Hello. Not sure where I should be posting this question but was wondering – has anyone heard or read or personally had success with fighting MAC with severe dietary changes alone? My sister was on the Big 3 – 18 months in she began losing vision so stopped cold turkey. She is now on a diet with NO gluten, sugar, dairy or meat. She is doing very well with her lung cavities shrinking. I, too, have MAC & want to avoid medication but her diet seems so radical hence seeking some feedback. I found nothing online in support of this. Any input appreciated. Take care.

I would be skeptical of any extreme diet curing MAC or any other infection. Good nutrition can help your body fight infection, but adequate protein, vitamins and minerals are big parts of that requirement, and difficult to meet on a limited diet.
Is your sister using a nebulizer with medication or 7% saline, airway clearance or a percussion vest? If so, those may be the reasons for improvement, and not her strict dirt.
