I am 38 yr old male and no history of smoking. 6'2, 200lbs. Recently through a study I had peformed a spirometry test and my FVC/FEV1 ratio is consistent with potential COPD...I was told I had asthma as a kid, but never required an inhaler and never had any issues. I recently tried using albuterol and performed the test to see if it would make a difference, and there was not any difference in results from pre- and post- administration of albuterol. Apparently my FVC is 100%, but FEV1 is poor..around 70%. I feel fine, but am just curious as to what may be the problem or if it is even a problem? Thanks
