Filed under: General HealthAsthma is quite the complication these days -- with my guess being that most sufferers from mild cases of asthma not even knowing they have the condition. Well, that is, unless running or some other activity exposes it.
According to a new survey released this week, asthma was not controlled in 55% of Americans with moderate-to-severe forms of the disease. That's over half! Although many of those had health insurance and regularly visited doctors, they were not receiving any treatment for their asthma conditions.
My guess? Most folks don't even know they have asthma, even though mild cases could be kept at bay or turn tragic in some odd circumstance. If you think you may even have a mild case, see your doctor and really try to determine if you have any form -- mild or otherwise -- of asthma.
