What signs of chronic or new Cpn infection are indicated by the results of a dose of NAC? (maybe MORE than one dose)??
After 20 years of sinus drip, no sense of smell, and no other symptoms, I suddenly awaken to "hot pipes" late at night , intermittant night time sinus headache, and a 24/7 frequent,loose, bronchitis sounding cough. No fever. I always mask before I enter the pigeon loft. I have an ancient history of hayfever and asthma, which I have never allowed to interfere with my adult life. 20 yeaqrs ago I had a severe upper respiratory infection, fever of 103, and an allergic reaction to the 2000 mg/ day Penicillin prescribed by my Kaiser doctor. I was advised to immediately discontinue the Penicillin . Nothing was prescribed in its place. This is why i suspect Cpn.
At age 73, i would love to live intact and healthy enough to contribute to and to enjoy Erica's M.S. improvements and my 29 year old daughter's future marriage and family. (She will graduate from Nurse Anesthesia School in December.)
With borderline high BP 140/75, Type II diabetes controlled with diet, borderline low LDL, and low Vit.D which I supplement w/ 5000 D3 units daily, I would like to know if Cpn. is rearing its ugly head. I'm not SICK yet(!) And DO NOT want to be: hence this question.
What should I look for in an NAC empirical "test??
Again, thanks to all of you who are there for all of us. I dearly appreciate those who take the time and effort to share their experience and knowlege. I wish ALL of us WELL!
