Question Your Average Peak Flow Reading?

Hi, everyone

Could you share what your average peak flow reading has been lately? Mine has been about 325.

Re: Your Average Peak Flow Reading?

Mine normally is 450-500. I am 48 years old and 5'3". When I was sick a couple of weeks ago, it went down to 350 (lowest), but as I got better it went up.

My goal is 460, but usually I'm more like 350.

Re: Your Average Peak Flow Reading?

I have had asthma since I was 4 and never did anyone suggest I find out what my "peak flow reading" is. What do you use to test this and where do I get one??

Re: Your Average Peak Flow Reading?

Peak flow meters can be purchased at the drug store. The pharmacist has them behind the counter. You can ask your doctor which one he recommends. I think I paid under $20 for mine.
