Thanks for your explanation. Now that you have explained that so well….can you or anyone explain what the relationship is between MAC and Bronchiectasis? Obviously there are similarities but beyond that?

Bronchiectasis does not allow lungs to clean themselves as normal healthy lungs. Therefore the MAC bacteria once in the lungs is not cleared out as it would be in otherwise healthy lungs, leaving a nice comfy home for the MAC bacteria to settle.
