|Good asthma control||Difficult to control asthma|
A small proportion of people with asthma, around 5%, will still have difficulty controlling their asthma even though they are following all the advice and taking all the medication correctly. This can be very challenging for you and your respiratory team. Referral for specialist hospital review and further specialist testing is sometimes required.
Take careful notes of when your asthma is at its worst or any conditions which increase your symptoms. This information can be useful for the specialist team to pin point causes. Working in partnership with your asthma team is key.
