Support for Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis

NYU Langone doctors focus on preserving quality of life for people with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. They offer supportive services that complement treatment and can help improve your breathing and keep you as active as possible. 

Tobacco Cessation

The cause of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis is not completely understood, but smoking is considered a significant risk factor. Doctors strongly encourage people with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis not to smoke. NYU Langone’s Tobacco Cessation Programs can help you to quit for good. 

Emotional Support

Being diagnosed with a chronic condition such as idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis can lead to feelings of anxiety. NYU Langone counselors are available to speak with you and your family and to offer guidance on living with the condition.
