Low Lung Capacity/FVC 61%

I am a 39 year old man, Smoker, weight 63KG & height 172 cm I fell always a mild shortness of breathe from the last 02 month. My doctor makes me the, Chest x-ray, 6 minute walk test, allergy test & a bronco provocation test. My chest X-ray, 6 minute walk test is quite normal. But my bronco provocation test result is 1) moderately restrictive airway defect. 2) Moderately positive bronco provocation test. My baseline/ pre-medication FVC are 61% & FEV1 is 61%. FEV1/FVC ratio is 82%. (My doctor prescribed me the medication, Seretide 250 Accuhaler, MONTELUKAST 10MG, Ebastine ,

MY question is: 1) is it possible to increase The FVC % till to normal range? As I can see it is lower than normal 80%, which indicates restrictive lung dieses. 2) Is there any treatment to stop the decline of FVC% 2) do I require further more investigation? 3) How severe my situation is according the above mentioned info? Do I need further more diagnosis?

  • Very interesting reading. Would it be suitable for myself as I can only manage about ten paces without having to rest and that's with using oxygen! Obviously it would be baby steps day by day but to know that my lungs can improve themselves with hard work and effort does give me hope?

  • your best bet in my opinion is to get a walker with a seat and walk ten paces and sit down and rest until you can walk again; do this as often as you can

    here's what I just posted on my site: I AM CERTAIN THAT I AM ABLE TO GET RID OF MORE CARBON DIOXIDE AFTER WALKING WITHOUT SUPPLEMENTAL OXYGEN (WITH SATURATIONS IN THE 80'S) THAN WHEN I WALK USING 4 LPM SUPPLEMENTAL OXYGEN (WITH SATURATIONS IN THE HIGH 90'S). THIS IS BECAUSE OF THE HALDANE EFFECT.
