Asthma is a lung condition that affects 23 million Americans, including 6 million kids. People with asthma may cough, wheeze, or have trouble breathing. Anyone with allergies or a history of smoking is at risk, and you're also more likely to get it if you're obese. It’s diagnosed with a test called spirometry, which measures how much and how fast air travels through your airways.
