Hallo just got my breathing spirometry test results from my gp and if you look at my past tests it is a bit better then my first one january 2013 but not has good has my one last year april 2014.
So am a bit confused with it all but i think looking at my results now i think my first test and then this one seem about right, anyway i have a copy so will put down has it reads
Precentage of predicted forced vital capacity..95%
FEV1/FVC ratio before bronchodilator..68
FEV1/FVC ratio after bronchodilator...71
FVC after bronchodilator...4.03L
FEV1 before bronchodilator...2.72L
FEV1 after bronchodilator...2.83L
Precent predicted FEV1...81%
I dont have this time details of what stage i am now at, has if you look at my first reading i was moderert copd and then last year i was told i was excluded from copd and i think that the reading last year was wrong has i know how i have been feeling in myself
meaning i had 2 chest infections last winter but cleared after a week
But must admit i have taken no seretide 500 now for over a year has have felt ok and have used my blue inhaller i would say 6 times in a year and still not smoked and still go to the gym 2 sometimes 3 times a week on treadmill.
I was thinking i might see my gp and ask or find out if ok to take my seretide maybe just the winter time has
my breathing is still really ok but can sometimes feel a little difficulty but hadly bad enough to panic and i can walk and sometimes run or jog on the treadmill for a good while and i still work part time.
Anyway thats me wont bore you anymore but will go to my gp to find out if i am still at the moderate stage has dont say on this print out has i got it from the reception at my gp.
Have a Good weekend everyone
