Possible treatment of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis

Possible treatment of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis

There's currently no cure for IPF, but there are several treatments that can help relieve the symptoms and slow down its progression. Treatments include: self-care measures – such as stopping smoking, eating healthily and exercising regularly medication to reduce the rate at which scarring worsens – such as pirfenidone and nintedanib breathing oxygen through a mask – you can do this while you're at home and/or while you're out and about pulmonary rehabilitation – exercises and advice to help you breathe more easily a lung transplant – this is suitable in a few cases, although donor lungs are rare
