Ok,, thank you.
You can add me. Worked as a RN 45 years.
I hope it helps. I haven’t needed any heartburn medication since starting it.
This is Sharon. I did have have my immune system tested and I have a healthy immune system, yet have MAc. I have started taking the Jarrow Probiotic recommended by the Jewish Hospital (thank you to the person who posted about this). Those 25 billion probiotic soldiers are really doing good work! Already I have less heart burn and sleeping better. I am beathing easier also.
I too have been told I am of the Lady Windemere type. But I am not buying that. I feel the root cause is silent aspiration due to the acid reflux at night. The moist lung environment is a breading ground for the MAC. Sleeping with my head elevated, avoiding late night eating and drinking I believe will help with that. I live in Omaha, NE.
I was diagnosed 9 months ago. I am not taking meds. I am 69, white, a retired RN, 5’2″, weigh 120 lbs. I play pickleball and do zumba, so I do a lot of aerobics. I have gerd. I was a pack a day smoker for 20 years and quite when I was 36 years old.
University of Nebraska is doing a genetic study of patients with MAC, according to my pulmonologist.
I love reading the posts from everyone! I wish we could have a giant group hug!
I am new to this sight. I am 69 and have been diagnosed for 8 months. I have GERD also, but otherwise healthy. I am not on any meds. Can you advise me which probiotic to take? There are so many to choose from.
