During the past decade, major scientific advances have occured in our understanding of asthma and associated diseases of the airways such as rhinitis and sinusitis. These developments have been accompanied by new, potent and safe medications and better drug delivery systems. As a result, most people with asthma and similar problems involving the nose, eyes and ears can now have their conditions completely controlled so that they no longer suffer from breathlessness, cough or wheeze. The end result is an improved quality of life for people who no longer need miss school, work or recreational activities. Conquering Asthma will show most asthmatics how to live a healthier and happier life, hardly aware that they have asthma. We hope that you will enjoy understanding and participating actively with your doctor in the self care of your disease.
