Hi guys and gals... looking to create a discussion with some of you to better understand us and our conditions.
When were you diagnosed with COPD and how long have you had it for? What types of treatments or things have you done to improve you "life" and "function" since the diagnosis?

Hi to the both of you. I have been diagnosed with COPD for going on 6 years. My main treatments have been quitting smoking and changing my lifestyle and diet to eating healthier and doing moderate exercise 4 days, at least a week, going outside and enjoying life - lowering my stress.
I would love to continue this communication.
@Hidden username and @Hidden username when were you diagnosed? How are you doing?

I was diagnosed in Nov 2017 and was put on oxygen 24/7 at that point. I am doing well no complaints
I take Incruse and Symbicort for my illness.
I also have Sarcoidosis another lung issue that is in remission .

@Hidden username How would you say your Sarcoidosis affects your COPD?

I have been diagnosed for about a year now and have completely changed my diet to include lots of healthy fruits and vegetables (don't have the money to go organic yet) and healthy sources of proteins (fish and chicken) and healthy fats (cashews walnuts omega 3s). I have all buy cut out completely simple and processed carbohydrates. The only thing I am stryggling with still is getting rid of diet soda... I am getting there.
I also have begun to exercise... I try to increase the stairs I walk and the distance I walk weekly or if I can go further than the day prior, I will.
