Obviously you need to consult a professional. I would suggest working with a trainer or nutritionist (or both) that specialize in illnesses/disease/injury like yours and go from there. Make sure that you verify education, pehaps ask your medical professional for a referral. I would suggest starting out with eating a healthier diet because exercise may be extremely limited for you especially with COPD and depending on your medications. I have many articles on my website but don't just stop there. Seek out a professional, someone you can trust and feel comfortable with.
