Interstitial Lung Disease Treatment (ILD)

Interstitial lung disease or ILD includes a very large group of conditions that cause inflammation and scarring in the alveoli (the air sacs of the lungs). Through these air-sacs, oxygen travels into the main bloodstream. When these air-sacs are scarred, they are not able to expand. Thus, less oxygen travels in the blood.

Interstitial Lung Disease affects the other parts of the lungs such as the airways, blood vessels, and the lung lining.

Types of Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD)

Interstitial Lung Disease includes more than 200 conditions. A few of them are:

  • Asbestosis: Breathing in asbestos fibers causing inflammation and scarring in the lungs.
  • Coal worker’s pneumoconiosis: This is a condition in the lungs due to exposure in coal dust. Its other name is black lung disease.
  • Bronchiolitis obliterans: In this condition, the bronchioles or the smallest airways are blocked.
  • Chronic silicosis: This is caused by breathing in mineral silica
  • Sarcoidosis: In this disease small clumps of inflammatory cells are formed in the lungs and lymph glands.
