Is there a cure for sarcoidosis?

ANSWER

There's no cure for sarcoidosis, but the disease may get better on its own over time. Many people with sarcoidosis have mild symptoms and don't require any treatment. Treatment, when it is needed, is given to reduce symptoms and to keep affected organs in proper working order.
