Lung Disease, Treatment of Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis


Treatment of IPF, a grievous lung disease that affects the quality of health

Unfortunately, IPF is an irreversible lung disease causing scarring of lung tissues which is fatal for health.  

The treatment of IPF improves the quality of life and alleviates the troublesome symptoms like dyspnea (breathlessness), cough, fatigue and pain.  No treatment can actually reverse the damage done to the lung tissues.  But proper medications and change in lifestyle can slow the progression of IPF.


Research and clinical trials are being conducted.  It might be possible to find a new treatment plan in the coming years.
