In 2020, changes were made to the New Zealand guidelines around how asthma in adults and teenagers should be treated. It has been shown that for most people, (even those with mild or exercise induced asthma) that making a simple change in the type of inhaler and how and when you use it, may reduce asthma symptoms in day-to-day life. This change can also reduce the risk of serious asthma episodes which is really exciting!
The new changes also make asthma treatment much simpler by using only one type of inhaler even when your asthma is playing up.
Please book an appointment to see one of our nurses or doctors to discuss how we can work together to improve your asthma symptoms.
