Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a specific form of interstitial lung disease (ILD). Austin Pulmonary Consultants diagnoses the condition based on a thorough history and physical exam, imaging, and occasionally lung biopsy.
Austin Pulmonary Consultants follows your condition closely because it often exhibits symptoms unique to individual patients. Some people with IPF lose lung function quickly while others see a gradual worsening of the condition.
Almost all patients with IPF struggle with a chronic cough and shortness of breath.
By monitoring those symptoms, we can develop better treatment plans for your disease and ensure your overall health.
