In brief: Depends on cause

Obstructive & restrictive lung disorders are broad groups that include several disease conditions.
The body's response to either of these categories of lung diseases will depend on the specific diagnosis/condition. For example, obstructive disorders include both asthma & cystic fibrosis but their outcomes & body's responses are completely different. Talk to lung specialist in person to learn more.
