Do they do tests to make sure that you do have asthma?

I was told my daughter has asthma, but they didn't test her the Dr. just listened to her lungs.

  • If your child is under 6 years old, diagnostic tests aren't accurate. Here' s some helpful info from the Mayo Clinic...

  • my mom wasn't tested, she just started taking meds.
    i would rule out household cleaners, milk, red meat, and gluten as allergens before i would medicate for asthma.
