Asthma Treatment at Forum Health
Our Approach to Asthma Management
Types of Asthma
At Forum Health, we provide support for various types of asthma, including:
Allergic asthma is triggered by exposure to allergens such as pollen, dust mites, pet dander, or mold. Individuals with allergic asthma may experience symptoms when exposed to specific allergens that trigger an immune response and inflammation in the airways.
Non-allergic asthma can be triggered by factors other than allergens, such as respiratory infections, cold air, exercise, smoke, or strong odors. While non-allergic asthma shares similar symptoms with allergic asthma, the underlying triggers may differ.
Occupational asthma develops due to exposure to irritants or allergens in the workplace, such as chemicals, dust, fumes, or gases. Symptoms typically improve when individuals are away from work but worsen upon exposure to the triggering substances.
Symptoms of Asthma
The symptoms of asthma can vary in severity and frequency but may include:
Wheezing (a whistling sound when breathing)
Coughing, especially at night or early in the morning
Shortness of breath, especially during physical activity or at rest
Chest tightness or discomfort
Difficulty sleeping due to nighttime symptoms
Fatigue or reduced exercise tolerance
