Adult Asthma Symptoms and Treatment

Question:  I have always thought that asthma is just for kids.  I’m 34 and I just found out I have asthma.  Can someone possibly start having asthma later in life?

It’s true that children are most likely to suffer from inflammation of the lungs which causes asthma.  Roughly 90% of the cases are detected before the sufferer reaches the age of 16, as the constant monitoring by parents as well as children being easily distressed help identify the condition.

However, it is certainly possible for someone to become asthmatic in their 30’s or 40’s and only then will they be diagnosed with the illness.  While someone can suddenly suffer asthma – due to a prolonged exposure to asthma causing agents such as specific chemicals or allergens – most often, late-diagnosis asthma is not due to an instantaneous development of the condition.  Usually, if the symptoms take about 20 or 30 years to appear, it may relatively be minor and has not caused much of a problem for the sufferer until then.  This is quite uncommon, and simple things such as relocating to a more polluted surroundings, or starting on a new job which involves constant exposure to chemicals may allow a long-hidden asthmatic condition to manifest.

The forecast of adult-diagnosed asthma is very good, only if you are set on learning how to utilize inhalers and how you can cope with the condition.  Educate yourself as much as you can about the condition as it is always better to be safe than sorry.
