(OPEN):
MORE THAN 20-MILLION PEOPLE IN THE U-S HAVE ASTHMA.  AND, UP TO 10-PERCENT OF THEM HAVE A SEVERE FORM.  DOCTOR DAVID SLADE--PULMONOLOGIST AND NATIONAL ASTHMA-EXPERT, AT "GLAXO-SMITH-KLINE"...

(SLADE):
"
ASTHMA CHANGES OVER TIME.  AND, PEOPLE OFTEN DON'T REALIZE IT--UNTIL IT STARTS TO IMPACT THE THINGS [THAT] THEY DO EACH DAY.  WHEN PATIENTS TELL ME [THAT] THEY WORRY ABOUT DOING HOUSEHOLD-CHORES, RUNNING ERRANDS, OR TAKING A WALK--BECAUSE THEY FEAR ANOTHER ASTHMA-ATTACK--I REFER TO THAT AS THEIR 'ASTHMA A-HA!'-MOMENT: THE REALIZATION THAT THEY MAY NEED TO RETHINK THEIR ASTHMA, AND SEEK HELP.  IF SHORTNESS-OF-BREATH, WHEEZING, OR COUGHING IS CAUSING YOU TO LIMIT EVERYDAY ACTIVITIES, IT COULD BE DUE TO UNCONTROLLED OR SEVERE ASTHMA:  GETTING THE RIGHT TREATMENT--AT THE RIGHT TIME--IS IMPORTANT, BECAUSE REPEATED FLARE-UPS COULD LEAD TO LUNG-DAMAGE.  IF YOU'RE TAKING MEDICATIONS--BUT STILL EXPERIENCE FLARE-UPS--TALK WITH YOUR DOCTOR, ABOUT HOW ASTHMA IS AFFECTING YOUR LIFE."

(CLOSE):
MAY IS "NATIONAL ASTHMA- AND ALLERGY-AWARENESS MONTH":  IF YOU'VE HAD AN "ASTHMA A-HA!"-MOMENT, VISIT "ASTHMA"-DOT-COM; DOWNLOAD THE "ASTHMA E-GUIDE" FOR QUESTIONS TO ASK YOUR DOCTOR, TO GAIN BETTER CONTROL AND TRACK YOUR ASTHMA.
