The cause of asthma varies greatly and depends on its condition. The term cause of asthma is actually less precise, because it is not agreed by all health experts/experts. Like the cause of cigarette, smoke pollution, dust, animal feathers and hot and cold air can not directly cause the infection of asthma.
These causes indirectly encourage the stimulation of the lungs in asthma sufferers. This resulted in narrowing of the respiratory tract. But the occurrence of narrowing will not occur in the lungs of normal people, but immediately occurs in asthma sufferers.
Therefore, in diagnosing a person suffering from asthma, a doctor usually also sees a thorough history of his health. Usually doctors will tend to formulate this asthma cause with a trigger factor.
The mention of this trigger factor is more precise because of those factors that trigger asthma. In other words, it can also be called that an asthma trigger factor is something that triggers a person until asthma suffers.
The triggering factor of asthma in general can be differentiated into two things, what are the factors, the trigger factor is:
- Factors in sufferers (intrinsic)
These factors include genetic aspects (heredity), allergies, abnormal airway which causes narrowing (easily aroused by delicate objects), gender, and certain racial/ethnic groups.
- Environmental factors (extrinsic)
Environmental factors are all things that exist in the environment that is the trigger factor of asthma. This environmental factor is often not aware of the cause of asthma because of the unhealthy lifestyle of society. Including:
- Weather changes (from hot to cold or vice versa)
- Small objects from indoors like small zoo, roaches, house dust. As well as small objects in the outdoors including mushrooms, smoke, pollen.
- A strong, stimulating, odors
- Certain foods with preservatives, flavoring, and other additives.
- Cigarette smoke
- Unstable emotional conditions (angry, depressi, sad exaggeration, excessive delight)
- Too heavy physical activity
Well after we know the trigger factor of asthma it is very good to anticipate it by applying a healthy lifestyle.
We further to the discussion of asthma symptoms. Actually, what are the symptoms of asthma. In general there are nine symptoms/signs that are most easily recognizable by everyone. Including:
- Difficulty breathing and often breathless when doing a rather heavy activity.
- Mengi (or sound ngiiik.. Ngiiik… The sufferer with an old tempo and continuously.
- Often have coughs, whether accompanied by phlegm or not. Because the cough itself signifies something goes wrong with the respiratory tract.
- More sensitive to Allergies
- The lungs are not functioning normally
- Unable to run long physical activity without experiencing respiratory problems
- Difficulty sleeping due to frequent cough or waking due to chest tightness
- Always feeling lethargic and tired. This is due to reduced oxygen supply throughout the body
- Chest tightness due to narrowing of the respiratory tract due to certain stimuli. Consequently to pump oxygen throughout the body should be extra hard (forcing) so that the chest becomes congested
Once we know the causes and symptoms of asthma we must also know how to overcome the asthma
Well if we are exposed to one of the symptoms of the above points then it is worth noting that we may suffer from asthma and at times can experience asthma attacks. For that I recommend to take care of doctors and undergo a check-up to ensure our health condition. To know the easiest way to prevent asthma you can see the article here
