  • COPD And Your Weight

In recent years obesity has evolved into a global epidemic.   

Although obesity is not a risk factor for chronic respiratory diseases like COPD, there is clinical evidence that suggests an increasing, influential relationship between the two.

To date, COPD is the third leading cause of death in the United States, trailing behind heart disease and cancer.

Ed Neuzil, Board Certified Nurse Practitioner at Allergy, Sinus and Asthma Family Health Center explains how our weight, and particularly excess belly fat, affects COPD.
