What Should I Know about Foods And Emphysema?

What diets can help treat my emphysema?

Here are some tips for your emphysema diet:

  • Have a balanced diet
    This means that you should eat more fresh fruits and vegetables and limit intake of meat.
  • Eat more fatty fish
    Fatty fish, such as sardines and salmon, is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, and this can make your lungs healthier.
  • Limit the intake of salt
    Too much salt may trigger water retention, making it harder for you to breathe.
  • Pay attention to your weight
    People with emphysema tend to lose weight. If you have lost too much weight, you can add some healthy foods with high calorie to your diet, including milk and eggs.
