hope all is well
im not sure what to make of this but i had spirometry test june 10th 2014.
results were as followed FEV1 4.56, FVC 5.83 FEV1-FEV Ratio of 78%
iv just recently stuck these results into the spirometry calculater on patient.info and it said these results are normal.
however i had another test on the 6th january this year as i was still having breathing difficulties. this test was a full lung funtion test.
results were as follwed FEV1 4.8 FVC 6.45 FEV1-FEV Ratio of 75%
thats a ratio drop of 3% in 7 months but i stuck these reults in the spirometry calculater and it said my ratio was low & to consider COPD.
im not freaking out about this but should i seek a second opinion on this? as my doctor says the last test results are normal even though there is a slight decline in ratio.
thanks guys and take care x
