Asthma and Allergies
The Asthma and Allergies Diagnosis Information Page is a collaborative project of NeedyMeds and the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America. It is intended to provide information on Asthma and Allergies and to help people with Asthma and Allergies find assistance paying for their medications.
Nearly 26 million Americans suffer from asthma. Asthma is characterized by inflammation of the air passages resulting in the temporary narrowing of the airways that transport air from the nose and mouth to the lungs. Asthma symptoms can be caused by allergens or irritants that are inhaled into the lungs, resulting in inflamed, clogged and constricted airways. Symptoms include difficulty breathing, wheezing, coughing tightness in the chest. In severe cases, asthma can be deadly. Currently there is no cure for asthma, but with proper treatment and care it can be managed.
The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for people with asthma and allergic diseases through education, advocacy, and research. AAFA provides practical information, community based services and support to people through a network of Regional Chapters, Support Groups and other Local Partners around the U.S. AAFA develops health education, organizes state and national advocacy efforts and funds research to find better treatments and cures. In addition, AAFA's website provides online access to AAFA's reliable, validated asthma and allergy information and tools to families, patients, parents, healthcare providers, policymakers and others. AAFA works to ensure that all people with asthma and allergies can live a life without limits.
