    I was diagnosed in 2015. Went back for follow up and there was no indication of it . The Dr never said anything about it being inactive, just that he saw no more sarcoidosis. I have not had any problems. I refused to take the steroids they offered.

    Hi Carol

    I was diagnosed with sarcoidosis very recently, within the last 6 month. Diagnosis is from many clinical features rather than biopsies.

    Although recently diagnosed it's fairly certain from clinical signs and symptoms that I have had it for some years.

    Can I help you with specific questions?

    Yes 2015 inactive lung sarcoid, followed up for 2 years of pulmonary tests and scans and doctors believe I had sarcoid from early adulthood. Not needing any meds..... 2018 September was diagnosed with liver sarcoid and it’s active, liver byopsy proved..... my blood flow to my spleen is normal so no meds needed at this timesmile I see a sarcoid specialist at Boston medical center 👍🏼 If blood flow was backwards doctors would have me on meds. I’ll follow up many times with specialists to keep close eye one it, I also once a month I need to have blood work done test my iron... irons been on the lower side. 

    How’ve you been and where do you have sarcoidosis? Do you see a specialist? Feel free to chime in with me👍🏼

    Active no but I was  diagnosed  8 years ago and what I have found out it affects everyone different. Which is a problem for the docs. I know finding a great  General practitioner that will help you and guide you thru this is a life saver.
