TB is globally a major health concern. WHO’s end TB strategy envisions a world TB free with zero deaths. TB is caused by a bacteria ( mycobacterium tuberculosis ) that most often affects lungs. TB is curable and preventable.
Cough with sputum and blood at times, chest pain, evening fever, night sweats, loss of appetite and weight.
TB usually spreads from person to person through air when the TB patient coughs, spits or sneezes as they propel the TB germs into the air. A person needs to inhale only a few of these germs to get infected.
People at risk:
HIV-AIDS patients, Diabetics, Smokers, Mal Nourished, Drug Abusers, Immune compromised patients and alcoholics
Last May World Health Assembly governments agreed on ambitious new 20 year ( 2016 to 2035 ) strategy to end the global TB Epidemic. Let’s all cooperate and help achieve the goal by early diagnosis and the available effective treatment.

Tuberculosis was a major killer disease in Europe and America in 1880 killing one in ten people suffering with TB. Now nearly 95% of TB patients are in ASIAN subcontinent because of high population, overcrowding, poor sanitation measures, poverty, pollution, poor compliance towards medical treatment. Any person suffering with COUGH, SPUTUM, CHEST PAIN, FEVER, WEIGHT LOSS, and LOSS OF APETITE must immediately seek medical advice to rule out TB. TB is a respiratory disease caused by TB bacteria and spread from one Patient to another by coughing. Doctor will confirm the disease by simple Sputum analysis and chest x ray. Person suffering with TB should cover his mouth and nose with a simple mask to prevent spreading to others. Patient is put on simple anti-TB medication which is given for 6-9 months. Strict adherence to medication is the key to success. One can avail free medication from government medical centre. As a rule prevention is better than cure, one must maintain healthy life styles like taking proper healthy food, avoiding smoking and drinking alcohol, avoiding stressful conditions, regular walking, exercises, yoga, meditation, good control of diabetes, hypertension and other medical diseases if any.
