Types of Asthma

Many people mayn’t be aware but there’re more than one type of asthma depending on the conditions that trigger the disease & many other factors. They’re as follows: Extrinsic/Allergic Asthma Most asthmatic patients suffer from this disease. This condition is triggered by allergens (substances that can cause allergic reactions). Some of the most common allergens are: pollutants, wood dust, pollen, animal dander, chemicals and smoke. Brittle Asthma A person suffering from this form of asthma may change from feeling relatively well to having quite severe difficulty breathing very rapidly. People with brittle asthma also tend to be those who have relatively frequent asthma attacks, and in between acute attacks may have ongoing symptoms such as coughing and wheezing which may require quite large doses of medication to keep them under control. Status Asthmaticus This is an acute aggravation of asthma that does not respond to standard treatments of bronchodilators (drug that causes widening of the bronchi) and steroids. Symptoms: chest tightness, rapidly progressive dyspnea (shortness of breath), dry cough, labored breathing and extreme wheezing. Exercise-Induced Asthma If you cough, wheeze or feel out of breath during or after exercise (even when you’re physically fit), you could be suffering from exercise-induced asthma. As with other types of asthma, a person with exercise-induced asthma will experience difficulty in getting air in and out of the lungs because of inflammation of the bronchial tubes (airways) and extra mucus. People with other types of asthma may show symptoms of exercise-induced asthma, but the ones who suffer from the latter disease mayn’t display any signs while they’re not exercising. Mark Spitz won nine swimming gold medals during the 1972 Olympics and he suffered from exercise-induced asthma.
