Asthma Treatment

At Bluegrass Allergy Care we provide asthma treatment for all members of the family. In fact some types of asthma are hereditary, so if one member of the family has asthma, others may also.

We also specialize in treating asthma in young children, including toddlers and infants. We understand that while asthma in children can be especially difficult to diagnose, catching it early is incredibly important to the health and safety of the child.

Our Treatment Process

  1. Consultation
    For each new patient we conduct a detailed consultation to understand the history of their symptoms and the variety of environmental factors encountered at work, school, and home.
  2. Examination
    We perform a physical examination to understand your current health and symptoms.
  3. Testing
    Based on the findings from the consultation and examination, asthma tests may be performed to evaluate your lung functionality. If necessary, x-rays may also be taken.
  4. Education
    We teach you how to safeguard yourself from the things that trigger your asthma, what to do when an asthma attack occurs, and how to prevent additional health problems.
  5. Management
    We work with you to develop a treatment plan for effectively managing your asthma. Your plan may include medications if necessary. Follow up office visits are important to monitor your health and modify your treatment to accommodate life’s changes. Bluegrass Allergy Care is one of only a few offices in Central Kentucky that can test the effectiveness of your asthma treatment with an exhaled nitric oxide test
