Hi all hope eveyone is ok at the mo and looking forward to prezzies and turkey.
My son Jayden had his first appointment at RBH today and had a few tests done. AS usual he was completely well when we have a hospital appointment so don't know if the tests showed anything about his asthma at all!!
Hi s lung function was really good and peak flows at about 80% However he had an ENO test done (reallly cool to watch cute girly hovering over cliff!!) and was told that even though he's well if hes Asthmatic there will still be inflammation. His result was 70, no idea what that means, is it good, bad, normal? Would the result be lower as he is well and increase when he's ill or is just be the same regardless of condition at the time. Sorry to sound so clueless but not come across this one before.
Also had talk of home visit followed by possible broncoscopy and ph study. Does it always get to this step or do they sometimes leave it after home visit. Also had meds changed from Seratide to Symbicort 1600 mg/day. Has this made much difference to anyone, would love to hear it has!!
Well thanks for reading and a merry chrismas to all.
