2. No Symptoms.
Wait, if you have a disease, shouldn’t there be some symptoms? Not necessarily and unfortunately COPD is a condition in which there may not even be any symptoms. Many people tend to find out they have chronic obstructive pulmonary disease after it is too late, which means treatment options are more limited. Given that COPD can be a silent condition that can creep up on your health, it is important to have your doctor assess your health every year or as often as necessary to rule out any potential disease processes. Be sure to pay close attention to any symptoms that may come about, especially if you are feeling ill.
