Hello guys.

I posted a while back that I had gotten a 84% on my spirometry and thought this wasn't my FEV1 predicted as the doctor had told me my results were really good.

So I've just gotten my actual results back and figured I would share them here in case anyone remembered me. These results are after the inhalor thingy.

FVC: 5.96, Predicted: 5.59

FEV1: 4.96, Predicted: 4.49

FEV1/FVC: 83.2, Predicted: 80.4

PEF: 631, Predicted 610

      No this is my first and only test. I had gotten results earlier but was confused as to what they meant, and this time I got some feedback from the nurse and the actual numbers back.

      Hello!

      As of right now I have no symptoms and i am healthy. I first thought the 84% she had given me was the predicted FEV1(where your is 75%), but I had understood it wrong at it thankfully turned out my predicted FEV1 was 105%

      The reason was that I had been a smoker for 10 years, and had never done any kind of astma/COPD related tests in my life. The suggested at the doctors office that it's a good idea to have one done, for future comparisons in case I was to get something.

      That and I have a bit of health anxiety.
