Hi Shary, thanks for the question.

It is necessary to know beforehand, tuberculosis is an infectious disease caused by the bacterium Mycobacterium tuberculosis. These bacteria generally attack the lungs, but it is not uncommon to find other organs such as the lymph nodes (extrapulmonary tuberculosis). A doctor will make a diagnosis of glandular tuberculosis based on the examination he does. If proven, then treatment with anti-tuberculosis drugs (OAT) can be started.

Tuberculosis treatment takes a long time and is continuous (at least 6 months) and it is necessary to have regular check-ups with the doctor. If treatment is inadequate or stopped, the possibility of tuberculosis bacteria will become resistant (resistance) is greater and make the infection more difficult to treat. Clinically, the lump will get better with treatment

Apart from treatment with anti-tuberculosis drugs (OAT), no other method has been proven effective for treating glandular tuberculosis. Therefore, if you suffer from this disease, don't hesitate to follow the therapy recommendations from your doctor and return to the scheduled control. Some tips that can help are:

Take medication regularly (try every day at the same time to increase the effectiveness of the drug)

Eat nutritious foods, try to eat foods that are high in protein, such as egg whites, tofu, tempeh, and milk

Do not smoke

Drink enough water, 6-8 glasses per day

Articles on tuberculosis and glandular tuberculosis can be read in addition.

That's all, hope it helps.
