So by proper I mean sitting in a cubicle with nose clip and face mask My other ones have been desk-top units one in Russia and one at my UK ex GP (ex because I was removed from the surgery list for not going to visit for over 6 months)
Readings did not really give me cause for worry and I wonder why, after looking up the GOLD guidelines, I was diagnosed so early. I guess it must have been the cough and that I was a smoker.
So first mention was Moscow Russia in April 2013
Second check was my GP in September 2013
3rd was December 2015 and these are the only real results I have ever seen apart form CT and x-ray.
VC in 81.9% of predicted
FVC 89.5% of predicted
FEV1 83.8% of predicted
FEV1 % VC Max 90.5% of predicted
I think I really need to have this done again because that is not how it feels now.
The peak flow is something I measure on a regular basis and generally it is around 88% of predicted at around 500 but can get as low as 320 and I have seen high 650's or slightly more but I think they must have been a fluke.
Any thoughts - have I been misdiagnosed only joking guys I am sure the current numbers are way below the above ones and this probably due to my 4 years of denial.
Forgot to mention that the predicted values are different or seem to be different depending on where you are and who you are (American or European or Eastern and so on) when I looked for them I found the ones used were higher than European which kind of makes sense here as the Hospital is located in the same place as the US 5th Fleet so most of the specialists expect to treat Americans.
