May 15, 2014 (Newswire.com) - (http://www.jellypharmacy.com/) : Tuberculosis(TB) is a bacterial infection that can spread through the lymph nodes and bloodstream and then to any parts of the body. It's difficult to know the symptoms of this disease because TB can stay in body in inactive form. If immune systems weakens then this TB bacteria becomes active. If this disease left untreated then it can cause death of the tissue in the organs they infect.
A patient affected by this disease may have symptoms like fever, cough, shortness of breath, may feel tiredness, fatigue, weight loss, night sweats, and chest pain. It is important for the people to inform the doctor as soon as he is affected by such symptoms.
It is caused by bacteria that spread from one person to another when droplets are released in to the air by TB infected patient through sneezing, or coughing and inhaled by other person. Patient with HIV positive have more chance to get affected by TB disease as immune system of that person doesn't work well and hence the bacteria becomes active as the immune system of body is not able to fight against the bacteria or virus.
A patient affected by TB disease must take antibiotics for at least six to nine months. Most common medications used to treat tuberculosis are pyrazinamide, ethambutal, isoniazid, and rifampin. Protection of TB disease from spreading it to family and friends can be done by staying at home, ventilating the home, covering your mouth, and wearing the mask. For infants, Bacille Calmette Guerin(BCG) vaccine is vaccinated. The tests that can be taken to find the tuberculosis disease in patient- are chest X-ray, blood test, and sputum test.
