Asthma is a complex disease with many different causes & triggers. Sometimes asthma symptoms gradually get worse despite all efforts to control them, and one way that happens is when someone becomes allergic to Aspergillus. Allergic BronchoPulmonary Aspergillosis (ABPA) and Severe asthma with fungal sensitisation (SAFS) are two possible outcomes. This progression usually happens slowly and gradually so it is difficult to tell when the allergy began. This tool can help you assess if you need more help from your doctors, and what help may be available.
Asthma + Lung UK has developed an interactive tool to enable people with poorly controlled asthma to self-assess their likelihood of having severe asthma and ask for the support they need. This can be a useful way to find out if you could benefit from biologics (or other therapy).
