What Causes Asthma?

Although there is no single cause for asthma, allergies seem to play a significant role in at least 2/3 of patients. Genetics and family history are also important. Pollution, environmental tobacco smoke exposure, respiratory infections, and exposure to strong scents or chemicals can also play a role.

There are two major components of asthma that result in the symptoms described above. Inflammation, often caused by allergies, results in swelling and excessive mucous production inside the airways (breathing tubes inside the lungs also called bronchioles). This swelling and mucous makes it difficult to breathe. The inflammation also causes muscles that surround the bronchioles to become “twitchy” so that they contract or squeeze the breathing tubes making it even more difficult to breathe.

Treatment for Asthma Phoenix

Fortunately, most cases of asthma can be controlled. Achieving control requires a comprehensive approach, which includes identification and avoidance of known asthma triggers, and in some cases the use of medications or allergen immunotherapy (allergy shots) to control the inflammation. Skin testing may be performed to identify potential allergic triggers and lung function testing (asthma testing) may be performed to help guide therapy. The providers at San Tan Allergy & Asthma will do their best to formulate a comprehensive treatment plan to control your (or your child’s) asthma.
