Things you should know about Pulmonary Fibrosis

Pulmonary Fibrosis is a lung disease that occurs when lung tissue becomes damaged or scarred. This thickened, stiff tissue makes it more difficult for the lungs to function properly. As pulmonary fibrosis worsens, the person starts experiencing shortness of breath. 

The scarring associated with pulmonary fibrosis can be caused by many factors. In most cases, it becomes difficult for the doctor to pinpoint what’s causing the problem. When a cause can’t be found, the condition is called Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis.

The lung damage caused by pulmonary fibrosis can’t be repaired, but medications and therapies can sometimes help to ease the symptoms and improve the quality of life. For some people, a lung transplant is the best alternative.
