Newly Diagnosed

Learning that you have pulmonary hypertension can be overwhelming, but you’re not alone.

Like tens of thousands of other people diagnosed with PH, you have a compassionate and inspiring community of people ready to help. We are here to provide you with information and support as you adjust to your new life with PH.

While there’s currently no cure for PH, there are PH-specific therapies available to manage your symptoms and improve your quality of life. We know patients on treatment who have been living with PH for more than 20 years and counting.

The Pulmonary Hypertension Association offers an easy-to-read, yet comprehensive publication about PH.

“Navigating Pulmonary Hypertension: A Guide for Newly Diagnosed Patients,” is available in English and Spanish. You can download a digital copy or order the print version. The free guide provides an overview of diagnosis, treatment, symptoms and quality of life, as well as checklists, resources and questions to ask doctors.
