I just need someone who sees this all the time to sugest and book. Example everyone of family friends and patient that get a dx of breast canvcer they all get a copy of Dr Loves "the breast book"} . Im looking to litigate flow thru injuries caused and side effects caused by the infection. Please dont belabor me with ideas that it is not contagious blah blah blah thats was never my point however occupational exposure does occur and if said person is not provided correct gear to do certain work such as cleaning out heating and cooling vents in a prison where birds and bats and other animals have left fecal material for years and years then that occupational no traditonally fouind in the homw or the dreaded cliche " it is ubiquitous in the environment" blah blah blah please just give me a good reference book thank you all for the help and nope my typing has not improved but my language has 🙂

Thu, Mar 12 12:30pm · Need to order medical book on MAC TB treatment and side effects in MAC & Bronchiectasis

Im asking a moderator and or provider for for guidance an a concise book that outlines flow thru injuries and side effects caused by the disease and the treatment.. [Example 69 percent of the people with dx of mac-tb will be dx with asthma with in two years following treatment another example which effected me is optic neruitis caused by ethambutol another is dilation of thoracic aorta. ]. My name is Dr McClure it doesn’t have to go into much detail just maybe a meta analysis research on the topics or maybe there is an entire book out their devoted to what i am looking for… Or if there are any extra older book that fit this request, maybe it was used by a provider for reference ?

Jan 29, 2019 · eyes my "Blurry" vision hasn't went away in MAC & Bronchiectasis

12/2017 my eyes were great fantastic now year later taking the big three for 14 months now I have shitty blurred vision and eye doctor examined me and said it is just old age you need glasses ( this is at the same VA that took three plus months to dx the MAC. during that time stomach pain was caused dialtion of aorta and needed open heart surgery for ascending aorta- there was nothing wrong with me it was in my head which I accepted- after digital exam i was told i had syphilis, gonorrhea and cellulitis my GF loved that one- put in isolation due to Hemoptysis,200ml one cough told I just had pneumonia and AFB was neg then frantic call to me at 8 am pronto time three weeks later told hey you got TB and by the way probably HIV GF loved that one too . So yeah im picking bones
WTH soooooooooooooooo need info to confirm blurry vision caused by drugs Mac TB and additional special testing to confirm it not JUST aging but connected to use of drugs and or infection itself. i have the regular ethambutol stuff and some ramfipin but i need something real juicy like there is no definitive testing that 100% confirms nor denies injury to the eyes. also if people are going to court to prove they got this outside their home i just set president at hearing in August that yeah it passed thru the environment from one patient to another. so to recap looking for support for manifestations of eye irregularities causes by TB and or its treatment. Thank you all signed dude whos name starts with licensed Dr. and ends with licensed nurse…..

Topic:The Recovery of Mycobacterium avium-intracellulareComplex (MAC) from the Residential Bathrooms of Patients with Pulmonary MAC 

ABSTRACT:The distribution of Mycobacterium avium-intracellulare complex (MAC) in residences was examined. MAC was only recovered from bathrooms but not from other sites of residences. The appearance ratio in the bathrooms of patients with pulmonary MAC was significantly higher than that in healthy volunteers' bathrooms (P = .01).

The Mycobacterium avium-intracellulare complex (MAC) is an opportunistic pathogen. However, MAC occasionally causes a progressive lung disease, leading to death, even in patients without a history of lung diseases or immunodeficiency [1]. MAC is widely distributed in rivers, soil, birds, farm animals, public pools, hot tubs, and hot water supplies [2]. In the absence of proof of person-to-person spread of MAC, it is now generally accepted that environmental sources are the reservoir for most human infections caused by MAC [1, 2]. The number of cases of pulmonary MAC disease has been increasing in many countries, especially in advanced countries rather than in developing countries [2]. O'Brien et al. [3] hypothesized that the increased prevalence of MAC lung disease relates to the change in our hygiene habits from bathing to showering. However, the distributions of MAC in individual residences have not been examined. Therefore, we investigated the distribution of MAC in residences to assess the hypothesis of O'Brien and colleagues. Furthermore, we compared the recovery ratio between patients' and healthy volunteers' houses. We also compared the isolates recovered from patients' houses with those from their respective sputum samples using restriction fragment—length polymorphism and PFGE.

(Im very well educated and im not nice to anyone that just regurgitates what they have read or what they have been told so please be mindful of what you read here. ) I was dam lucky to find this study and other was well so here is just a taste for now. Oxygen is ubiquitous in the air we breath that is y we breath it . Most of these physician just vomit up a quick little statement MACTB bacteria(s) is "ubiquitous" and blah blah blah there is no correlation between infected individuals and add (your own noun, and adverb) ( mine happens to be nurses caring for TB and HIV hospice patients in the prison) read the study because it should anger some such as it has me..It comes down common sense. TB bacterie is not ubiquitous it does have common reservoirs ( infected patients perhaps should be called proxy reservoirs, Maybe) but they are reservoirs none the less. Im looking for studies not the regurgitated studies quoted and given too you by your lazy infectious disease provider. Final thoughts to any providers reading this don't be lazy don't say it is not person to person contracted .. say it is low… Aerosolized water (showering those infected macro-aspiration aka coughing, and those on ventalors. ) dont say it is ubiquitous bc that is false. Be smart providers tell you patients family out breaks are common thats just being honest. ( I do respect all BUT I am honestly pissed about the rigidity I have experienced and maybe not purposely done but the untruthfulness of what i have been reading by those that have a platform to speak up)
