Hi, my girlfriend has been diagnosed with TB, and I am so scared now. What kind of disease TB actually is?

Hi, tuberculosis is caused by bacteria called Mycobacterium tuberculosis, but even an infected person doesn’t have to develop the disease until it’s immunity is not damaged. People who are not sick have latent TB infection. The bacteria usually attack the lungs, but also the kidney, spine, and brain. TB is spread through the air from one person to another, by coughs or sneezes. When people breathe in these bacteria they become infected. Treatment of TB infection lasts for 6 to 9 months, depending on scheme that doctor decides to apply.

TB nowdays is very common....No one should be afraid of it.....It's totally cureable....

THe treatment lasts from 4 months to 12 months as per the degree of TB and age of patient.

Apart from taking REGULAR medicines without fail and proper rest. The patient must be given extremely good and rich diet containing LOTS of iron, protein,calcium, minerals, fats, fruits, etc.

TB medicines sometimes cause burning sensation in the stomach: To avoid this before taking medicine one should take milk with some protein suppliment drinks( We have PROTINEX in INDIA).

Regular medicine + rest + RICH DIET = CURE of TB.


best of luck to all
