I have been reading about the importance of vitamin D in particular and vitamin C. My husband, who has a different pulmonary doctor than I do was prescribed a high dose of vitamin D and it comes as a prescription. My doctor has not prescribed it for me. I will talk to my doctor about it next time I go, but I wondered if any or all of you guys were also taking vitamin D as it is supposed to be good for lung function and excaberation prevention. If you are taking it......how much?
THANKS Doris! Sounds like our Drs. are on the same page
I’m at the severe stage and would like, at least to be able to get the oxygen to my lungs. I can only hope that someone has an answer to my problem or at least some ideas as to what to do.
I thank you for reading my post.
I am trying to find natural supplements to help with my COPD. Has anyone tried the herb Boswellia Serrata? It is supposed to reduce flare ups and help with better lung function in people with COPD.
I have seen many of you mention B12 shots for fatigue.
Which doctor or place are you getting them from?
I have to ask for everything from my doctors, they never recommend anything.
And I have turned into a vampire, avoiding the sun when ever possible.
I don’t sleep well at night either, which doesn’t help.
Maybe I could use an injection of B12 sunshine?!
All reading I have found says that VitaminD is NOT made by the body and MUST be taken in by Dietary and/or outside supplements. My Doc will not budge on recommending Statins when he sees my LDL numbers. The plot just thickened:
