Well what dose it mean WELL question is what do doctors see in our sputom.
Are they looking for bacteriea or swiriling mitochondria.
I guess the answer would be yes AS swiriling mitochondria in lung dieased sputom could indicate oxidive stress and free radicals ' bottom right' of picture.
Is what i belive to be free radicals oxidive stress and pesky swirling mitochondria.
Something i wish i never knew or looked up BUT its cause is hyperoxia abd think c oxidise activaty.
Quite grim but no secret as have been unwell very breathless and did have to start my emergancy antibiotics coz of silant infection OR could been airway blockage from lung debris coughthed up.
Would be intresting to find out of doctors or even blf what do they know about swirling mitochondria and lung disease.
