ILD(Interstitial Lung Disease) and Lupus?
Hi all. I recently had a PFT test come back abnormal so my dr has ordered a CT scan to check into why. When I went to get the scan done I noticed she put evaluation for ILD on there and where I thought I knew what it stood for I wasn't sure exactly what it was about. After researching I found its called Interstital Lung Disease and can occur with and without lupus. I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this and what happened? My tests were done mainly due to shortness of breath especially when exercising and sometimes when eating. If anyone has any info please let me know! Thanks. -Brittanee
