Get the Whole Story

What you know: Asthma affects one of the most important organs in the body—the lungs.1

What you might not know: The condition causes inflammation in all airways of the lungs, both large and small. These airways carry air in and out of the body. Treating inflammation in both the large and small airways may help in managing asthma symptoms.1

Do you also know?: It's possible to have inflammation even when typical signs of asthma, like wheezing and coughing, are absent.1

If you or your child has been diagnosed with persistent asthma, you may need to treat that inflammation every day.1 That’s why it’s important to know the whole story about managing persistent asthma.
