Lung Disorder

I was dx with hypersensitivity pneumonitis 1 1/2 yrs ago and I am on oxygen, as needed, and prednisone.  My oxygen level has been dropping into the 70's and I have a lot of breathing issues.  My level comes up with rest and/or by using the oxygen.  I also have sleep apnea and use a cpap at night and I am considering also using oxygen at night hoping it will help me get more rest.  I am concerned about using prednisone all the time although it is a smaller dose (5 mg. daily) and I am trying to be more aware of my diet as I was told it would be good for me to eliminate carbs.  Does anyone else have any suggestions to help with the breathing issues, diet, medication and/or vitamins, etc. to help with this condition?
