xeniar - how long have you been using your peak flow meter? When I first started recording mine, they were all over the place. Mine peak flows are always lower at night by almost 50L/min. This isn't something you can really improve on your own, except to follow the plan your doctor gave you. Does your doctor know you are constantly in the yellow area?
I assume so, since he/she is asking you to track it.
How long have you had asthma? You should always check with your doctor if you have any questions.

Whatever theings are true, whatever things are noble whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy-meditate on these things.

I have not been good at using my breath flow meter as my physician has asked me to. So I have started tracking it here in that same place you put your weight in.

My breath flow was 300 L/min and now it is 258. I know that is just down a little bit, but it is going down. I want to improve this as I am constantly in the "yellow" area on the meter.

I also am coming to see how my readings on that reflect my energy level.


I do not exercise like I know I should often due to low energy, but I know that exercise is just about the only thing other then my meds that would improve my lung capacity.
