Asthma is a common inflammatory disease of the airways. Symptoms include wheezing, coughing, chest tightness and shortness of breath. It affects 7% of the United States, 5% of British people, and a total of 300 million worldwide. Athsma also causes 250,000 deaths per year worldwide.
I am not a specialist but I know you can get it after you have been exposed to irritants for a long time that cause your immune system to over-react. Sadly so many children already have asthma, caused by anything from smog to food to baby powder. As for myself, I usually do not suffer from asthma, h…owever I seem to have an episode of a few months every decade following a severe cold with bronchitis. The type that is viral and bacterial. This predisposition was probably acquired while I worked in a carpenter shop for a few years (dust, glass fibre). theres usually 2c in the air but when theres 5c (like in Cuban cigars) in the air, people would inhale it and that's how people get asthma Asthma is something you are born with and you can't catch it. It never goes away and is a non curable disease. ( Full Answer )
Asthma is a gene in your family such as:ancestors,your mother,your father.etc.....which would be passed down through generations.So it depends.
Hi Brother, What is asthma? Asthma is a long-lasting (chronic) disease of the lungs and airways (bronchi) that affects 5 people in every 100. In children, this figure is higher and rising. Asthma is characterised by attacks of breathlessness, tight chest, wheezing and coughing which are… caused by the airways becoming narrowed and inflamed. Some people may have these symptoms all of the time and others may be normal between attacks. How do you get asthma? Asthma can arise at any age, but why some people have the disease and others don't is not known. People with asthma have airways that are more sensitive than normal. . Doctors know, however, that asthma can sometimes run in families. . Asthma attacks can be set off by many different things, these are called triggers. Examples include cold air, vigorous exercise and stress. . These triggers may also include 'allergens'. These are present in the environment and contain chemicals that trigger allergic reactions. . Allergens include, for example, pollen, animal danders, house dust, pollution, some foods, perfumes and cigarette smoke. . Allergens cause the lining of the airways to become swollen and inflamed. It produces extra mucus and the muscles of the airways tighten. There is then less room for the air to pass in and out. . Attacks may be more frequent or severe in people who have a chest infection.

Infectious disease, also known as a communicable disease or transmittable disease, is contagious. This means that you can catch it by some sort of contact, such as touching. An example of an infection disease is the flu, you can be infected with the flu if you have contact with an individual who has… the flu. Non infectious disease, also known as a noncommunicable disease is not contagious. This means that you will not catch by any sort of contact. These diseases are usually caused by either genetics or environmental causes. An example of a noninfectious disease is cancer. ( Full Answer )
You can get asthma by feeling chest tight or wrestling or even coughing too much maybe because someone in your family has it so if these symptoms come up call your doctor or tell your people you may have asthma.
First you need to know symptoms & Causes of Asthma : Asthma Symptoms: Coughing, Chest Tightness, Shortness of Breath,Difficulty in Breathing, wheezing, Increased Heart Rate & more. Causes of Asthma: Smoking, Allergies, Pollution, Dust Mites,Infections, Cold Wind, poor Digestion, Food Allergies, We…atherConditions. Asthma should be treated in the right way, so that asthmatic peoplemay live a normal life more actively. The first step to relieve an asthma attack is to use yourquick-acting bronchodilator (such as albuterol). The usual dose is2 puffs, breathed slowly and deeply. In a sudden severe crisis ofbreathing, you can safely use as many as 4 puffs at a time. Undernormal circumstances, it is usually recommended that you use yourquick-relief bronchodilator no more than 4 times a day. To treat anasthma attack, however, you can safely use it as often as every 20minutes for as long as 2 hours, if needed. If available, acompressor with nebulizer can be used in the same way, every 20minutes for several doses. The major side-effects to anticipate area jittery feeling and racing of the heart. Asthma is a disease of the lungs. Snow mountain garlic also helpsto reduce Asthma disease. Eat a Snow Mountain Garlic Capsule Daily OR Add 3 cloves of garlicto a pot of hot water. Boil it for 5-7 minutes. Let it cool andthen drink. By joshihealthcare(dot)com ( Full Answer )
Asthma is a breathing disorder, in which when your allergies act up, your throat gets swollen and makes it harder to breathe. this is also refereed to as an "asthma attack", or a sudden break of asthma from allergies.
No. Asthma is predominantly hereditary and cannot be passed-on by using an asthma pump, kissing or by any other known contagions or personal contact that has been identified to date.
Answer . Aids is a transmitted disease. One has to have it in order to pass it onto another person. So, if one did not have the disease, they would be non-infectious. So, probably not.

