Breathing better, feeling better with an Asthma Allergy Specialist in Crystal Lake

Asthma sufferers are becoming so common, that is estimated more than 25 million Americans, including 10 million children have some form of asthma that interferes with their daily lives. Wheezing, coughing, shortness of breath and chest congestion or tightness can all be serious signs of asthma. Dr. Noga Askenazi, Dr. Eugenia Hahn and the team of professionals at Advanced Allergy & Asthma Associates and Food Allergy Center of Illinois hope to turn this epidemic around by doing their part to help those dealing with asthma. It is very important to get help as soon as possible. Most people who develop asthma have people in their families with the disease as well and it can torment lives, leaving some people helpless.

Asthma can not only be exhausting, but the way it interferes with lives is common but unique in some ways. Not everyone responds the same to identical medications and inhalers may not work for everyone. Multiple treatments can occur before symptoms begin to decrease. The unfortunate part about asthma is that it is only treatable at this time. No cure has been produced but it is possible science may find a better resistance in medication that will work for all types of asthma. Today, we are able to better control attacks by noticing the signs sooner.

Dr. Askenazi and Dr. Hahn are highly qualified specialists in asthma and want to eliminate symptoms early on to help best treat the conditions of asthma and attacks. When asthma attacks strike, there may or may not be obvious triggers around you. Not everyone has been able to avoid all triggers that flare up the disease. It is possible to reduce the triggers significantly with the help of medications and inhalers with proper use. Asthma causes inflammation in the lungs and airways, causing many disturbing and painful signs leading to an attack. With quick response, the effects are lowered and recovery can begin.

At our center, we work on helping eliminate your asthma attacks and work to avoid further damage with the right medications and follow ups. Consistency is important for keeping asthma under control. We invite you to come in for a consultation and see how we can help your life change for the better with asthma control therapy.
