Asthma Testing

Allergy and asthma tests are a way to get to the bottom of what’s causing your asthma symptoms as they help your practitioner determine if allergies trigger your asthma. Many people with asthma are allergic to tiny particles (allergens) that they breathe in. Examples of airborne allergens are the pollens of grasses, trees, and weeds, spores of molds, animal dander, and dust mites. This is why asthma testing is extremely important in determining what your triggers may or may not be.

Day-to-day inhalation of allergens to which you are sensitive can worsen the inflammation of the bronchial tubes in asthma. Additionally, it can cause your asthma to become more active (meaning that you are more likely to be troubled by cough, wheeze, shortness of breath, chest tightness, or nighttime awakenings from asthma symptoms) and make you more likely to have a serious attack of asthma.
