Pulmonologist Questions COPD

My daughter is suffering from COPD. Is it a lifelong disease?

My daughter has just been diagnosed with COPD from smoking, due to which she often has breathing trouble. She is quitting smoking, but is COPD a lifelong condition?

Yes, but if the primary cause - cigarette smoking - is removed, the progression slows down.
COPD is a lifelong condition that can be treated but not reversed.
