    What is "Uncontrolled symptoms"? I cannot see in the context

    Google also failed to offer me clue.

    Context:

    Uncontrolled symptoms of pediatric asthma found in 50% of children

    Asthma is a serious disease that when left undertreated, can be deadly. In fact, asthma accounts for 4,000 deaths annually in the United States alone. And according to a new International Consensus (ICON) on Pediatric Asthma, an alarming 50 percent of children worldwide have uncontrolled symptoms, despite today's available treatments.

    The reason for such a startling rate is because asthma is often misdiagnosed and undertreated. Pediatric asthma is a leading cause of missed school days, and is a chronic disease that requires regular care and treatment by a board-certified allergist. Maintenance, including the proper use of prescribed medication, is crucial for children with asthma to live healthy, long and active lives.

    The American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (ACAAI) is one of the four medical organizations publishing the ICON to raise awareness of pediatric asthma, ensure appropriate management and control, and improve children's quality of life. The ICON provides advice for the best clinical practice in pediatric asthma management.

    Allergist Stanley Fineman MD, President of the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology, is available to discuss:

    ? How proper diagnosis and treatment can regulate asthma symptoms in children
    ? The importance of pediatric asthma care and control
    ? How parents can ensure their child uses their prescribed medication correctly
    ? Common asthma triggers in children
    ? Ways to prevent asthma symptoms while at school and during play

    "Diagnosis and care for children with asthma remains challenging in many areas of the world, including the United States. Our hope is that the publication and use of the International Consensus on (ICON) Pediatric Asthma can help change this problem," says Dr. Fineman. "As allergists, our goal is to get the right care to the children who need it most no matter where they live. With proper care and management children with asthma can grow up to live not just healthier, but more productive lives."

    HI,

    IMO, it means that 50% of the children show those symptoms, but they have received no treatment to keep them under control so far.

    For children, an uncontrolled sympton might include urinary incontinence, especially in the onset of acute episoded asthma.
    I need to know the concrete symptons.

    Urinary incontinence sounds pretty concrete to me.

    But that's not what you were asking, according to your first post. Besides, that's a question you should ask to a doctor. If there's any around, s/he will be able to answer your new question.
