Pellegrino - could it be the cause for MAC?!
I have been a longtime lurker here on this forum ever since my mom was diagnosed with MAC over a year and a half ago.
She has been getting treatment at NJH for the past year. They put her on the “big three” daily since she began treatment.
The issue is that she has been testing positive for months… until one day my fiancé pointed out that perhaps the water she was drinking constantly on a day to day basis could be the cause. (Pellegrino)
It could very well be unrelated however ever since stopping- her cultures have been coming up negative for 5 months now.
Based on my understanding MAC seems to have a preference for a certain type of person: thin women.
The reason for my post is to try to somehow find a common link and cause – I understand it’s very well likely not that simple and maybe I am naive for thinking this but what if the cause and therefore cure to MAC is something so simple like the kind of water you drink.
Does anyone else here drink Pellegrino day to day?
I look forward to hearing from you all and like everyone else, I am praying for a speedy recovery for everyone who has been diagnosed with this stubborn bacteria!
