When Is Asthma Considered Severe?
In the United States, almost 25 million people live with asthma, a chronic condition that makes it harder to breathe by causing swelling and excess mucus production in the lungs. Most people are easily able to manage their symptoms, but 5 to 10% of people have a more difficult-to-treat form of asthma that causes more severe side effects and complications.