A non infectious diseases can not be transmitted to other humans. Non-infectious diseases are those diseases that are not caused by a pathogen and cannot be shared from one person to another. Diseases caused by these organisms are infectious diseases . There are many kinds of non-infectious d…iseases. . A non-infectious disease is a disease that may be caused by either the environment, nutritional deficiencies or genetic inheritances. Some examples include; Environmental causes such as skin cancer from radiation (from the Sun), or lack of food (e.g. scurvy from lack of Vitamin C ), genetic disorders , or any source other than an infection . They can also be caused by drugs and carcinogens ( cancer -causing agents). . Non-infectious diseases cannot be spread from person to person as in infectious disease, but can be passed down genetically in some cases such as hemophilia in the royal blood line. . Historically, infectious diseases were the main cause of death in the world and, indeed, in some developing regions this may still be the case. With the development of antibiotics and vaccination programs, infectious disease is no longer the leading cause of death in the western world. . Non-infectious disease is now responsible for the leading causes of death in both developed and some developing countries. . There Hope Your Happy :D ( Full Answer )
It is a disease that you have from when you are born it is not contagious it is a disease that close up the passage ways to your lungs making them smaller and its harder to breath but over time when you are older it can go away it can if you are young to but you have to fight it and be really active….

instric asthma is when you dont need an inhaler exinstric asthma is when you do need an inhaler. Traditionally, doctors have divided asthma into two general categories, Extrinsic (allergic) asthma and Intrinsic (non-allergic) asthma, depending upon the types of stimuli that trigger attacks.. Extri…nsic asthma is caused by an immune system response to inhaled allergens such as pollen, animal dander or dust mite particles. An allergen (or an antigen) is a foreign particle that enters the body. The immune system over-reacts to these often harmless items, forming antibodies, which are normally used to attack viruses or bacteria.. Intrinsic asthma is not allergy-related and is caused by anything except an allergy. It may be caused by inhalation of chemicals such as cigarette smoke or cleaning agents, taking aspirin, a chest infection, stress, laughter, exercise, cold air, food preservatives or a myriad of other factors.. The terms intrinsic and extrinsic asthma have now been replaced by terms related to the asthma trigger, since the inflammatory response of the airways is the same independent of the cause of the asthma. What was known as extrinsic asthma is now called allergic asthma, while asthma triggered by non-allergic factors, formerly called intrinsic asthma, is separated into such categories as exercise-induced asthma and occupational (chemical- induced) asthma.. Inhalers may be prescribed for both allergic asthma (extrinsic) and non-allergic asthma (intrinsic). ( Full Answer )
Non infectious diseases are spread by the environment, bad nutrition, genetic inheritance, and hereditary diseases.
Celiac disease is not infectious. It is, however, genetic, so often when one family member gets diagnosed, others follow, which might give the wrong impression that it's contagious. Three things are necessary to trigger classic celiac disease: the presence of gluten in the diet (wheat, rye, barle…y, perhaps oats); having the gene for it; a stressful triggering event (pregnancy, illness, and courses of antibiotics are often associated with the onset of active celiac disease).

Huntington's disease is a genetic disease (not carried by an infectious vector) and so, it is not infectious .
asthma is currently recognized as a noninfectious disease. Asthma is considered a "reactive airway disease," meaning basically that the airway is reacting to some type of irritant. Asthma attacks can be triggered by many things such as allergens, cold air, or exercise. These irritants cause inflamma…tion in the airway walls and mucus production, which can narrow the airway and make breathing difficult. Interesting question however, as some newer data has actually supported infectious etiologies such as chlamydia as a possible underlying cause of asthma... but not proven yet. ( Full Answer )
Pathogens only cause INFECTIOUS DISEASES. Non infectious diseases are caused by inheritance, nutritional deficiencies or through the environment (substance abuse).
Yes, schizophrenia is a noninfectious disease, meaning that it cannot be spread to anyone else.
Non-infectious disease is a disease that may be caused by either the environment, nutritional deficiencies or genetic inheritances.

