I have been participating in a clinical drug study since July 2014.  I know that without this experience I would be very sick.  I may be referred to as a "lab rat" by many people.  But  I had no medication, no insurance, no job, and as a homemaker I didn't qualify for any medical or financial help in the state I live in.  I walked through their door with an F...

My name is Goldielocks and I have COPD. Seems it should be stamped on my forehead. I am a 55 year old woman that has survived COPD for the past 10 years with little to no treatment, until the past couple years.  I was tested yesterday and the 22% function of my lungs didn't phase me.  I do not have oxygen nor have I used a home nebulizer.  On a good air day I may get up to 33% ...

I currently am battling the MRSA in my lungs again. Apparently there was  Just enough bacteria hiding in the lungs to bounce back. My question is, antibiotics are very hard on your stomach.

If your health insurance plan covers quit-smoking treatments, you are more likely to try to quit and be successful.

Flying the friendly skies became friendlier to lungs 25 years ago, thanks to groundbreaking legislation that made domestic flights smokefree. The historic measure provided protection for airline passengers and flight attendants from secondhand smoke, and paved the way for further smokefree initiatives to protect Americans where they live, work and gather.

We are in an exciting time for cancer treatment, and patients have options that didn't exist just a decade ago. Personalized or precision medicine is an emerging approach to healthcare where treatment is more highly tailored to the biology of the patient.
