Influence Of Examination Results With A History Of TB Gland Treatment?
Hello, I want to ask, if in 2016 I had a TB gland and had taken 9 months to complete treatment, would it cause a reaction if in 2019 I had a PPD skin test? and beg for tips before doing a full medical check-up 🙂 thank you very much in advance.
Hello Tri, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
The interpretation of positive results on PPD skin tests can be influenced by many things, for example the presence or absence of a history of BCG vaccination when you were a child and when the BCG vaccination was carried out, the medications you routinely take, the presence or absence of other illnesses you are currently suffering from (for example the presence or absence HIV disease), your previous job (for example, are you a health worker, laboratory worker, or work in a place with high tuberculosis exposure), and many other factors that influence. Tuberculosis infections that have been treated more than 2 years ago are unlikely to affect the results of the PPD skin test.
Before doing a medical check-up a few things you can do:
Get enough sleep every day (at least 7-9 hours every day) Consume healthy food, avoid consuming high-salt and fatty foods, especially a few days before doing medical check-up. Do exercise regularly for at least 30 minutes a day, avoid doing strenuous exercise if you previously did never exercise a few days before doing a medical check-up Avoid consumption of coffee and other caffeinated drinks at least a day before doing a medical check-up Drink enough water (at least 2-3 liters a day) Pay close attention to the drugs you consume, make sure you consume medicines according to your doctor's instructions if there are medicines that you consume regularly Follow the instructions given before a medical check-up, for example if you have to fast before doing the examination, then fasting according to the provisions given Do not lie about your medical history, if indeed you have an illness certain, clearly describe your disease and the treatment you are taking
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
