Pulmonologist Dr.Ketankumar Chaudhary's  Response
ASTHMA IS ALLEGIC DISORDER SO ITS DIAGNOSIS IS MADE BY
1. CLINICAL EXAMINATION : FOREIGN SOUNDS.
2. PULMONARY FUNCTION TESTS
3. CBC + ABSOLUTE EOSINOPHIL COUNT
4. TOTAL IG E.
THESE ARE HELP IN DIAGNOSIS OF ASTHMA.
SYMPTOMS OF ASTHMA : DRY COUGH AND DYSPNEA MORE ON LATE NIGHT EARLY MORNING, RUNNING NOSE, RECURRENT ON NATURE AND EPISODIC ON EXPOSURE TO ALLERGANS.
