Asthma Self-Care and Control
How we help people with asthma rise above the complications of asthma
Helping you take control
Asthma is a chronic respiratory disease that causes inflammation and narrowing within the lungs, leading to restricted air supply. This can cause severe asthma attacks in some individuals. While there is no known cure for asthma, your Sunset Health provider can help you develop a plan to minimize the negative effects it can have on your life. By understanding what triggers asthma attacks, and making smart lifestyle choices, it is possible to lead a full and active life.
Research has shown that self-management can be extremely helpful in controlling asthma. Based on your symptoms and the severity of your asthma, we can help you develop a personalized action plan based on the following:
- Knowing your triggers and learn how to avoid them
- Understanding your options for medication
- Creating asthma-friendly environments
- Implementing an asthma-friendly diet
- Remaining active and fit despite your asthma
Ask your Sunset Health provider how you, or a loved one, can take part in this educational program.
