I was given an asthma diagnosis abojt 25 years ago and this has been well controlled until the end of last iyear when thijngs hace gone decidedly pear shaped . Three lots of antibiotics just finishing the third now, two courses of pred all different kinds of inhalers thrown me. To cuta very long story short I managed to get an appointment with a consultant privatley, against my proinciples but needs must. He did a few basic tests took a history etc and will offer further tests if what he has decided does not work.
My question is my spiromitry results were as folows FEV 2.87 FVC 3.35 predicted 250/295 is this good, bad or normal. He didn't give any indication as to what this meant . He was however appalled that I had never had one before as it is good tool for diagnosis.
