Does Anyone Have Auto-immune Issue Causing PH?

Does Anyone Have Auto-immune Issue Causing PH?

I recently tested positive for scleroderma associated with my PAH. Does anyone use medication for this?

Pulmonary Hypertension is the umbrella under which Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension falls. Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension is a form of Pulmonary Hypertension. It is Group1 in the World Health Organization classifications. I was diagnosed with Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension secondary to Limited Systemic Sclerosis (Scleroderma) in 2012. I take Hydroxychloroquine and Prednisone for my Scleroderma and Ambrisentan, Sildenafil, and Furosemide for PAH. I also take a few non-prescription supplements on the advice of my PAH team which includes my Rheumatologist, Cardiologist and Pulmonologist.
