Dr. Eulogio Galvez answered
Specializes in General Practice
Don't know: I am not a pulmonologist. I would refer you to our healthtaps specialists or private pulmonologist for correct information. My practice is limited to surgery and self-healing meditation to treat cancers and chronic illnesses as a secondary support management.

No effective Rx: There are no effective treatments for pulmonary fibrosis although Prednisone (steroids) are often used. Multiple other medications have been used, but none has been proven to affect this condition.
