You may look into the keto diet because it does lower cholesterol naturally it sounds like a wild thing but if you read the book by Dr. Annette Bosworth MD. It’s very interesting. I am on it now since it is supposed to decrease inflammation. I feel more energetic too.

Hi there Frustrating.I believe that if there’s a possibility that you could feel better and I definitely didafter I started the treatments and yes the medications can be rough —-but doesn’t mean that you’re going to get any of the side effects. I was scared but I actually have not had any SE’s and I’ve been on treatment for about five weeks of five anabiotic‘s and I don’t cough 95% as much as I did and I was going through a big Kleenex box every day😫😫 now I don’t ——-that to me was well worth the treatment I am still a little fatigued and tired if I do more than one “bigger” thing a day, but I can contend with that if I take a nap in the middle of the day. Good luck to you in decisions. A Good Dr who knows NTM well, is a Must!!!
I hope you will make a decision best for you!!!!
Sincerely Judy

I have an AFFLOW VEST. It’s great— helps bring up phlegm. Just got it 2 months ago. No bill “yet”— medicare
It’s all battery operated. Use it 2x a day when I use my nebulizer. Feels good— nice case w/rollers to take places when you travel.

Hi Kathyhg! I love our condo pool and I love going underwater to swim. I ordered a good swim mask that goes over my nose and eyes. It works well for me. I keep my mouth shut— Not sure if ok by professionals —but—it’s fun.
