      I lost 20 kg (about  45 pounds) to reach the required BMI for transplant. This was mainly through dieting. I have always liked food, but given the circumstances, dieting was surprisingly easy.

      For those of you that wrote about end-stage well… when I was diagnosed in 2014 SEVERAL different medical facilities said I was at end-stage pulmonary fibrosis, interstitial lung disease have 1.5 yrs left to start preparing. Well I’m still here my pulse ox is 10 points higher I attribute to exercise, diet green tea extract capsules.   Drs do not know  & they should not be giving you end-of-life dates that messed me up so bad.

      I’m still not on oxygen. mind you, I can’t run a marathon but never could lol.

      God bless. Live everyday stop thinking about dying I lost 2 great yrs w my daughter being scared of hoping out etc… that I’d get worse & die on her but how did locking myself in my home help her???

      I too lost over 40 pounds, but it wasn’t (and isn’t) easy. I truth, part of my success wasn’t because of my new dietary plans…it was due to OFEV. That drug was, for me, a GI catastrophe. After a year and a half, I had to give it up and went to Esbriet and stomach returned to normal, and I got my appetite back. Which means I am dieting again to hit the transplants team target BMI. The irony of this isn’t lost on me 🙂
