Hello!
Emphysema is not curable, but it can be treated. Those who have it can be helped to live with it.
First thing when starting treatment, emphysematous person must stop smoking in order to retard progression of disease. Some medications might help (bronchial medications), sometimes oxygen helps. Those patients that suffer from deficiency of alpha-1 antitrypsin, weekly infusions of alpha-1 antitrypsin are available, but these injections are very expensive.
Besides all medication, physical exercise is very important!
