Are You Taking Vitamin D (and Other Vitamins) For COPD?
A MyCOPDTeam Member asked a question 💭

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 much?

Who Do Y’all Get Your B12 Injections From?
A MyCOPDTeam Member asked a question 💭

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?!
