    Hi those figures look very good to me!  The most important one is the FEV1 (your lung function) and 100% means normal.  Have you been diagnosed with a lung disease?  Are you a smoker?  Copd is normally caused by decades of smoking (though not all especially if you have a genetic propensity, which is rare) and most people are in their 50's and 60's when diagnosed.  

    Your best bet is to ask your doctor/nurse to go through the figures with you.  x
