Dubai: World Asthma Day on May 7; it’s crucial to shine a light on asthma management, triggers, and prevention strategies. Asthma, a chronic respiratory condition affecting millions worldwide, demands our attention and action.

Managing asthma is not just about having quick-relief inhalers on hand; it’s a comprehensive approach that involves understanding triggers and adopting preventive measures. From environmental factors like pollution and allergens to lifestyle choices such as smoking and exercise, identifying and mitigating triggers is key to controlling asthma symptoms.

Education plays a pivotal role in empowering individuals with asthma to take charge of their health. Patients, caregivers, and healthcare professionals must collaborate to ensure effective management plans tailored to individual needs. This includes regular check-ups, medication adherence, and staying informed about new treatment options.
