Asthma is a lung condition that can lead to emergency room visits, hospitalizations, and sometimes death, but death from well-controlled asthma is rare and preventable. Most people with asthma can have good asthma control. It is just a matter of paying attention to your asthma. Your healthcare practitioners can provide you with medications to help you control your asthma, but you can also do a lot of things on your own.

Making changes to your lifestyle to reduce your exposure to things that trigger your asthma symptoms is a large part of taking control.
