Monitoring

CONTINUED MONITORING OF YOUR PF is a very important part of maintaining your health. Through monitoring, you and your care providers can determine how well you are responding to your treatment, whether your disease is stable, and what next steps should be taken. Regular interactions with your care providers will also help ensure that you receive the most current and best possible PF treatments.

Your clinical monitoring pattern will vary dependent upon your specific type of PF. Regardless of the underlying cause of your PF, continued monitoring is a vital component in your treatment.Talk with your provider about how frequently you should see them and what steps need to be taken to ensure that your disease is properly managed.
