Just diagnosed w/copd in Dec. Have had asthma since childhood. My lung function is 25%. I seem to have deteriorated in the last 2 months considerably. I am very depressed and not sure what to do or if there is anything I can do to increase lung function. I excersice 3 xs a week. I am one level away from getting my black belt in Tae Kwon Do and do not know if I will make it. Is there any advise out there? I am using Advair and Combivent now. I have been gaining weight as well and not sure if that is from the meds or not. Any advice is welcome. I did see an advertisement for "youbreathe". A device to improve lung function, but is only in UK. Sorry this is so long, I am just frustrated. Thanks.
