Do you know your Asthma Score? Find out today and discuss with your Pharmacist.
Asthma is a chronic respiratory disease affecting 2.3 million Australians, and 1 in 9 children. In WA, there are 250,000 people affected with asthma.
Asthma Australia are providing an online tool called ‘Asthma Control Test’ which allows users to take control of their asthma, and be provided with instant feedback and advice. The clinically validated self-assessment tool will help people determine their level of asthma control.
Your Asthma Score = Your Level of Asthma Control
Even if you think your asthma is under control, knowing your Asthma Score is still important as your Asthma can change over time.
If your asthma has been poorly or partially controlled, the good news is that you can take steps to improve your asthma management and if your asthma has been well controlled, it’s important to stay on top of it so you can continue to live well.
