Chronic Asthma Treatments at Texas Lung Care

Asthma is a chronic condition characterized by shortness of breath, coughing, and chest tightness. It can be triggered by various environmental factors such as airborne allergens, irritants in the air, pollutants or extreme weather changes.  

Treating and managing asthma requires a comprehensive approach that accounts for lifestyle and environmental factors. At Texas Lung Care, we offer a range of treatment options including:

  • Steroid inhalers: These inhaled corticosteroids help reduce inflammation in the airways and prevent asthma flare-ups. 
  • Bronchodilator inhalers: These medications relax the muscles around your airways, allowing you to breathe more easily. 
  • Allergy medication: If an allergy is triggering your asthma symptoms, our team may recommend an allergy medication such as an antihistamine or intranasal corticosteroid to help reduce the severity of your symptoms. 
  • Immunotherapy: sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT) can be effective for treating allergies that trigger asthma. 
  • Biologic therapy:  Biologic therapy drugs offer new ways of treatment by targeting certain molecules in the body that contribute to asthma.

Each patient is unique, so our board-certified pulmonologists will work with you to develop a customized treatment plan that addresses your unique needs. We also provide comprehensive education and resources to help you understand your condition, learn how to manage symptoms, and take control of your life. 

Frequently Asked Questions

What can I expect during a breathing test for asthma?

A typical asthma diagnosis test, also known as a pulmonary function test (PFT), can help our team diagnose and evaluate your condition. During the test, you'll be asked to breathe into a device that measures the amount of air in your lungs, how quickly you can exhale and other factors related to your lung health. 

This test usually takes about 30 minutes and is performed in one of our comfortable, private rooms. Our team will provide detailed instructions before the test begins to ensure that you are as comfortable and relaxed as possible. Afterward, your results will be analyzed by a board-certified pulmonologist who can help determine the best course of treatment for your individual needs.

How often do I need to refill my asthma medication?

Your asthma treatment plan will depend on your specific needs, but if you’ve been prescribed medication for asthma attacks, it's generally recommended that you refill your medication every 3 months. You should also see a pulmonologist for regular checkups to monitor your condition and make sure that your medications are working as intended. 

Do you accept insurance for chronic asthma treatment?

Yes! Texas Lung Care Associates accepts select plans from a wide range of insurance providers across the state of Texas. See our full list of accepted providers on our Insurance page, and don’t hesitate to reach out to us with any questions.
