Pulmonary Fibrosis Related Shortness of Breath Can Be Improved
IPF (idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis) is a condition in which the lung tissue becomes thickened, stiff, and scarred over a period of time. The development of the scar tissue is called fibrosis. As the lung tissue becomes scarred and thicker, the lungs lose their ability to transfer oxygen into the bloodstream. As a result, patients suffer from shortness of breath and dry coughing and patients brain and other organs do not get the oxygen they need. There is no cure according to conventional wisdom. Learn More

Symptoms

1)shortness of breath
2)chronic dry hacking cough
3)fatigue and weakness
4)discomfort in the chest
5)loss of appetite
6)rapid weight loss

Causes

The origin and development of IPF is still not completely understood. The current thinking is that there is an abnormal response to microscopic injury which ultimately results in scarring. There are also genetic factors that may contribute to the development of IPF:

1)Smoking
2)Environmental dust/pollutants
3)Viral infections
4)Genetics

Western Medicine Treatment

The clinical course of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is highly variable and may be difficult to predict. As a result, strategies to treat IPF are highly individualized, based upon the specific patients medical history and other conditions. Typical standards of care may include:

1)prescription therapies
2)supplemental oxygen
3)pulmonary rehabilitation
4)lung transplantation (Lung transplantation remains the most viable course of treatment to extend the lives of those with IPF)
