Hello....I have had asthma since 2009 because of asbestos fibers in my lungs and my doctor has told me that now I have asthma and also a mild case C.O.P.D. I am curious if this is possible and if anyone else has the same ailment.....and how your doctor has treated it... I am not doubting my doctor I just like to research it and come up with some new ideas that I can give to my doctor.....Thanks

Hi rvm1234,

This information from the American Lung Association on the link between asthma and COPD may be helpful for you to look through and discuss with your doctor. It does say that, "many patients with long-standing asthma develop airway remodeling that causes a chronic irreversible airflow obstruction, or COPD." Please let us know how you are doing!

Best wishes,
