Australia seems to be in limelight for all the wrong reasons. Recently, a survey was being conducted by the National Asthma Council of Australia, and from there it has been revealed that Australians suffering from asthma are not taking care of their health.
The nationwide online survey has found that 95% asthma patients do not think that they need any of kind of medication, but 87% of them have suffered breathing problem and asthma attack in last one year. In addition, 60% of them have said that they witness asthma attack, after every six months.
In total, 1,011 people were being surveyed and after assessing them, it was revealed that Australians do not take their health complications quite seriously.
Health experts were of the view that it is very important that asthma patients take their health seriously and take proper treatments. The number of asthma sufferers in Australia is on the rise, as more than two million people in Australia have been suffering asthma.
"There is an alarming difference between adults' perception of their asthma management and the reality", said Noela Whitby, who is the associate chairman of National Asthma Council. Therefore, it is necessary that asthma sufferers should not ignore their health.
