Sajida Parveen, Ghufran Zafar, Rukhshanda Nosheen



The upcoming severe health problems can be due to the asthmatic burdens. Severe asthma can lead to dangerous exacerbation and damage of pulmonary function. It can also affect medication-related problems for example steroids. In routine practice, the risk of asthma is not easily detectable. The present tools for the measurement and diagnosis of asthma and asthma-related morbidity cannot surely predict the upcoming risks of morbidity due to medication. The article reviews the existing evidence of upcoming danger in people with asthma. This review is pivoted on the danger in people with “controlled” acute asthma. It is obvious from some studies that long-term use of corticosteroids cannot stop the progression of asthma and lung damage. The other results show that the adverse effect of the drugs increases even with the lesser dose of oral corticosteroids. So, there is a need for new therapies for the reduction of upcoming risks due to asthma.
