Any New Treatments for Sarcoidosis Besides Medications?

Q:
Any new treatments for sarcoidosis besides medications?

A:
There is no cure for sarcoidosis, but it may get better on its own over time. When treatments needed, generally they fall into two categories—medications and practices for good health.

Here come good health practices:

  • Drink 8 to 10 glasses of water a day to stay hydrated.
  • Eat a well-balanced diet with a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables.
  • Exercise regularly, manage your weight.
  • Quit smoking.
  • Sleep 6 to 8 hours each night.
  • Avoid excessive amounts of calcium-rich foods, vitamin D, and sunlight. Sunlight received from everyday activities is acceptable.
  • Avoid being exposed to dust, chemicals, fumes, gases, toxic inhalants, and other substances that can harm your lungs.

Please ask relevant professionals for more details if possible.
