When a Cough is More than a Cold or the Flu with Julie Philley and Philip Leitman December may trigger peak cold and flu season, but symptoms, such as coughing and fatigue, could be a sign of something else. These symptoms could also be due to a progressive and chronic condition called nontuberculous mycobacterial (NTM) lung disease. Everyone is exposed to NTM bacteria during their daily lives, as NTM can be found in everyday items, such as tap water, showerheads, steam from hot tubs and soil from parks and gardens. While most people will not develop NTM lung disease, people with a history of lung conditions like bronchiectasis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or asthma are at an even greater risk, because damage from these conditions can make it easier for NTM to infect the lungs. The symptoms of NTM lung disease are similar to other lung conditions, which often causes delayed diagnosis of the condition. Those who have it may not even know it for months or sometimes years. In some cases, the disease can cause severe, even permanent damage to the lungs, so early detection and management are crucial to improving patient outcomes.

Did you know the Health Insurance Marketplace open enrollment period ends December 15? with Noah Lang. With less than two weeks to go, a new poll from Kaiser says only 24 percent of self-employed people know the deadline to get health insurance coverage. That's not surprising, given the lack of marketing this year from the government. But it is a problem when you consider the cost of healthcare is a major concern for 75 percent of Americans (particularly given that medical debt is the number-one reason people hear from debt collection agencies).
