Sun, Jul 21 9:35am · High Humidity and Lung Health for all breathing problems in Lung Health

My husband was diagnosed with ild caused by dermatomyositis early last fall. The lung disease has stabilized, and he is doing well. We live in the Midwest, and this recent batch of heat and humidity was worse for him than the cold from the polar vortex last winter.

Sun, Jul 21 9:30am · Starting on Prednisone - I am not sure in Lung Health

Today is actually Prednisone freedom day at our house. My husband has been taking it for dermatomyositis and accompanying ild since September of last year. Not our favorite drug, but it limited the damage until the autoimmune drug (Imuran) could stabilize him. He is doing well. I would take it, but talk to your PCP about your concerns.
