My son a retired NYPD captain recently
Found out he has Sarcoidosis for 3 yrs.
It seems to be from rescue work at 9/11
Anything information you can give me
would be greatly appreciated. He is 48
yrs old and it presently in remission.
At present, the cause of sarcoidosis is unknown and there is no special treatment. Hormone is currently the first choice, but there is no uniform conclusion about the indications, treatment, dosage and efficacy of hormones. Once used, hormones should be used for at least 1 year.
