Asthmatic patients, who do not take their treatment regularly, run the risk of asthma attacks which often lead to hospitalization and the attacks could be life-threatening. It is important to diagnose asthma at an early stage as it helps preserve the condition of the lungs. Asthma usually manifests itself with symptoms like coughing, tightness in the chest, and wheezing; but in case of recurring symptoms - asthma could be the most probable diagnosis and then it is advisable to consult a doctor at the earliest. Currently recommended treatment can control asthma completely and asthmatics can lead a normal, active life.
