Preventing COPD

If you are concerned about getting COPD, there are steps you can take to protect yourself.

Early Diagnosis

See your doctor or clinic if you have any symptoms of COPD, especially if you are over age 45 and a current or former smoker.  Also, let your doctor know if you have other family members with COPD.  Don't wait for symptoms to become severe because valuable treatment time could be lost.  Remember: Early detection of COPD is key to successful treatment.  Most lung disease can be helped by treatment, and you can live a longer and better quality life.
