Hi,

Prednisone improves symptoms but not Lung Function in Sarcoidosis.: Presented at CHEST

The use of oral prednisone reduces symptoms of dyspnea in people with sarcoidosis affecting the lungs, but it does not have an impact on pulmonary function.
Sarcoidosis ( can affect any organ in your body, however, it's more likely to occur in some organs than in others. The disease usually starts in the lungs, skin, and/or lymph nodes especially the lymph nodes in your chest). Is rare when you look at the general population, but amongst minorities the disease is a lot more common. It can affect virtually every organ, and the cause is not known. It predominantly involves the lungs and over the years can lead to respiratory failure.

I wish you nothing but the best... from a caring individual.
