Living with NTM

Living with a mycobacterial infection requires a skilled and experienced medical team to design and implement a treatment protocol. The success of your treatment relies on YOU, your doctor, your respiratory therapist, and your medicines.

Fortunately, you have the ability to play an active role in the progress of your treatment. You should be fully committed to wellness and seek the support of family and friends. Your lifestyle and routines may have to change. The changes you make are to improve your health and lengthen your life, and with a positive attitude these can be rewarding rather than burdensome.

Once you have fully discussed your condition and treatment plan with your doctor, you have the responsibility to implement your treatment and follow through with full commitment.
