Restrictive Lung Function/Diseases
Looking to get information or input from people with restrictive lung function (restrictive lung diseases)
What type do you have?
How was it diagnosed?
feel free to be as wordy as you like
If you have restrictive lung function does that mean you have restrictive lung disease?
If you have restrictive lung function do you believe further testing should be done to determine what type of restrictive lung disease it could be.?[/U]?
What are the many tests out there used to diagnose restrictive lung diseases?
Which do you think are the best?
Is a lung/chest cat scan without contrast reliable?
or is contrast needed for a more accurate reading?
Thank you any input or information is appreciated.
I am also new to this and I always was treated for allergies and asthma. I went to a new doctor to get retested for asthma and he is sending to a pulmonary specialist for mild restrictive lung disease!!! So I am getting ready to see this specialist in august.. Not exicted I am scared
Hi nece 1234,
I also was always treated for allergies & asthma.
But I recently got copies of my pulmonary function test results.
They all say mild restrictive lung function.
I am in the process of looking for a new doctor. Hopefully someone who is better.
I am looking for a doctor who will be more attentive, concerned, takes my condition more seriously, willing to inform/educate me on my condition, and give me the proper test explaining what is/or what caused my condition.
How to stop it from progressing and what all are the possible
medications/treatments for this.
What kind of tests have you had that gave you the diagnosis
of restriction lung function?
