You will have some blood tests, to check, for example, the function of your immune system, and if your medications are being absorbed properly. We have patient information leaflets with more details about lung function tests, echocardiograms and CT scans.

You can find these patient information leaflets on the 'Information' tab. 

Asthma is a common lung condition that causes occasional breathing difficulties. There is no cure for asthma but in most sufferers, available treatments keep their symptoms under control.
