This is a progressive disease in which the air sacks at the end of bronchioles are gradually destroyed. It is a part of a group of diseases named chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. The symptoms start off mild. They include chest tightness, frequent and long-lasting coughing, and shortness of breath, tiredness and fatigue, loss of appetite, occasional wheezing and incapability of doing any physical activity.
Most common causes of emphysema are smoking and protein deficiency. The chemicals contained in a cigarette slowly destroy the small peripheral airways in the lungs, thus leading to this disease. Then, some people have inherited a lack of the AAt protein, which protects the elastic structures in the lungs. Without it, those structures have a greater chance of developing emphysema.
If left untreated, emphysema can increase the severity of other chronic conditions, such as diabetes and heart failure.
