Fast Facts

Title: COPD Healthy Eating
Area: Pulmonary Medicine

  • Use medications that make breathing easier and/or clear your airways about 1 hour before eating.
  • Rest before eating if eating makes you short of breath or tired.
  • Eat while sitting up. This helps remove pressure on your lungs.
  • If you use oxygen, use it while eating. Eating and digestion require energy, which causes your body to use more oxygen.
  • Eat six small meals each day instead of three large ones so that your stomach is never extremely full. A full stomach can interfere with breathing by pushing on the diaphragm.
  • Eat and chew slowly so you are less likely to become short of breath. Try putting your spoon or fork down between bites to slow your eating speed.
