Conclusion Asthma cannot be cured, but the symptoms can be controlled and because it changes over time, it's important that patients work with their provider to track your signs and symptoms and adjust treatment as needed (Mayo Clinic, 2018). The goal of treating asthma is to control the symptoms. The use of pharmacotherapy and the stepwise approach helps providers manage the disease.
