Product Description

From Amazon

Like most asthma sufferers, you probably stumbled onto the disease, completely incognizant of why you suddenly couldn't do something as simple as breathing. For the estimated 14.6 million Americans who suffer from asthma and related allergies, the American Lung Association's Family Guide to Asthma and Allergies is the essential aid in preventing and treating asthma. The first chapters walk you through the underlying causes of asthma. They identify common triggers and explain the biochemical reactions these triggers set off in the body in easy-to-understand terms, clarifying the interconnected relationship between asthma and other allergies. The rest of the book offers thorough, practical instruction. A chapter on allergy-proofing your house leaves no dust mite or speck of pollen unaccounted for. Each chapter provides checklists to help you manage everyday situations, such as educating the babysitter, preparing for a vacation, or even teaching your child how to use different medications and gradually learn how to control his or her own condition.

From Library Journal

Especially helpful for those newly diagnosed and for parents with asthmatic and allergic children, this practical book is well designed with lists, questions, tips, and personal stories. It identifies common triggers, explains how to allergy-proof your home, and reviews unconventional testing and treatments. Includes a good resource list. (LJ 6/1/97)
