Interstitial lung dz: Yes. You should see a pulmonologist regularly for this condition. They will help you remain aware of any new or existing medications that may help your symptoms and can help you manage and maximize your lung functions with helpful things like the right amount of exercise or eventually oxygen, if needed.
