What is interstitial pulmonary fibrosis and how can it be treated?

Depends on the Dx. Pulmonary fibrosis is a loose term. "idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (ipf)" on the other hand is a specific diagnosis with no known good treatment.
Let me explain. Pulmonary fibrosis occurs when lung tissue becomes damaged and scarred. This thickened, stiff tissue makes it more difficult for your lungs to work properly. Oxygen therapy, Prednisone in combination with Methotrexate or cyclosporine. My help to slow the disease and improve the quality of life.
