Asthma in women

Posted at 3:59 pm on 01/21/2015 by Powlin V. Manuel
More women than men develop asthma symptoms as adults. One reason behind this increase in incidence of adult-onset asthma in women is the development of symptoms around the menstrual periods. The severity of symptoms of asthma is also higher in women around the premenstrual periods (52%). This is high compared to men experienced severe asthma in only in 30% of self-reported incidence of adult-onset asthma (Rao, C.K. et al, 2013). Asthma is a disease of the airway in which contraction of the tubes of the respiratory system occurs in response to many factors. As we discussed earlier, allergy is one of the triggers. Other triggers to include are: changes in temperature, humidity, barometric pressure, immune response to infections and irritants, and as the current report suggests, the response to hormonal changes.
