What Causes Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF)?

What Causes Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF)? | Mentally Speaking | Scoop.it

In most cases, however, the cause of lung scarring isn’t known. These cases are called idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). With IPF, doctors think that something inside or outside of the lungs attacks them again and again over time.

 

These attacks injure the lungs and scar the tissue inside and between the air sacs. This makes it harder for oxygen to pass through the air sac walls into the bloodstream.

Bill Vick's curator insight, July 20, 4:36 AM

The most common signs and symptoms are:

Shortness of breath. This usually is the main symptom of IPF. At first, you may be short of breath only during exercise. Over time, you'll likely feel breathless even at rest.A dry, hacking cough that doesn't get better. Over time, you may have repeated bouts of coughing that you can't control.

Other signs and symptoms that you may develop over time include:

Rapid, shallow breathingGradual, unintended weight lossFatigue (tiredness) or malaise (a general feeling of being unwell)Aching muscles and jointsClubbing, which is the widening and rounding of the tips of the fingers or toes
