What is NTM Lung Disease and Who’s at Risk?
October 20, 2015
Managing a rare, chronic lung disease.
Dr. Leah Lande, a pulmonologist with Lankenau Medical Center, Philip Leitman, Co-Founder/President of NTM Info & Research, and NTM Patient, Betsy Nardi, join us to discuss NTM Lung Disease. NTM stands for Nontuberculous Mycobacteria. NTM lung infection is a chronic, incurable condition that can get progressively worse, and can be debilitating in some patients. Awareness and early diagnosis of this rare disease are crucial. NTM has some very familiar and common symptoms, such as a persistent cough, lack of energy, night sweats and fever, weight loss and shortness of breath. Dr. Leah Lande shares her expertise on NTM. And NTM Patient, Betsy Nardi, shares her story of her diagnosis and how she’s managing. You’ll also meet Philip Leitman, who, with his wife, Fern, started NTM Info & Research, an organization aimed at spreading awareness for this disease.
