Litalir Interstitial Lung Disease Causes and Reviews
Interstitial lung disease is the name for a large group of diseases that inflame or scar the lungs. The inflammation and scarring make it hard to get enough oxygen. The scarring is called pulmonary fibrosis.
Breathing in dust or other particles in the air is responsible for some types of interstitial lung diseases. Specific types include
Black lung disease among coal miners, from inhaling coal dust
Farmer's lung, from inhaling farm dust
- Asbestosis, from inhaling asbestos fibers
- Siderosis, from inhaling iron from mines or welding fumes
- Silicosis, from inhaling silica dust
Other causes include autoimmune diseases or occupational exposures to molds, gases, or fumes. Some types of interstitial lung disease have no known cause.
Treatment depends on the type of exposure and the stage of the disease. It may involve medicines, oxygen therapy, or a lung transplant in severe cases.

What could be the side effect of Litalir 500mg on me. I was diagnosed of essential thrombocytosis. I started to take the drug since 2005. My hematologist prescribed me to take it on occasions only if my platelet count is high like 500 above. I take it sometimes once a day for a month. Sometimes in a month I dont take it. I see my doctor every month.
