It is not recommended to smoke, especially if you have asthma. Some of the side effects include medicine becoming less effective and worsening of symptoms associated with asthma.

If the asthma medication is cortisol (steroids), side effects are weight gain (upper back, chest and neck regions) and reduced immunity.

Short term effects of asthma include wheezing, a shortness of breath and a cough. The long term effects include inflammation of the airways, increased mucus and tissue scarring.

No, not really, but Prolonged is sort of a word to use when someone has a dragging illness or something. Good question. Something that is longterm is permanent but something that is prolonged will go on for a while and eventually stop. EX: the longterm effects of smoking are____. The Prolonged illness went on for 3 years but then it was cured.

Asthma is not just a shortness of breath, but it can lead to many other physiological effects on the body including long-term lung damage and lung failure. You can start early by monitoring your asthma and blood oxygen saturation with a pulse oximeter.

There has not been any significant medical research to prove that suffering from asthma has adverse effects on a person's lifespan.

Both effects are the same depending on the severity of the Asthma. Asthma in the bad sense can cause weakening of the lungs and severe breathing difficulties such as needing home oxygen treatment all the time etc.

Alcoholic use effects the body in many ways. If used before age 21, it can cause certain brain abnormalities, and brain damage. Eventually, certain adverse consequences would begin, including, but not limited to: - Alcoholism (Addiction to Alcohol) - Liver disease - Cirrhosis - Sexual dysfunction - Heart disease - Increased risk of cancer - Increased risk of CNS Damage (Central Nervous System) with sustained use. These are only some of the physical effects that sustained, longterm alcohol abuse/addiction. There are more physical and psychiatric effects that longterm alcohol abuse/addiction could cause, including, but not limited to: - Anxiety - Depression - Psychosis There is no scientific evidence suggesting that there are any major longterm effects to be experienced with longterm marijuana use to date.

Asthma is a chronic disease that affects the lungs. The disease inflames and narrows the airways in a person affected. Asthma effects all ages, but is usually present in childhood. It is usually controlled by inhalers and nebulaziers. If someone has an asthma flareup, they will need to be taken to the emergency for immediate treatment. Asthma can not be cured

Asthma is a chronic condition that occurs when the breathing tubes become blocked. There are various classifications of asthma, but one factor remains consistent: asthma caries severe side effects that can interfere with having a normal lifestyle. During an asthma attack, there is pain, tightness and discomfort in the chest. These attacks can occur at any time and may be worsened when exposed to certain allergens or physical activity. Sometimes trips to the hospital are necessary. Fortunately, modern medicine has come a long way, and many people are able to control their symptoms and prevent flare-ups.General Effects of AsthmaWhen considering what the typical effects of asthma are, it's not uncommon to consider physical symptoms only. After all, asthma attacks can be painful, uncomfortable and put unnecessary strain on the body. When the airways become tightened, coughing, shortness of breath and wheezing can occur. But there are other effects of asthma to consider than just physical ones. Asthma carries many emotional and social effects that people often fail to realize. Even though there are many medications out there to reduce swelling and inflammation and control everyday allergy symptoms, people with asthma live in fear of what's to come. These feelings are closely related to how severe the asthma is, the person's individual coping skills and the available support.Dealing with the Social and Emotional Effects of AsthmaMore specifically, the emotional and social effects of asthma include fear, anxiety, hypervigilance and denial. Often times, people spend their time worrying about when their next flare-up will occur and anticipating the worst. It's not uncommon for people with asthma to have a fear of dying as well. Fortunately, there are effective ways to help people cope with the effects of asthma. Having a maintenance and treatment plan in place is critical and helps people feel like they have some control over their condition. Relaxation and meditation techniques, a strong support network and an acceptance of the condition are all ways to help relieve the burden of the physical, emotional and social effects of asthma.
