Asthma and COPD

After years with asthma, I wonder what the difference is between COPD and asthma. After years with asthma, it can become not reversible and more complicated. Does it then become COPD or is it not a treatable type of asthma.

  1. Hi Hershey and thanks for posting this excellent question. It's not always easy to differentiate between the two illnesses. I thought this article might provide you with a bit more insight for your concern: https://asthma.net/living/expert-answers-difference-between-copd/. All the best, Leon (site moderator)
