Asthma Increasing in Older Adults

Asthma isn't just a disease diagnosed in children. According to the July 2002 issue of Mayo Clinic Health Letter, it is increasingly common in people over age 65. And it can be serious. A recent Mayo Clinic study found that over 40 percent of older adults with asthma are hospitalized at least once for asthma or related conditions.

Asthma Symptoms
Asthma is primarily related to an inflammation of the airways in your lungs, which makes breathing difficult. Though there is no cure, asthma can be managed. Check with your doctor if you experience these symptoms:

  • Episodes where breathing is difficult (These episodes might be triggered by exercise, cold or exposure to pollen, dust, pet dander or smoke.)
  • Unexplained coughing or wheezing most of the time
  • Wheezing or coughing while sleeping, which wakes you up
