What is Asthma Control Test

The Asthma Control Test (ACT) is a quick and easy way for doctors to check how well their patients with asthma are doing. The test has five questions that the patient can answer by themselves, and it helps to show if their asthma has been under control for the past four weeks. The questions are about things like feeling short of breath, coughing, and how asthma affects daily life.

Scorers assign test results from 5 to 25, with higher scores indicating better asthma control.

Doctors can use the test results to help decide what treatment is best for the patient and how to manage their asthma better.

Is asthma considered a disability?

Asthma can sometimes be considered a disability depending on how severe it is and how much it affects someone’s daily life and work.
The law protects people with disabilities from discrimination and ensures that they have the right to accommodations to help them work.

It may be considered a disability if asthma significantly affects someone’s work and they require assistance, but it depends on the individual situation.

What are the top support group for asthma patients in the UK?

In the UK, there are some groups that help people with asthma, including Asthma UK, the British Lung Foundation, BLF Breathe Easy, and the National Asthma and Respiratory Education Centre (NAREC). These groups offer different types of support like helplines, online communities, local support groups, education and training for healthcare professionals and patients.
