IPF Treatment FAQs
What is IPF?
Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF) is serious chronic disease that causes damage to the lungs over time. The word “pulmonary" means lung and the word “fibrosis" means scar tissue.
What are the first signs of IPF?
IPF can cause symptoms such as shortness of breath, a dry cough, shallow breathing, gradual weight loss, tiredness, and aching joints. The major symptoms of IPF are common, and similar to many other illnesses, but the continual progression of these symptoms is what distinguishes IPF from something like the common cold.
What is used to treat IPF?
Once the damage is done to the lungs, the scar tissue formation cannot be reversed. There is no cure for IPF but there are treatment options that help slow the disease such as Kinase inhibitors Nintedanib (Ofev) and Pirfenidone (Esbriet, Pirfenex, Pirespa). These medications help slow the decline in lung function from IPF. They may also help to prevent an unexpected and sudden worsening of symptoms over a period of days or weeks, and may prolong survival. These two drugs are the only two approved by the FDA.
How long can you live after being diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis?
The average survival rate after a diagnosis of IPF is 3 to 5 years. Keep in mind, this is an average and there are people who live much longer than 5 years with IPF.

DR. Allan Marks has helped my daughter two times and we cannot recommend them enough. My daughter has ADHD and can't wait in a waiting room forever. This was the fastest and easiest way to get my daughter diagnosed and pick up a script. One time we used this service when no other doctor was open. [...] My daughter didn't have to even leave the house in 6 degree weather (would have made her MORE SICK). She had severe sinus infection and Dr. was not only clear and nice but looked up holiday pharmacy hours ahead of time to make sure I could pick up the script in time! AWESOME! [...]
Wow. Wow. Wow.
This is so easy and quick. I had a cold virus that turned into a sinus infection. I pulled over on my way to a meeting to video chat w a doctor.
He was attentive, kind, and efficient. After a few questions, he diagnosed my ailment. The call took less than 10 mins.
Prescription was at the pharmacy later that day.
I will be a client for a long time. Thank you.
never review Apps, but this has been the quickest and most convenient doctor experience(s) I've ever had. It cost me no more than what I would have paid to visit an office. I've had two appointments and one was done in the comfort of my own living room and the second on my break at work. As a full time worker, full time student, and full time mom, the convenience cannot be beat. I met with Dr. Saremi who is very personable and kind. He immediately resolved my reasons for calling during both appointments. He was competent and trustworthy and valued my time. Can't recommend this enough.
