In this video from Boehringer Ingelheim Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis shared in September 2014, Dr. Luca Richeldi from the Center for Rare Lung Diseases at the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia in Italy, talks about the progression of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) and the quality of life patients can expect.

Find out about the early signs of pulmonary fibrosis.

Dr. Richeldi explains how treatments and symptoms of IPF will affect the quality of life for patients as time goes on. He talks about the impact of IPF and how it isn’t just felt by the patient, but also the patient’s family and loved ones as they struggle to come to terms with the disease’s progression and how it affects the person’s daily life.

Meet some PF patients and discover how the disease has affected their life.
