    Hi tdthomas
    As Leon mentioned, some do say that they were diagnosed with COPD at an early age. For those that I have talked with, they contracted COPD from other ways than smoking.
    Do you know what caused your COPD? Were you just diagnosed?
    I would like to hear back from you. We learn so much from each other. Know that you aren’t alone.

    Hi tdthomas22 and thanks for your post. We do have community members who have advised their diagnosis with COPD at early ages. I’m hopeful some will see your inquiry and chime in.
    Wishing you the best,
