I've been diagnosed with asthma from 4-5 years old, when I was a child.
Last years I started with repetitive bronchitis and phlegm, and they changed my med to symbicort this year (august), and i feel a great relief. My Peak Flow is increased now, I started with 500 aprox, now it's between 550-570, with som peaks of 600-620. Now they are investigating, and maybe the bronchitis are caused due to sinusitis issue.
I am more stable now of my asthma (I have much better resistance during sports practice) and they made a spirometry test.
But the doctor didn't gave me any information (substitue doctor). She doesn't seemed to understand a lot about it. I've done some research, and I see that my FEV1/FVC is a little bit low before the medication, 69.40 (89% of predicted) instead 70 or more (very little mild obstruction). 10mins ffter the medication then is 73.87 (94% of predicted). The FVC it's pretty good, 102%, FEV1 88%. FEF 25-75 it's also a little bit low, 61, and in some places I read that if it's more than 60 it's fine...but I am not sure about it. After the meds, increases a little bit, not a lot, I suppose because I am now stable on my asthma condition. In the past i think that the difference after the meds would have been much bigger.
The curve of the graphic it's mild asthma i suppose.
Please, can somebody check the attached file to give me some information about? I supose that all is related to the size (1.70cm), sex and age (Male, 38).
Thank you in advance for your help!!
