Results Of Echo And PFT
Posted 15 May 2007 - 01:48 AM
For the PFT it says mild restricitve Lung disease with mild reduction in diffusion capacity. A repeat of spirometry pre and post broncholdilator therapy maybe helpful to evalute for airway hyperreactivity.
Now I have to look all that up and find out what they are talking about. so if anyone can help me that would be awesome.
I'm going to call my rheumatologist and see what he say's. I'm not going to wait until I see him in August. Well take care all, Sam
