More About the Book
The NTM Handbook is a 103-page eBook written by me, Donita Simpson, a NTM patient myself. It contains information for patients and their families about NTM. It explains the illness and provides information about diagnosis, treatment and regaining health.

Topics include:

What is NTM?
Who Gets NTM?
How is NTM Contracted?
What are the Symptoms of NTM?
How is NTM Diagnosed?
How is NTM Treated?
Regaining and Maintaining Health

The handbook also contains a resource list, glossary and templates for keeping track of medication and protein intake.

When I first learned I had NTM, I was bewildered. It took me a long time to research the topic and understand the diagnosis. As a result of my experience, I thought I could provide a resource that might save others all the time it took me to find information. The book is written in plain language for a layperson by a layperson; however, it should not be considered a substitute for professional medical advice.
