Overcoming Rare Disease, Severe Asthma, Burns, and More
This episode of The Balancing Act is jam-packed! We’ve got tips for severe asthma, as well as a check-in with chef Ralph Pagano and a Behind the Mystery segment.
Did you know that 22 million people live with asthma in the U.S.? Among them, five to 10 percent suffer from a condition called severe asthma. Open and clear communication with your healthcare provider plays a key role in controlling asthma symptoms. Learn effective ways to treat and manage asthma with the Allergy and Asthma Network.
Next, take a look at chef Ralph Pagano’s work with Jackson Health’s Burn Survivor Support Group, where burn patients talk about their experience and help each other heal.
Then, on our recurring segment Behind the Mystery: Rare and Genetic, we explore Neurogenic Orthostatic Hypotension (nOH). NOH is a rare disorder defined as low blood pressure that occurs upon standing. However, the symptoms of nOH are often mistaken for something else. Stay tuned to learn more.
