When I saw my resp. team last week and they did my spirometry etc. they told me I had 67 year old lungs. That's more than double my actual age.
What does this actually mean? Is it a reversible thing just as an indicator of current health (asthma not great at the mo - back on 40mg Pred, but can be much better) like PEF or something more stable indicating long term lung damage?
If they're 67 already, where does that leave me in future - will they continue to age at double the normal rate - well what would that mean when I'm 50 and have 100 year old + lungs? Sorry if this is slightly morbid, I'm feeling a bit crappy, I blame the Pred. Going to take a slow walk to the shops and buy some real Smarties to cheer me up.
