Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

How can I improve my immunity for pneumonia since I already had it five times? Once when I was a kid, thrice in high school and currently at college. Please help.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com. Pneumonia is a lung infection. It is a serious problem if you do not care about it in timely. You get pneumonia due to infection with bacteria, virus or fungus or if your immunity goes down. You said you had pneumonia five times in your lifetime. As you had it with a gap of some period, it isnot recurrent pneumonia. Generally speaking, you can improve your immunity by taking good nutrition, green leafy vegetables, nuts, and doing regular exercise. Good sleep is also very important to this. Avoiding stress and anxiety will help to improve immunity. You can get vaccination such as pneumococcal vaccine and influenza vaccine for better immunity. So, immunity is effect of all. No single medicine or diet will improve immunity. Simultaneously, you have to do some lifestyle modifications like hand hygiene and not eating any fast food. This all will help you build better immunity over a period of time.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
