DLCO

I was recently diagnosed with bronchiectasis from a CT scan.  Pulmonary function tests were normal for spirometry but I had a somewhat reduced DLCO.  I have 2 questions:  (1) Is that finding concsistent with bronchiectasis?  (2) My doctor now wants me to take a 6 min walk test.  What's the purpose of that?


This discussion is related to low diffusion(dlco) on pft's.
