I am 72 years old. Sometimes, I hear a whistling sound while breathing. Could it be asthma?

Older adults can develop asthma too. Some people develop asthma for the first time in later adulthood. Older people should not ignore problems with breathing, or assume that symptoms are just due to old age. One should tell the doctor about breathing problems, and get a thorough health checkup to rule out asthma and other medical conditions.
