Each person has bronchial asthma individually. The signs of such a disease are the same, however, the severity of seizures and symptoms is different for everyone. This depends on many factors, and the most important among them is the age of the patient at which the pathology began its development. Forecasts are different for different age groups.
For children who have not reached puberty, the forecasts are most favorable. The main reason for this is the immunity that has not yet been formed.
Predictions of bronchial asthma in children and adolescents
As you know, young children are not able to fight on their own with many diseases, because their body is not yet strong enough. Therefore, often this pathology is difficult for them, but the symptoms of bronchial asthma can become weaker over time, provided that its treatment was carried out as efficiently and regularly as possible.
But this does not always happen. In some situations, asthma is accompanied by pronounced seizures that pose a serious danger to the health and life of the baby. Unlike adult patients, children can “grow up” from the age when the symptoms of this disease were difficult for them. For this, before the onset of puberty, it is necessary to carry out prophylaxis and appropriate treatment of bronchial asthma on the advice of a doctor. In most cases, this circumstance also helps at an older age, because often asthma simply temporarily ceases to bother.
However, the effects of asthma in children are unpredictable. The disease may recede, but may remain. But even if the pathology disappears, patients will still have deviations of the immune status and disturbances in the respiratory system. This problem does not go away without a trace.
Forecasts of bronchial asthma in middle-aged and elderly people
In elderly and middle-aged people, predictions of bronchial asthma are most often predictable. The severity of the course of the disease is greatly affected by the lifestyle that patients lead. However, this is not a major factor.
Often the severity of asthma depends on its shape. For example, with classical allergic bronchial asthma, several nuances can be distinguished. So, if dust acts as an allergen, then the course of the disease is more severe than with “pollen” asthma.
In older people, the pathology of the respiratory system is almost always difficult. This is especially true for patients with aspirin bronchial asthma.
