Hi I dont' understand all the numbers but FEV1 is your lung function. A figure of 78% means you are mild and in stage 1. that is very good. x

You have an FEV 1 of 78. You should be jumping for joy and turning somersaults :) This is a lot of lung capacity that will allow you to exercise and feel much better. Do drainage techniques for the mucous, get a proper meds regime set up with your doctor and start taking control. Believe me, you can so so much to help your disease which is very moderate.
