Preventing pulmonary fibrosis thanks to knowledge of your DNA

Pulmonary fibrosis is a chronic, irreversible disease in which excessive scar tissue (fibrosis) is formed in the lungs. Due to the thickening of the lung tissue, the lungs are unable to absorb sufficient oxygen, resulting in shortness of breath and a lack of energy. The disease usually affects people over 50 years of age. Breathing in toxic or organic substances can be a cause of pulmonary fibrosis.

Pulmonary fibrosis and heredity

The risk of pulmonary fibrosis is determined to some extent by hereditary factors. To date it has been scientifically proven that a number of genes play a role in this. On the basis of your DNA it is therefore possible to see clearly whether you have an increased or reduced risk of pulmonary fibrosis.
