Calculate your asthma score to determine how well your treatments are controlling your asthma. The test is suitable for over 12 year olds. It considers how often you experience asthma symptoms and use medications to control them, as well as the severity of symptoms and how they impact on your life. Your doctor may use your asthma score to determine whether the medicine you are using is effective.

On Target - Your asthma may be well controlled but not TOTALLY CONTROLLED. Your doctor may be able to help you aim for TOTAL CONTROL.
