How Long Is The Life Expectancy Of TB Sufferers?
After how many years the disease suffered by active pulmonary TB will die?
Thank you for the question.
TB infection (tuberculosis) in the lungs can cause symptoms that are quite disturbing, such as productive cough that does not heal, bleeding phlegm, prolonged fever, excessive sweating, weakness, fatigue, weight loss, lack of appetite, lack of appetite, swollen lymph nodes, and so. Not only that, this disease is also very easily transmitted, either through direct contact or indirectly to those around him. In Indonesia alone, the TB incidence rate is still among the highest in the world.
If treated properly, pulmonary TB is actually not very deadly. Even according to some literature, most disciplined sufferers undergoing anti-TB treatment will greatly improve their symptoms, and the potential for transmission will decrease dramatically. Although indeed, in patients with weak immune systems (for example due to HIV-AIDS, malnutrition, long-term steroid consumption, or cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy), patients who do not undergo treatment properly, or patients who are resistant to treatment, this disease can cause a variety of potentially lethal complications, including pleural effusion, or spread of infection to the blood and other organ systems. As for how long the patient will be able to die from these conditions, the answer certainly depends on the severity of the disease, such as what treatment is undertaken, and how the patient's body responds to the treatment.
The good, you consult this directly with your doctor or lung specialist who treats the sufferer, yes ...
I hope this helps.
