The guide has been written by people with bronchiectasis to help other people living with this condition.
Barbara Crossley, who has had bronchiectasis since childhood and is a member of our Bronchiectasis Patient Advisory Group said, “We believe that self-care is just as important as medication in being able to live well with bronchiectasis. In this guide we wanted to share what works for us in terms of physiotherapy, exercise, diet, coping with breathlessness and fatigue, and taking care of our mental health.
“Self-care takes time and effort each day, but it enables us to lead a healthier, more active life with greater resilience to infections and flare-ups, and that has to be worthwhile. We hope it helps anyone struggling to cope with bronchiectasis.”
