Living With COPD

Can a person with COPD get better?

While people with COPD cannot be cured, they also can take steps to limit flare-ups and improve their health by implementing lifestyle changes such as: · quitting smoking · dedicating themselves to a healthy diet · engaging in regular breathing exercises · indulging in low-impact physical activity such as walking or gentle yoga, and · avoiding areas dense with harsh chemicals or air pollutants.

Their symptoms and discomfort with COPD can also be addressed with treatment and medication. Talk to your doctor about treatment options and learn about clinical trials for COPD near you.
