Lung conditions

Respiratory diseases are disorders of the airways and lungs, such as Asthma or Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary disorder (COPD). The National Institute for Health lists chronic lower respiratory disease as the third leading cause of death in the US. Often there are personal changes and self-management techniques that can have an impact on the condition. Connecting with others can help you understand how others approach these. Below you’ll find user experiences grouped by lung disease as well as communities run by expert nonprofits with a focus on particular kinds of respiratory disease.
