Mild flattening of the hemi diaphragms is an indirect sign of hyper (over) inflated lungs, the usual cause of which is asthma or COPD.  Mild interstitial changes is a sign of lung scarring.  Neither means that you have serious lung disease.  The status of your lungs would best be determined by pulmonary function testing.

Good luck
