How Asthma Is Diagnosed

Diagnosis of Asthma requires evaluation and testing. During your consultation, we will:
  • Take a medical history that reviews if any members of your family have asthma or allergies, such as hay fever, hives or eczema
  • Ask you about your attacks, how often they happen and what seems to trigger them
  • Perform a physical exam
  • Measure airflow entering and leaving the lungs
Other tests such as chest X-rays, blood tests or allergy tests, may also be needed.
