Diagnosed with bronchiectasis & NTM abscessus/boletti. So confused as to what part water plays in this disease. I've read different things and not sure what's being too cautious or not cautious enough. One article recommended "whole house water filtration". Is that necessary? Then cleaning devices use sterile water....tap water boiled? what about purified water? For drinking/bathing......is a filter advised for kitchen sink/bathroom? Not sure what is overkill and what is not. Advice??Have not started treatment yet. I keep hearing the "treatment is worse than the disease" and I feel fine at this time. Does anyone know at what point treatment is required and how the treatment can be managed?
