Why Bronchitol Is SO GOOD!!!!

FDA advisory board has voted against Bronchitol (aka: Mannitol) ... BAD VOTE FDA!!!

Bronchitol has helped me in a way Kalydeco couldn't even do. I've had crackles in my chest since I was a teen. my doctor explained to me that people with crackles have a worse predicted outcome that someone who doesn't. Say a patient with 50% lung function with crackles vs a patient with 40% no crackle, the 40% patients future health is better! Kalydeco cleared my mucus, but with that came severe asthma symptoms (asthma runs in my family). These symptoms took my kalydeco peak FEV (lung function) from 65% to 50% (46% -48% before Ventolin/ depending on the day) after one month on Kalydeco my Fev went up to 55%. After just one month on this amazing new medicine my FEV went up 10%. It cleared the last stubborn plugs of mucus that Kalydeco was having trouble getting to. I have had NO bad side effect at all!!!
There's still a chance to turn this around America, if the CF community rally to petition the FDA/Government to change their mind the final decision on March 18th may be a positive one.

Please rethink your vote!!!