They can also be caused by drugs and carcinogens (cancer-causing agents). Many diseases of affluence and mental disorders are non-infectious diseases. All genetic disorders are non-infectious. Other examples include: - Cardiovascular disease - Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease - Hypertension - Diabetes mellitus type 2 - Down syndrome - Attention deficit disorder - Anorexia nervosa ( Full Answer )
it usually depends on what type of flu you are talking about. but for example, swine flu is infectious because you can spread it to someone else.
No, you either grow into it or you are born with it. You can't catch it like a cold!!
Infectious, which is also called contagious, spreading, passed, caught, transferred, transmitted, and "shedding virus". That is how it became a pandemic (spread all over the world quickly) in 2009. See the related question below about how swine flu spreads.
noninfectious because its a brain disease and i dont think you would be able to develop with everyday contact with the person..
noninfectious diseases dont "spread" as they are "caused by either the environment, nutritional deficiencies, lifestyle choices, or genetic inheritances. Unlike infectious diseases, non-infectious diseases cannot be spread from person to person, although some kinds can be passed down genetically to …the children of a carrier." ( Full Answer )
AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome) is a diagnosis and not a disease. HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) is the virus that causes someone to develop AIDS.
Diabetes, both Type 1 and 2, are classified as noninfectious diseases because Diabetes is not an infection. Type 1 Diabetes occurs due to the pancreas not working and being able to supply the body with enough insulin to balance the body's carbohydrate count when eating food.
Heart attack, stroke and most of the cancers are but few examples of noninfectious diseases.
Noninfectious diseases are not spread from one person to another. Many are chronic diseases, which means they can last for a long lime. The answer is chronic.
Diabetes, both type 1 and 2 are developed from the body's unbalance to insulin, a chemical required to process energy/sugar and etc. This unbalance or inability is caused by genes/lack of exercise and over-consumption. Thus it is an noninfectious disease. Since you can only pass on your genes to you…r children and the others are controlled by you. ( Full Answer )
There are dozens. Diabetes, Huntington's Disease, most forms of Cancer, Scurvy, Sickle Cell Anemia, etc.
when you have asthma you will have to use prescription medicines to help with your breathing, i personally take salbutamol.
Infectious diseases involve a causative organism, from groups such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, and such. Noninfectious diseases involve causes other than specific infectious organisms.
The common cold is infectious. It is a upper respiratory infection caused by a virus.
The common cold (also known as nasopharyngitis, acute viral rhinopharyngitis, acute coryza, or a cold) (Latin: rhinitis acuta catarrhalis) is a viral infectious disease of the upper respiratory system, caused primarily by rhinoviruses and coronaviruses.
Wilms tumor is a cancerous tumor (noninfectious). It is a leading cause of cancer in young children, affecting the kidney and its development.
It is mostly genetic.But also pollution is a triggering factor.Staying in clean environments inside out may help not getting it.
Yes, very infectious! scarlet fever is most common in children and children with scarlet fever are not to go to school.
It definitely makes you very shaky and weak and isolated fearing the attacks also very careful to avoid the allergic factors.
you can get it from the air.you can be asthma because of your pillow because it has dust so put it under the sun twice a week.Change your curtains too.You can totally get asthma from the dust and smoke of cars
An example would be lung cancer. An infectious disease is caused by a parasitical organism.
you cannot catch diabetes from someone else with it.... you get it if the insulin in your body isn't being produced or if your body isn't using it
Asthma is a disease affecting the airways that carry air to andfrom your lungs. There are special drugs that help cure asthma.
Quarantine is only good for conditions that are spread from oneperson to another. If the disease is caused by something else, theneveryone can get it whether they are in quarantine or not. Forexample, malaria; you can only catch it from mosquitoes and noquarantine would be helpful.
Chickenpox is an infectious disease because it has an etiologic agent or a microorganism that caused the disease. it can also be transmitted from one person to another.
Yes, Crohn's Disease is noninfectious. Nobody's quite sure what causes Crohn's disease, but we do know that it is noninfectious.
The flu, also known as influenza, is an infectious viralrespiratory disease. It is contagious, caused by RNA viruses, andaffects birds and mammals.
Congenital disorder is noninfectious disease. Although it may be a result of infection by some infective agent like rubella virus, during first trimester of pregnancy.
These are two different viruses. HIV causes AIDS and it is infectious. Influenza causes a severe upper respiratory infection. It is also infectious. People with HIV have a problem with fighting off any other infection and they are prone to get influenza. You can't get HIV from some one with influen…za. HIV is only passed by sexual contact. You can not get HIV from someone who has HIV and influenza by getting influenza from that person. These are two different viruses. HIV causes AIDS and it is infectious.
