    Default Winter Rise in Renal AAV Cases, Possibly Due to Infections, Reported in Study

    Just after Xmas I flew to Baltimore right in the middle of this arctic blast and you would not believe the people walking around these airports in this season...coughing...sneezing...like a plague. I was holding my breath like no tomorrow trying to maneuver through the crowds in the terminals. I used the hand sanitizer like my life depended on it. Had a whiskey at the bar in the airport and the bartender sneezed...and poof I was gone. Thankfully both my flights there and back, no one was coughing up a lung on the plane...

    Keep the purell handy and stay away from the sick if possible to stay healthy....

    Patients are more likely to develop anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA)-associated vasculitis (AAV) that affects their kidneys in the winter months, likely due to environmental factors that promote disease-triggering infections, a study reports.

    I'd consider wearing a mask if I were to travel.

    I had one on me. No one was losing a lung coughing on the plane so I did not don the mask. Plus lifting the mask to drink my beer would've been a hassle. I will be honest and say when I see people with them on, I'm immediately wondering "what does this freak have"....LOL I am sure some thought the same of me....

    Hi Bing, I just read your post about traveling, and to think that I basically stayed home to avoid the pre-Christmas crowds at the malls, grocery stores, etc. And you were traveling the "friendly skies"!!! I'm not a huge worrier, but my family all got very sick with different illnesses before Christmas, and some settled in their lungs, and so they were very concerned about me getting out. I keep seeing the commercial when they show people coughing, and the cough is a colored cloud....so you can see how far the cough travels away from the person! LOL.....Anyway, my lungs are affected, plus I'm in a flare, so I did avoid going out much. I also carried a mask, thinking, I would put it on in the grocery store......but I never did. I just made sure I did not rub my eyes with my hands that were touching everything. And I would cough into my elbow, and not my hand. So I know how you think you would wear one in public, but then decide....nah.... One issue I have is that a couple of years ago, a bronch showed I had MRSA in my lungs. So, I don't want to go through that again!! Best wishes, and hope you had a good Christmas and a Healthy New Year...Blessings

    Hi Lilly,

    I know how you feel, I would not go anywhere with a flare or after treatments that lowered my immune system. In the grocery store lol, someone in the same aisle as me sneezes or coughs ....I'm headed the other way. I was dinning out and the waitress was sniffing...I had to leave..no way she is handling my dinner lol. GPA has turned me into Howard Hughes, if you understand the reference...but not at that OCD level yet. Air travel is the worse...breathing the same cabin air...definitely bring a mask. I was on a 10 hour flight from Istanbul back to the States with my 8 month old son a few months ago and he kept pulling my mask off, but it worked. Cheers!

    thanks for the Howard Hughes reference it made me laugh hard. I feel like Howard when I go outside also but never thought of it.
    I had a RTX on Dec 1, so I have hidden from everyone. I also have put a mask in my pocket but never put it on ither. I now take the stairs to stay away from the people that wait to get in the elevator with me and cough and gag.
    stay strong

    I wear a scarf all year round that I pull up over my mouth and nose.
    A nice thick woolen scarf in winter doesn't get heads turning like masks do, and even men can wear them.
    Has worked a treat for me for the past 8 years, with only one cold in that time, which I got from my daughter
