Asthma affects people in different ways. In some people it is worse and they have a lot of trouble breathing, while others don’t have as many problems with their asthma. Everyone who has asthma should get help from their doctor, we are here to help.
Once your doctor tells you that you have asthma, we will see whether you are at low risk or high risk for problems. If you are low risk, we will give you information to help you take care of yourself. If you are high risk, a nurse will call you to talk about your illness. The nurse will talk with you about:
- Taking care of your asthma at home
- What causes asthma attacks
- Why taking your medicine is important
- How to better through lifestyle changes
If you need help taking care of your asthma, we can help. To learn more about our disease management programs, please call 1-866-642-1579/TTY 602-659-1144 (6 a.m. to 8 p.m.).
