I want to ask? In the early morning I was tested positive for lung disease with category one (1) r n What does that category one mean?

1 Answer:

Good evening, thanks for the question


What is meant by category 1 TB is if the following conditions are found:


- Pulmonary TB with phlegm positive


- TB with negative phlegm and positive radiology results


- Extrapulmonary TB


Category 1 TB treatment includes 2 months of intensive phase by taking 4 types of drugs (rifampicin, isoniazid, pyrazinamide, etambutol) every day, and 4 months of continued phase by taking 2 types of drugs (rifampicin, isoniazid) 3 times a week.


While included in category 2 if on condition:


- The patient relapsed


- Patients have failed treatment with previous category 1 drug mixes


- Patients who are treated again after dropping out of treatment of their own volition


Category 2 TB treatment includes 2 months of intensive phase by taking 4 types of drugs (rifampicin, isoniazid, pyrazinamide, etambutol) every day plus streptomycin injections, followed by 1 month consuming 4 types of drugs (rifampicin, isoniazid, pyrazinamide, etambutol) every day, and streptomycin injections, followed by 1 month consuming 4 types of drugs (rifampicin, isoniazid, pyrazinamide, etambutol) every day, followed by taking 3 types of drugs (rifampicin, isoniazid, etambutol) 3 times a week.


TB drugs should be taken regularly every day and better at the same time. Consult a doctor immediately if you experience conditions such as severe nausea, vomiting, yellowish skin, hearing loss, vision problems, or rashes on the skin while you are still taking TB drugs.


so, hopefully can help. Wassalam
