Appropriate Treatment For Patients With Lung Spots?
Hello, I want to ask how is the treatment to get rid of the spots on the lungs because when there are x-ray spots that I think are less visible, the doctor said that they are a sign of lung spots, how do you recommend eating and exercise patterns so that my lung spots can disappear? Thank you
Hello, Norma Septiyanii, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
If what your doctor means by pulmonary spots is tuberculosis (TB), then tuberculosis treatment can not only change in diet and lifestyle, but also have to take antibiotic drugs to kill tuberculosis germs. Tuberculosis is a disease caused by infection with the bacterium Mycobacterium tuberculosis, which can attack the organs of the lungs and outside the lungs. The disease is quite infectious (easily transmitted) through droplets or bodily fluids (coughing, sneezing) inhaled. If infected with tuberculosis bacteria in the lung organs, symptoms that appear are coughing for more than 3 weeks, night sweats, no appetite, until weight loss. Consumption of antibiotics for tuberculosis also also takes a long time, can be 6 months or more, depending on the patient's condition and the type of infection. The consumption of anti-tuberculosis drugs must also be done regularly and routinely so that optimal treatment and germs can actually die and be expelled from the body. If treatment is not optimal, what can happen is that the germs become resistant to the drug, complications can occur such as lung damage, the spread of infection to other organs, and transmission to people around.
To determine whether someone is exposed to lung spots / tuberculosis, it is necessary to dig up a history of the disease, direct physical examination, and supporting examinations such as sputum test, x-ray photograph, mantoux test, or blood test. So, you should ask the doctor who checks you directly about the disease you are suffering and the treatment plan.
In addition to anti-tuberculosis drugs (OAT), adequate nutrition must also be considered to support healing. There are no restrictions on eating in tuberculosis sufferers, so consume nutritious and regular food to help boost the immune system. In addition, make sure the residence has sufficient air and sunlight circulation to prevent TB germs from developing. Avoid cigarette smoke and smoke from motor vehicles to prevent worsening symptoms. Wear a mask, cover your mouth and nose when sneezing / coughing / laughing, and diligently wash your hands with soap to prevent transmission.
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
