Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis

Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) may not be a well-known disease, that is until you or your loved one is officially diagnosed with it. It’s a lung disease that causes the tissue to stiffen, making it harder for you to take air in and breathe naturally. Because the signs and symptoms of IPF develop slowly over time, it’s difficult for doctors to recognize it and diagnose it immediately. There’s currently no cure for IPF, but treatment options are available to manage and reduce your symptoms.

Take a look at the content we have here to get a better understanding of what the disease is, how to recognize it, what to do after a diagnosis, and how treatment can allow you to live a healthier life.
