Dec 26 2010 your choices and actions do determine how you function

Posted Dec 26 2010 2:12pm

 

Holidays and the "Merry Merry" are almost over ... (Hope you had good times) … now - assess yourself and get moving for you to enjoy another year, your choices and actions do determine how you function and feel down the road.

 On the left, my Christmas present- for reference and learning more about my disease, I hope to learn more to keep me focused on moving.
 Set your Goal and set your determination to work towards that goal, keep moving - even if you have to slow down sometimes… the continuing forward motion no matter how slow is of super importance. It IS hard, I know, and I need to follow my own advice. This time of year I feel like going into hibernation.
'Maintaining’ and even increasing your activity level is key to keeping the lung function that you have http://www.wdsu.com/health/26214068/detail.html This applies to everyone, not just lung patients.  Any age can improve to some degree.

The lung damage that constitutes COPD can't be reversed; all you can do is halt or slow the progression of the disease. And if you don't start treating it until you're already out of breath just walking around the house, you've got a lot less to work with. Not only that, but cutting back is the last thing you want to do to prevent COPD progression   If the LINKS don't click, cut and paste them please.

Novel drug offers hope for early intervention in cystic fibrosis patients (December 17, 2010) -- Cystic fibrosis (CF) patients with normal to mildly impaired lung function may benefit from a new investigational drug designed to help prevent formation of the sticky mucus that is a hallmark of the disease, according to researchers involved in a phase 3 clinical trial of the drug. Called denufosol, the investigational medication can be given early in the CF disease process, and may help delay the progression of lung disease in these patients, the researchers found. http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2010/12/101217145643.htm
