HELLO & WELCOME TO HCM FORUM

LUNG TRANSPLANTATION IS THE ONLY THERAPEUTIC TREATMENT AVAILABLE FOR SEVERE CASES

TILL YOU CAN CANTINUE PREDNISOLONE AND IF SHE IS NOT GETTING NO RELIEF THEN YOU SHOULD CONSULT PHYSICIAN AND PULMONOLOGIST

YOU CAN ALSO GO IMMUNOSUPPRESIVE THERAPY SUCH AS CYCLOPHOSPHAMIDE, AZATHIOPRINE, CYCLOSPORINE AND METHOTREXATE

TAKE CARE & GET WELL SOON
