1 Get your doctor to refer you to a respiratory doctor who knows about Lam.

2  Have a high-resolution CT Scan.  As X-rays often show the lungs to be normal.

3  Abdominal CT Scan – It may show up that you also have renal angiomyolipomas –            fatty kidney tumors.

4  Lung function tests (spirometry) – Lung function tests are not to diagnose Lam but to measure the severity of Lam.  Regular lung function tests once diagnosed are used to monitor the process of Lam.
