Living with Asthma?

Asthma 22 sm image

In the UK 5.4 million people are receiving treatment for asthma…

That's 1 in 12 adults and 1 in 11 children. According to Asthma UK, the lives of three families are devastated by the death of a loved one to an asthma attack every day and tragically two thirds of deaths are preventable.

A recent survey by Asthma UK found that up to a third of sufferers aren’t using their inhaler properly. This could lead to side effects or not receiving the correct dosage of medicine.

People most at risk include those with allergies or a family history of asthma. It’s often thought that only young people develop asthma, but actually it can appear at any age.

Symptoms of asthma include:

  • Coughing
  • Wheezing
  • Tight chest
  • Shortness of breath

Although not curable, asthma is treatable.

If you would like advice on how to use your inhaler or would like more information, your local Lincolnshire Co-op pharmacy will be happy to help.
