Because so far he has never smoked, coughed, asthma and showed symptoms of TB. Are there other factors that cause TB?

1 Answer:

Dear Kartika,

TB stands for tuberculosis which has long been known by the layman as TB disease. This disease is caused by infection with the bacteria Mycobacterium tuberculose and mostly attacks the pulmonary system. These bacteria are unique and strong enough that they require at least 6 months of therapy for healing. Regarding transmission, TB is usually transmitted by people who suffer from TB through droplets of fluid from their airways. However, a strong immune system can generally prevent these infections. The problem is that in diabetics, the immune system is down so that if the patient lives in Indonesia, which is endemic to TB disease, there is a big possibility for him to be infected. What needs attention is that in diabetic patients, TB disease is usually more difficult in the healing stage. Therefore, we recommend that you pay close attention to the stages of treatment and run them well, because TB complications can be higher in diabetics. Don't forget to routinely give it to the doctor who treats it. Here we attach an article about tuberculosis. May be useful.
