Triple Therapy Recommended for COPD With Infrequent Exacerbations

A direct de-escalation from triple therapy to indacaterol/glycopyrronium is not recommended over triple therapy in individuals with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and infrequent exacerbations, according to a study recently published in American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine.

The study researchers included 1053 participants in this randomized, double-blind, triple dummy study (SUNSET; ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT02603393 ), 526 of whom were randomly assigned to triple therapy and 527 to indacaterol/glycopyrronium. Withdrawal from inhaled corticosteroids resulted in a decrease of –26 mL in trough forced expiratory volume in 1 second (95% CI, –53 to 1 mL). This led to confidence limits greater than –50 mL, the non-inferiority margin.

The two treatment groups did not experience significantly different rates of COPD exacerbations (rate ratio, 1.08) or adverse events, although individuals with baseline readings of ≥300 blood eosinophils/μL experienced increased loss of lung function and increased risk for exacerbations. 

What is COPD and what are the stages of it?

I'm trying to find out as much information as possible about COPD b/c my father has it. He's been living with emphazema for a while. He just quit smoking for the most, he's only smoked 2 cigs in 2 days, so i'm proud of him. But what are the final stages

What foods should people with COPD and heart disease avoid completely?

Someone in my family has COPD and heart disease, which may include enlarged heart and definetely arrhythmia. I add no salt to food and make sure canned goods, such as sausages are rinsed. This goes for ham and many other salty foods.

Still,


Eat a varied diet. Eat fruits and vegetables, dairy products, cereal and grains, and meats.
Avoid foods that are difficult to chew.
Use less salt. Too much salt can cause you to retain fluids, which may interfere with your breathing.
