A lung disease can be debilitating. It can turn a simple flight of stairs into an insurmountable obstacle. It can be heartbreaking as you watch your child sidelined from his or her favorite sport by an asthma attack. And it can be deadly: Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is the third leading cause of death in the United States.
Today, more than 34 million Americans suffer from asthma or COPD. If you or a loved one are in this group—or if you want to dramatically lower your risk of lung disease—you are invited to send for COPD, Asthma & Other Lung Diseases. This authoritative, just-published report is packed with strategies for preventing the causes and minimizing the consequences of a lung disease, including emphysema, chronic bronchitis, bronchiectasis and asthma.
Published in collaboration with the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, this 80-page report clears the air when it comes to understanding the conditions that give rise to a lung disease. You’ll learn which factors increase your risk of COPD even if you’ve never smoked…what “asthma triggers” you can easily sidestep (and which are likely to trip you up no matter what) … and how your family history may determine your child’s susceptibility to a lung ailment.
In it you will be briefed on medical progress that’s enabling doctors to identify specific lung diseases earlier and more accurately. And you’ll learn how these diagnostic advances are facilitating the introduction of targeted, patient-tailored treatments that can halt—and even eliminate—those conditions that can disrupt your activities or affect your life.
Because the first symptoms of lung disease can be mild, they are often ignored. In the report you will learn those early warning signs of COPD and asthma that should get you to your doctor. You’ll gain insight into which tests are best. And you’ll examine emerging techniques to assess pulmonary function, distinguish between diseases, and determine the optimal course of treatment.
Short-acting or long-acting? A beta-agonist to relax muscles or an anticholinergic to prevent constriction? The report will explain—in clear language—the purpose and place for each.
Plus, you’ll be briefed on breakthroughs in controlling COPD. You’ll read about new combination therapies that speed and simplify drug delivery, how a novel approach that includes “breathing lessons” is helping men and women with moderate COPD resume normal lives, and that vitamin D may improve lung function.
Did you know that if you have COPD, cough suppressants do more harm than good? And do you know which common over-the-counter (OTC) medicines can set off asthma symptoms? Or that eating more fruits and vegetables may reduce COPD symptoms? Find out more in the report.
In an evening’s reading, you set the course for a lifetime of better respiratory health. The report is filled with practical guidance and preventive strategies to lessen the risk and repercussions of a lung disease. It will help you work with your physician to select treatment protocols targeted to your condition and your needs. It will take away needless apprehension, and give you solid direction.
There’s no reason to let a lung disease like COPD or asthma control you when you can control it! Take action now!
