Talking to your doctor

Let’s get the conversation started

Feel like you’re doing everything you can for your severe asthma and it still isn’t enough? It’s important to be open and honest with your doctor about your symptoms to make sure you’re on a treatment plan that’s right for you. Because, if you have severe asthmaespecially the eosinophilic typeyour primary care doctor may need to refer you to an asthma specialist, like a pulmonologist or allergist.

Here are some topics to talk to your doctor about at your next appointment:


The times when your asthma symptoms worsened or you experienced an asthma attack, also called an exacerbation.

Oral steroids

The times when you had to take oral steroids (like prednisone) to help manage your asthma.

Daily activities

The times when your asthma interfered with your day-to-day life.

If you’re ready for a different kind of asthma treatment, ask your doctor about blood testing to measure your eosinophil levels.
