Q: Anna, Shanghai, China

A: “Asthma is a respiratory disease. It manifests itself primarily as inflammation of the airways, and constriction of the airways, primarily the bronchial tubes in the lungs. Patients may have various “triggers” for their asthma, or things that cause this constriction or inflammation. Often it might be allergens to which they are exposed. Stress is also often an asthma trigger. For me, I’ve had asthma since I was a 1 year old boy. I was allergic to various foods (grapes, chocolate, eggs, peas, peanuts and other nuts, etc.) and to various plants (trees, grass, flowers) and airborne pollutants (smoke, dust, perfume, etc.). ”
