Asthma affects more than 20 million adults in the U.S. and up to 10 percent of all asthma patients have severe asthma – in fact, each day 10 Americans will die from asthma. If people with asthma feel anxious about doing household chores, running errands or taking a walk because of fear of another asthma attack, this may be their “asthma Aha!” moment signaling a need to find out if asthma is a bigger part of their life than they think.

Not everyone experiences asthma the same way and symptoms can change over time. Even if someone thinks their asthma is under control, it might not be and it may be a more severe form of asthma. If a person with asthma has made one or more trips to urgent care, the emergency room or a hospital; experienced two or more asthma attacks in a year; or has symptoms that cause wake ups at night and interfere with daily activities–now is the time to  consider the reason why.
