Respiratory diseases such as asthma and COPD are well-known, but there is still too little information available on rare diseases such as interstitial lung disease (ILD). In order to increase awareness for ILD, Boehringer Ingelheim and Medix developed the content for a new online magazine: BELUNG.
You are probably unaware of just how much you rely on your respiratory system for you to function normally in daily life. Patients with ILD struggle for oxygen on an everyday basis. For many patients it takes a long time before they get the correct diagnosis, since ILD symptoms are very similar to those of asthma and COPD.
By sharing relevant content, such as interviews, research results and the latest news, BELUNG hopes to give patients some support. The information on the BELUNG website has been compiled with care. Medix editors have had interesting conversations with (international) experts, but also with patients themselves. The BELUNG website will soon be published in eight different languages.
BELUNG is intended for everyone involved in ILD. Medix is proud to contribute to this brand new online magazine and to increase the awareness for ILD. Check out the first online edition here!
