Treating Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis

While chronic diseases like idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) aren’t curable, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t treat them. There are several medications available for those with IPF. The main goal of treatment is to reduce lung inflammation and slow the loss of lung function. This will allow you to breathe easier.

In addition to medications, certain therapies, like pulmonary rehabilitation and oxygen therapy, may be beneficial. No matter what, remember that just because you’ve been officially diagnosed with IPF doesn’t mean you should give up hope. The articles below are here to show you that IPF can be successfully managed and treated.
