Children with asthma can lead normal, healthy and active lives if their asthma is diagnosed and properly managed. If asthma is diagnosed and treated early, permanent changes in your lungs or your child’s lungs can be prevented.
People of all ages have asthma, but it most commonly begins in childhood. Often, it has not been diagnosed in childhood and you will be diagnosed as an adult. Here is some information that you should know about asthma.
While asthma does not usually “go away,” it can be controlled with an accurate diagnosis and with medications. Your child can live a normal, active, healthy life if asthma is properly managed and under control.
