Hi all, Can anyone tell me how the consultants officially diagnose IPF? do they have to do biopsies or look into the lungs to get a proper diagnoses? or do they diagnose on the strength of scans, breathing tests ect? I have had all the latter tests as asked for by my respiratory cons, who has not given me a diagnoses, but my rheumy cons has given me a diagnosis of fibrosis. Both these consultants do not work together in the management of health problems. Thank you.
P.S Does anyone know the opening times of the BLF helpline? Thanks.
