    My wife Mrs Asha Lakhapate was diagnosed IPF in Jan 2007.We had to stop the steroid treatment (Prednesone) due to side effects.We switched over to Ayurveda Medicines and life style change was made.
    Although IPF was in good control for 11 years , she died of heart attack in March 2017.
    Anybody interested in free guidance can contact me.
    Dhanyavad !!!
