Staying My Healthiest

One of my friends had asked if I would share how I've been staying my healthiest on Cystic Life. ( so I thought I would share what I wrote on there for all you to read.

The last few times I was at the doctor, I was at my healthiest. I am currently at my healthiest. I was asked how I've been staying at my healthiest, and all I can say is I haven't changed much. I had recently started Zithromax 3x a week 2x a day 250mg. When I was in the hospital in May, after I got better they started me on it because studies have proven that Zithromax & Tobi together(which i've been on for a few years 28 days on 28 days off), fight off psudemonous(spelling) which I grew in my last culture. I haven't grown it in a very long time. The CF foundation actually now suggests that once you grow psudemonous you go on Zithromax. So That is what I've started, and then I had made a new years resolution of not eating any McDonalds, Burger King, or Hardees(as i would eat them quite a bit) and I have felt an enormous difference. I've cut back on the soda, and i've started eating healthier. That is what i've changed and so far i've been my healthiest i've ever been. So maybe nutrition and what you eat makes a different along with excersising and doing VEST definetly! 2 times a day or more. That is how i'm staying my healthiest.
