TB (Tuberculosis, TB) is an infection caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis. These infections often affect the lungs, although not infrequently also about other organ systems. TB infection in the lungs can cause sufferers to experience productive cough that does not go away, accompanied by a variety of other complaints, for example chest pain, weight loss, fever and excessive sweating that does not heal, swelling in the lymph nodes, coughing up blood, decreased appetite, and so. With proper treatment, especially through regular administration of OAT (anti-TB drugs), TB can generally be cured. As for several factors that often inhibit TB healing are usually associated with irregular treatment, not optimal immune system, drug resistance, malnutrition, to reinfection (usually due to close contact with other TB sufferers, living in a densely populated environment, etc.) . After recovering, it is not impossible that TB will recur (relapse). Does your mother have symptoms like TB again? If so, we recommend that you consult your mother directly to a doctor or a specialist in internal medicine so that it is handled properly. TB diagnosis can usually be confirmed by doctors through interviews, physical examinations, and further tests, such as sputum, x-ray, laboratory tests, and so on.
Cataracts occur when the lens of the eye experiences turbidity, which causes the sufferer to experience foggy (blurred) vision. This condition is often experienced by the elderly, especially those suffering from diabetes like your mother, especially with uncontrolled blood sugar levels. Besides diabetes, various other factors can also increase a person's risk of developing cataracts, including the elderly, excessive sun exposure, smoking, obesity, hypertension, history of eye injury (including due to surgery or inflammation), long-term consumption of steroid drugs (such as drugs which is often consumed by people with asthma), and also excessive alcohol consumption. Genetic factors (heredity) also contributed to the emergence of this disease. However, its role is not as significant as other factors as mentioned earlier.
Cataract sufferers, if not treated properly, can certainly greatly decrease their vision function, even to the point of not being able to see at all (blind). This disease cannot heal by itself. Therefore, you need to see your mother directly to an ophthalmologist so that the best treatment is done. In conditions where cataracts have significantly affected vision, often the doctor will recommend surgery. As long as it is performed by competent medical personnel, cataract surgery is often not a dangerous operation. In the meantime, so that the cataract does not worsen, you can help your mother control her blood sugar levels regularly. Avoid it doing dangerous activities alone, for example traveling at night, driving, and so on. Also remind him to stay away from cigarettes and alcohol, and multiply to eat fruits and vegetables.
Hope this helps ...
