Risk Factors for Poorly Controlled Asthma Among Adults with Asthma

Risk Factors

Among adults, uncontrolled asthma is associated with being a '''current or former smoker''', being '''obese''', and having '''chronic obstructive pulmonary disease''' or '''depression'''.^1^ Also, '''work-related''' asthma is associated with poorer asthma control than non-work-related asthma.^2^ 1.
