Living with & managing sarcoidosis
Prior to being diagnosed with sarcoidosis, Romaine had never heard of the disease. Her symptoms started with a dry cough, which became far worse about a year later. Unable to speak a sentence without coughing, Romaine began taking medicine to treat her sarcoidosis. Also, she began to focus on following a healthy lifestyle, including eating well and being physically active. By following her treatment plan and making lifestyle changes, Romaine is able to live a full, active life.
