Occupational Asthma Follow-up
Asthma is a long-term disease, but it can be managed. Your active involvement in treating this disease is vitally important.
At your follow-up visits, your health-care practitioner will review how you have been doing.
Occupational Asthma Prevention
Treatment in occupational asthma is focused on preventing or minimizing asthma attacks. The main strategy for doing this is reducing or stopping exposure to the trigger.
Occupational Asthma Prognosis
Most people with occupational asthma are able to control their condition if they work together with a health-care provider and follow their treatment regimen carefully.
People who do not seek medical care or do not follow an appropriate treatment plan are likely to experience worsening of their asthma and deterioration in their ability to function normally.
