Living well with a lung condition

Living well with a lung condition

The information on these pages is designed to give help and support to people who have been diagnosed with a breathing problem – such as Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). We hope you’ll find the information here helpful in managing your condition.

If you haven’t been diagnosed with a respiratory problem but have started feeling short of breath, don’t worry. Feeling short of breath from time to time is healthy and normal – but sometimes it can be a sign of something more serious so should be checked out.

You can read more about shortness of breath on the NHS website and the British Lung Foundation’s five minute ‘breath test’ will help you understand why you might be getting out of breath.
