We’re pleased to guest blog today for Lauren’s Hope. Our company, Molekule, was born because a father wanted to help relieve his son’s asthma, which was often triggered by pollutants in the air. He was frustrated by the other air purifiers on the market, and decided to invent another solution. That’s why at Molekule, we’re passionate about air quality and want to bring clean air to everyone. If you have allergies and asthma, we especially want to reach out to you about ways you can improve your indoor air quality.Read More

A few weeks back, we shared some information about asthma here on the Lauren's Hope blog. As we usually do when we post about a specific condition, we asked our fabulous readers to write in and share their own stories with us. This time around, we heard from Jennifer McGlothlin (right), who explained that she wears Lauren's Hope medical ID bracelets because she lives with asthma that doesn't quite present the way most people expect.
In the US alone, at least 25 million people live with asthma, a chronic lung condition in which the passageways through which air normally travels to and in the lungs become inflamed and constricted. This chronic condition causes a sensation of tightness in the chest of varying severity, and it also creates shortness of breath, coughing, wheezing, and gasping. While asthma generally presents in childhood and continues throughout a person’s life, some people do develop asthma later in life.
Why Do People With Asthma Need To Wear Medical ID Jewelry?
Asthma is a fairly common condition, slightly more prevalent in children than adults and more common in girls and women than in boys and men. Nearly 8% of the US population has asthma, although the severity of the condition varies by person. As well, the prevalence varies regionally and by ethnic group.
