What are the treatment options for restrictive Lung Disease and are the effective?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S

Ask Free Question
Treatment for restrictive lung disease varies depending on the specific type of the disease you are diagnosed with. Your options may include lung transplantation, inhalers, oxygen replacement, antibiotics, expectorants, and chemotherapy. The best treatment will depend upon the nature of your condition and its severity. When restrictive lung disease is a result of fibrosis, no long-term or curative treatment is possible, so treatments like anti-inflammatory medication help to reduce swelling and further scarring.

(e) take half a glass of warm water to which 1/4 tsp freshly ground turmeric and a piece of black pepper (crushed) are mixed properly, post dinner, for 5 days. (f) streamline your diet and lifestyle.

Please follow steps (d) & (e) as mentioned above only if you have no allergy or other issues taking them. As regards your issue with bone, you may please consult an ent specialist who needs to examine you clinically and advise diagnostics as appropriate to figure out any constitutional deformities or any sort of growth in your nose that is causing problems and then advise accordingly.

Hello lybrate user, - correct your food habits and lifestyle to come out of your issues. - avoid sour foods, always have freshly prepared food - have a glass of warm water after dinner - take decoction of ginger and jeera twice a day before food - you need some physical exercise or adopt yogasanas - as you have dry cough that might be causing back pain. - have 5-6 tulsi leaves daily twice before food - apply some medicated oils like ksheerabala taila to get strength to the back. Thank you.

These are signs of hysteria and breathing is really important to calming yourself down. This is a fear-based behavior and can be very difficult to treat because you have found an unhealthy adaptation to a normal fear which you feel is impossible to resolve. Apart from regular and aerobic exercising, you must also visit a gym to build a good body image. You can go for personal grooming classes too. While regular vigorous exercise develops your body, the regimen will also enlarge your heart and help you handle stressful situations much more competently than others who don’t exercise. Dress well, eat well, sleep well and conduct yourself well in social circles to build confidence. Perform well in your studies and work, and feel good about your achievements. You could also go for hypnosis sessions to build your self-image from within. Now, remember that all your problems are in your mind: spiritual wellness, faith and prayer will boost your confidence really well. Emotional wellness will take care of the fear factor. There are lots of affirmations, if said three times at a time, everyday, they will gradually strengthen your concept of yourself. Yoga and meditation will also build you up. Speaking to a counselor will give you personal assistance in pursuing these goals.

Sir I am suffering from endobronchial tuberculosis .i am taking akt4 last 15 day but my uric acid level is high (9). What will be best treatment for tb.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS

Your must continue the treatment. The first thing you should do is to eat foods that are high in fiber, This is because fiber rich foods absorb uric acid from the blood. Your kidneys then 'throw' out the excess uric acid. Try to eat Oatmeal, Spinach, cauliflowers and Isabgol in milk if possible.  Please use olive oil to cook your food. Kindly avoid vegetable oils because they become unhealthy when heated twice. This leads to rancid fat in the body. These destroy vitamin E, that in turn controls uric acid levels. Olive oil also curbs uric acid by itself.  Vitamin C chewable tablets taken 500 mg daily lower uric acid levels within 4 to 8 weeks.  Try to stop intake of sweets, cakes and pastries. Saturated fats are bad for you.  Many fruits have got potent anti-oxidant properties, like celery seeds, grapes and tomatoes, and these prevent harmful toxins from attacking your organs - releasing uric acid.
