What season is worse for COPD?


For people with COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease), winter can be a particularly difficult season to manage. Cold air can irritate the lungs and cause shortness of breath, and respiratory infections such as the flu and colds are more common during the winter months. In addition, people with COPD may have difficulty getting enough exercise during the winter due to the cold weather, which can lead to further lung function decline. However, it is important to note that every person with COPD may have different triggers and reactions to different seasons, and it’s best to work with a healthcare professional to develop an individualized management plan.
