Can COPD be hereditary?

March 16, 2022
You're more likely to acquire COPD disease if you smoke and have a close relative who has it, suggesting that some people's genes make them more sensitive to the disease. Intergenerational relationships in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) have long been recognised, and they can be caused by genetic, gene environment, or life course variables. As a result, adult offspring of COPD parents may be at a higher risk of developing the disease. COPD and smoking are more dangerous to lung health.
COPD appears to run in families, so if your parents had chest difficulties, your chances of developing it are increased. People with alpha-1-antitrypsin deficiency, an uncommon genetic disease, are more likely to develop COPD.Blossom like a flower with Salt Therapy for COPD at Saltworld.
