Why COPD patients lose weight?

March 19, 2022
When your lungs aren't performing as well as they should, your body has to work harder to breathe. You may burn up to ten times as many calories as usual as a result of this. COPD, which causes shortness of breath and a chronic cough, can cause a loss of appetite, weight loss, and even cachexia.
Some persons with severe COPD, particularly those with emphysema, may be underweight and emaciated. COPD patients frequently lose weight. You lose muscle mass when you lose weight, including the muscles that help you breathe. Breathing may become more difficult as a result of this.Attend to your health and listen to your heart with Salt Therapy for COPD at Saltworld.
