If the lung function test was suggestive of asthma and hopefully you had skin tests to find the environmental triggers, the most important thing would be to get your asthma under control.
Combination inhalers will be the choice such as Symbicort turbohaler if budesonide
400 has not helped. You must keep asthalin (or the blue salbutamol
) inhaler with you at all times and take 4-6 puffs as required but maximum 10 puffs at one go.
10mg addition at night will also significantly help.
You also need to know the current status of your immune system with IgG, IgA and IgM levels and functional antibodies
against Hib, pneumococcus and tetanus if available. These tests if normal exclude an antibody deficiency
, as these control recurrent chest infections (bronchitis).
You will also need a yearly influenza jab due to your asthma.
Hope that helps.
