at night doctor, I want to ask. I have a friend who was diagnosed with category 2 glandular tuberculosis and is still in the treatment phase. Does it affect his recovery if he ever gets 1 injection with a less dose. (The prescribed dose is 750 mg, during the treatment period, once received an injection the dose was 600 mg)

1 Answer:

Hello, good afternoon Diane.

Tuberculosis (TB) is an infectious disease that mostly attacks the lungs, although it can attack other organs of the body, such as glands, bones, larynx (throat canal), etc. Symptoms of TB include: a long cough that does not heal (in pulmonary TB), prolonged fever, weight loss, night sweats, weak body, and so on.

TB treatment depends on the type of TB disease suffered. Patients with pulmonary TB for the first time will be treated with category 1 TB treatment, for 6 months to 1 year, depending on the results of the treatment evaluation. For patients with TB for the first time outside the lungs (eg glandular TB), they are treated with category 1 TB for 9 months to 1 year, which also depends on treatment evaluation. For patients with pulmonary TB who have relapsed, failed treatment, or stopped treatment, they will be given category 2 TB treatment (i.e. in the presence of injection drugs), for 8 months or more, depending on the evaluation of treatment.

Regarding the inaccuracy of the dose, you don't need to worry too much, especially if the lack of dose is only one time. Whether or not a person with TB recovers will be evaluated gradually, usually during the first 2 months of treatment and at the end of treatment. If the results of the sputum examination or X-ray are no longer found to have bacteria or an improvement in the X-ray results, the patient is declared cured.

Hope it helps.

Regards, dr. Denisa
