Bronchiolitis Obliterans with Organizing Pneumonia (BOOP)

Posted by oakbourne @oakbourne, Aug 19, 2019

I’ve had life-long silent Celiac Disease and didn’t know it. Bloated stomach and Brain Fog. Internal shakiness and fatigue. Then I was diagnosed with Microscopic Colitis, (MC). Okay! Then I was diagnosed with BOOP Pneumonia. It’s Idiopathic or doctors don’t know what causes BOOP. My lungs were filled with inflammation. The doctor did an X-ray and biopsy of my lungs and I witnessed my lungs were pure White, INFLAMMATION!!! I found out that Gut and Lung tissue are similar or the same. You can die from BOOP PNEUMONIA. I was lucky! I survived BOOP. I was prescribed Prednisone long term. HORRORS! I did research and ordered the book – “BOOP: You’re The Boss”. You can cure BOOP with Macrolides – clarithromycin and azithromycin, and bypass the deadly steroids. I informed my pulmonogist and that’s what he uses now. I think life-long silent Celiac Disease and Microscopic Colitis caused BOOP PNEUMONIA. I know MC is an autoimmune disorder where your gut is inflamed and irritated. The inflammation has to go somewhere, so it goes to the lungs. That’s my humble opinion and two cents worth. Don’t play around with BOOP PNEUMONIA!

Hi friends and people who have suffered from BOOP. I ordered the book, BOOP: You're The Boss. You can manage it. Five Steps to Take Charge of Your Boop. Gary R. Epler, M.D., wrote the book and is an inspiration on the disease. I informed my lung specialist who had no idea. Please look up Dr. Gary Epler. He has a treasure trove of information that can help you. Dorothy Rockwell Olson Williams
