Airway diseases include the diseases which lead to swelling in and around the airways called bronchus inside the lungs. This may be referred to as the bronchitis/ asthma/ bronchiectasis / COPD/ other associated lung disorders.
Diet and Asthma
The good news is that very few
people with asthma need a special diet. For
most people with asthma, healthy eating

includes plenty of fresh and unprocessed
food and is low in sugar, salt and saturated
Diet and TB
Treatment of tuberculosis can be of very
long duration with longer duration of
antibiotics. It would make sense to eat
right food to supplement the therapy and
to build good immunity. If you are or
remain underweight, you are likely to get
re infected or relapse with tuberculosis
again despite a good anti TB course.
The treatment of choice for obstructive sleep apnea is continuous positive airway pressure device (CPAP). CPAP is a mask that fits over the nose and/or mouth, and gently blows air into the airway to help keep it open during sleep. This method of treatment is highly effective.
