma is involvement of the airways and lungs, not in the mind. Emotions, such as stress, crying, yelling or laughing hard, can act as asthma triggers causing already existing asthma toworsen.

#3 Myth: Asthma symptoms are the same for everyone.

#3 Fact: Asthma can affect each person varying from wheezing, chest tightness, and fatigue in some to mild cough in others.

#4 Myth: Children often outgrow their asthma.

#5 Myth: Steroids used in asthma are dangerous.

#5 Fact: Inhaled corticosteroids (ICS) are the preferred treatment for persistent asthma. When used at recommended doses for most patients, the benefits of ICS outweigh the risks. These steroids are NOT the same as the anabolic steroids some athletes use to build muscle.

#6 Myth: Steroids used in asthma will stunt growth.

#6 Fact: Inhaled corticosteroids do not stop children from achieving their full height. Studies have shown that children using inhaled corticosteroids will reach normal adult height, although it may cause some delays in their growth early on. On the contrary, children with uncontrolled asthma are at higher risk of stunted growth.

#7 Myth: Asthmatics should not engage in sports or other physical activity.

#7 Facts: Aim of treatment of asthma is to make the person as fit and active as the person of same physical stature and age without asthma. Infact, sports and physical activity are as important for someone with asthma as they are for someone without asthma.
