Knowing what is COPD may be important for getting the best help

A lot of people around the world experience varied health problems and diseases. Some may suffer from common problems that can be treated easily and others may have bigger problems that may take time to get treated or cured. However, in all cases, it becomes essential to make sure that the right treatment and medication is provided to the patient so that the recovery may be a quick and a smooth one. With the growing levels of pollution and stress in modern city settings, the problems that affect health have also grown in measure.

A lot of people not only suffer from a single health issue but have to fight a number of issues that combine to become a major problem. One such problem is COPD. A lot of people may wonder what is COPD. It is known as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. This is a problem that affects the lungs and is generally a combination of two or more than two diseases of the lungs. With the severity of the problem, the patients may experience a lot of troubles that relate to breathing.

One of the most common symptoms of COPD is breathing problems. One may feel shortness of breath and at times they may feel suffocated. A patient of COPD may also experience coughing and difficulty in sleeping. More severe cases may complain of problems such as anxiety and depression or sleeplessness. It is also symptomatic of COPD for the patients to feel fatigued and tired and wheezing may be caused as a result of the combination of breathing issues.

Treating the problem may take some time and effort because it becomes important to treat each issue that affects the lungs. One may have to undergo bronchitis treatment along with other treatments and it is imperative to see a specialist consultant who may be able to give the right diagnosis and a proper treatment. It is highly important to follow the treatment and medication regularly as suggested by the specialist because the only way to be able to completely cure COPD is to follow a religiously strict treatment regime. In the case of neglect or wrong treatment one may have to face serious consequences, which is why it is essential to make sure that only the best heads in the field are asked for help.

  • There is NO cure for COPD. None. Nada. The above statement in the last paragraph gives people false hope, and this statement should be removed.

  • I know...right.. about fell over when I read there was a cure. Its a progressive disease..no cure

  • Have you reported the post?

  • I have COPD and I am on oxygen 24/7, I 39% of my own oxygen going to my body, I have had two tests done, and it cannot be cured , people should know this, mine was from smoking.

  • My dr said there is no cure. I wish there was! I was diagnosed about 25 years ago and I have progressively gotten worse even with the best medicationselection and now 24/7 oxygen. I do pray for the day there is a cure and nobody has to live thru this.

  • What's this "completely cure" reference? I thought there was no cure for copd. Do you know something that has eluded every physician and medical authority?

  • whoever wrote the above statement on copd take the time to learn anything about this, like there are no cures for this. you dont get better we take one day at a time and some pray its a good day.

  • Well I'm not trying to raise a ruckus but perhaps the doctor above meant to say something different than "It is highly important to follow the treatment and medication regularly as suggested by the specialist because the only way to be able to completely cure COPD is to follow a religiously strict treatment regime." It is very important to follow your treatment plan but the medical world consensus is still that COPD is not curable yet it is treatable.

    In the website she attached there isn't a reference to a cure that I could find. Rather the following excerpt "But while COPD can’t be cured, the good news is that it can be treated." Perhaps we will be closer to a cure in our lifetime through newer studies, trials, and treatments.
