Hi Everyone,

I just got the results of my Pulmonary Function Test and everything was normal except it said that I have moderately reduced diffused capacity. Can anyone tell me what this means? Are my lungs not functioning properly?

Thanks in Advanced

I think that's measurement of your lung capacity?
I know mine is 80%. I can't tell a difference except when my asthma is pestering me.

Thank you Couchtater. I am not sure what number I am suppose to look at. One says 65% and another say 41%.

I'm not sure....
You might have to get the doctor to explain this better.
