And whether you have eaten. Steve was advised to have a lighter meal before his pft.

Steve's pft we low to mid 40s at diagnosis. His mep/mip were ok. Last he had done, his mep/mip were about 15. He lost considerable function after that.

The docs look for a 10% change visit to visit. Steve was going every 6 weeks and until the 6 or 7 months everything was stable. Then he went monthly until December. Each month there was at least a 10%drop. He still went for appointments but no pfts.
