One of our members is looking for information on NTM and writes: “Hi everyone. I got a phone call yesterday from my CF doctor telling me I grew a new bacteria in my sputum that was cultured at my last appointment a few weeks ago. She asked if I have ever heard of NTM or MAC or if I’ve ever grown this before? I’ve not heard of this nor have I ever grown it. She went on to tell me I had a positive result and it can be in your lungs for a long time before it shows up and since i normally grow Psuedomonas and Staph that it can be hard to tell when im having a flare if it’s caused by one of the two or the NTM which is just now being shown in my sputum.  She said I may have to go on IV antibiotics for a year… I’m confused about this new bacteria and what I’ve been around or done anything different? Can any of my fellow CFers that have tested positive for NTM give me any more information about this?”
