5 Pulmonary Diseases and Illnesses to Beware of

Respiratory diseases can be a more common problem than we imagine in our society. Sometimes they’re inherited, others are because we are very exposed to some toxic environment, and one of the most serious is smoking. Here we leave some types of pulmonary diseases we must be careful of:

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

It’s one of the most delicate since it makes it difficult for you to breathe or exhale. Even many people don’t detect it at the moment because the symptoms confuse them with other mild respiratory diseases. People who smokes are the ones most exposed to this type of disease and it’s not a good thing, trust me.

Asthma

It’s one of the most common, some cases aren’t so extreme, but you have to be careful with it.

Breathing is difficult because the airways are inflamed. They’re sensitive to an allergic reaction, infection or exposure to toxic environments, just as this type of thing can also cause asthma too.

Emphysema

It’s a COPD too, but at an advanced level, it’s also very common in people who have smoked for many years as it damages the lungs.

For patients coming from this illness, the use of oxygen is even required to help breathe, and although it’s something that isn’t cured, it can be treated and controlled by professionals, with due care the patient must have.

Cystic Fibrosis

This disease isn’t one of the most common, but it’s one of the most serious. It’s caused by some defective gene which affects your system by mucus that generates and affects the respiratory passages. It’s even very exposed to bacteria or infections.
