In this short video from Boehringer Ingelheim Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis shared in September 2015, Dr. Toby Maher from the Royal Brompton Hospital in London, UK, talks about ways pulmonary fibrosis patients can adapt their lifestyle to improve their quality of life.

Find out what some pulmonary fibrosis patients have to say about everyday living with the disease.

Dr. Maher suggests that PF patients will be able to better manage their disease if they adopt a few lifestyle changes, such as eating a healthy balanced diet, exercising and reducing the amount of alcohol they consume. He also recommends PF patients get regular flu vaccinations and stay away from people who are ill to avoid picking up any infections over the winter months.
