Hello and welcome to Just Answer. I look forward to answering your question. Do you have records from Glenfield with a diagnosis of copd? Do you have a discharge summary indicating copd? Do you have written information about all your prescriptions ? This should be sufficient to send to your company. You can also show this post. Patients with a diagnosis of copd should not return to work at this time. Please reply with questions and consider a positive rating. We are not compensated without a rating. thank you for using JA.
