Diagnosing Asthma

Accurately diagnosing asthma allows you and your physician to begin proper medical treatment. Proper treatment will usually limit the development of severe asthma and allow you to lead a more functional life. In contrast, poorly controlled asthma may lead to permanent pulmonary damage resulting in lifelong chronic asthmatic symptoms. Seeking an accurate diagnosis of your condition is the first step in actively enhancing your well-being.
