Asthma is a chronic lung disease that inflames and narrows the lung’s airways. The condition causes a recurring set of symptoms including wheezing, chest tightness, shortness of breath, and coughing — all of which make breathing difficult.
Asthma cannot be cured, but it can be managed through medication and knowing what particular things will trigger an attack for you.
Over time, the effects of uncontrolled asthma, such as increased inflammation and asthma attacks, may have long-term effects on your breathing leading to permanent damage to the lining of your airways.
Dr. Nader Mahmood and North Jersey Pulmonary Associates will work to develop a customized treatment plan that’s right for you. That includes performing a series of pulmonary function tests, helping you to identify your asthma triggers, and prescribing a medication regime that may include oral medications and inhalers.
With two convenient locations in Secaucus and Totowa, NJ, Dr. Mahmood and his staff are dedicated to keeping your asthma symptoms at bay so you can live the life you want. Use online booking now, or call the office to schedule an appointment.
