Is there any treatment for Interstitial lung disease ?

Whether there is any treatment/ medicine for Interstitial lung disease which can cure this disease? My mother (58 yrs) is suffering in Interstitial lung disease since last 3 months. Chest X-ray showed B/L infiltrates, ANA -ve, RA -ve, Colonoscopy showed rectal+recto sigmoid ulcer, HRCT showed interstitial lung disease. HRCT chest was reviewed to find extensive interstitial thickening with GGO NSIP like picture. Transbronchial biopsy revealed non-specific interstitial fibroisis. ECHO showed border line LVH, diastolic dysfunction, mild TR, IVC engorged, respiratory variation absent, turbulent flow seen at draining site of hepatic vein. Patient was having postural change in BP with reeling of head & tinnitus . She is taking the following medicines: Tab Pan (40), Tab Thyronorm (25 mcg), Cap Gemcal (500 mg), Cap Alpha D3, Tab Stemetil MD (5), Tab Stugeron (25), Tab Nurvmax (75), Tab Dilzem CD (90), Tab Mucomix (600), tab Azuran (50 mg), Syp Looz, Tab Rivotril (0.5), tab Gemidro (150), Tab Prednisolone (40 mg), tab Vertin (24), Cap Orofer XT, calcirol Granules. All the doctors are saying there is no medicine for this disease & the above medicines are only to give her relief not to cure the disease. I am really feeling hopeless. If really there is any treatment for the same? Please help me.

Thanks for the query

Your doctors are telling the truth thre is only symptomatic treament fr the ILD, prednisolone which has been given is to reduce or rather slow down the worsening of the ILD, if u r in europe/USA lung transplantaton can be tried but they are expensve
U r in the right treatment for the ILD
