Asthma Allergy Centre Thrissur Kerala data when we analyze from the last 27 years shows that in Thrissur, Ernakulam, Kochi , Palakkad, Kozhikode and Malappuram asthma is becoming not only more frequently seen but also more severe in many patients.The prevalence of Allergy type asthma is increasing in Kerala. From our clinic records,we extrapolate that almost 20% of children and 10% of adults have some form of Allergy and Asthma .This is agreed by most Pulmonologists from Thrissur and Kerala.
Allergic Asthma is a often long lasting inflammatory disease of our pulmonary airways, in which our pulmonary airways narrow and swell and produce more sputum or mucus than normal. This makes our breathing difficult and trigger coughing, wheezing and shortness of breathlessness.
Since these symptoms could occur due to the other causes like COPD and many more Pulmonary Diseases also, a Pulmonologist would have to confirm the diagnosis by PFT testing and FENO testing.
