Bronchiectasis: Bronchiectasis is a result of lung tissue destruction. Lung excercise might help but you would need to see a lung specialist to find out the etiology of your problem. Treating the underlying disease would prevent further lung destruction or worsening bronchiectasis and improve your lung function. Many things can present that way. Both allergist and pulmonilogist are well versed in this condition.
