Tuberculosis is a disease caused by infection with Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Tuberculosis disease generally enters the human body through the respiratory tract and attacks the lungs, although tuberculosis infection can occur in various organs in the human body such as the digestive tract, lymph nodes, spinal cord or brain. In tuberculosis infection the lungs can cause classic symptoms of cough that persists for a long time, accompanied by weight loss, night sweats, can be accompanied by cough with phlegm or bloody cough.
In establishing the diagnosis of tuberculosis, it is necessary to take an anamnesis regarding the complaints you are experiencing, a physical examination of your condition, as well as supporting examinations such as blood tests, sputum examinations and imaging examinations in the form of chest X-rays. After the diagnosis is erect, treatment will be given with several types of drugs that aim to overcome bacterial infections. Some reactions to treatment can occur such as allergic reactions to some tuberculosis treatments.
It is advisable to consult a pulmonary physician regarding the treatment of gland tuberculosis for further examination and management. It can be considered changing the type of tuberculosis treatment given if there is an allergic reaction to certain types of treatment. It is also necessary to follow up regularly to see the treatment response. If the complaint is burdensome or the number of lumps increases, consult a doctor immediately.
Avoid stopping or changing your own treatment regimen without doctor's instructions, taking medication regularly, following up regularly according to schedule, maintaining good and regular eating patterns and activities, getting enough rest.
