I was diagnosed with sarcoid in 1975. My diagnosis was made by comparing lung and lymph node biopsies. I would say that my symptoms were severe, as I was hospitalized twice for my condition. The medications that were offered to me had side affects that were, in my opinion, more severe than the symptoms. I found a holistic doctor and he started me on massive doses of vitamin c with bioflavanoids. I believe I probably started with at least 20 thousand mgs per day of C and 1000-1500 mg of bioflavanoids per day (remember that you cannot overdose on these vitamins, what your body doesn't use, you flush). At any rate, my internist referred to me as "super sarcoid" and actually wrote a couple of articles on my case. I have been symptom free for 20+ years ... although I still take the vitamin c complex ever day (approximately 4000 mg of c and 500 mg of bioflavanoids. One other thing, prior to being diagnosed, I had a lot of respiratory problems throughout my youth, including many bouts with bronchitis ... since taking the vitamin c blend, I have maybe had two colds in 20+ years. I'm not sure if this works for everyone, but it may be worth looking into. Good luck.
