Timing of nebulizing - before or after meals
My husband, who has Bronchiectasis, is currently testing negative for MAC following 11 months of killer antibiotics, which have been suspended after they came way too close to ending him over this past summer.
He nebulizes with albuterol followed by 7% saline twice a day. Some of the comments within discussions that I have seen in this group suggest that there be a 2-3 hour time lag before or after a meal, before nebulizing. The same was suggested on timing of sputum collection for culture purposes.
His ID/Pulmonology team at Johns Hopkins have never provided any advice on the subject. Since we have gotten most of our knowledge and survival tips from this group, what are the best practice options you have found to be most workable? Any thoughts or input are welcome.
You have been an invaluable source of information, guidance and support which has been very much appreciated.
