FEV1 71% eight months ago and 71% today...Doctor switched me from Advair to Incruse Ellipta...said I had been treated as if I were a "D," but that I am really a "B." I kinda' interpreted all that as good news....I don't get here often, can my interpretation be right? Thanks,

Aligater

He just switched you form a LABA with a steroid (Advair) to a LAMA (a Spiriva wannabe). His comment about you being treated like a D when you are a B is a comment on the last doc's diagnostic and treatment skills. You'll see how right he was......

Exercise not only lets me live, it enables me to have a life.
