Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. These results indicate that the levels of MTB (myobacterium tuberculosis), or bacteria that cause tuberculosis infection in your body are in very low levels, and can not be determined whether from a low amount, there is a tendency for bacteria to be resistant to antibiotics or not.
These results cannot be seen only from this aspect. It should also be seen whether you have symptoms of tuberculosis infection or not, whether you have a history of taking tuberculosis or not, how to evaluate it, regularly or not, and many other components. So it is difficult or even impossible for us to provide an accurate assessment without checking you directly.
Our advice, you should consult these results with a pulmonary doctor, because the answer to your question will depend on the results of the examination. Thus, a treatment plan can also be determined for you, whether you need tuberculosis treatment for 6 months, 9 months, or if it is already running, whether it remains on schedule or must be extended.
Meanwhile, just maintain a healthy lifestyle, don't cough, sneeze and spit carelessly, make sure your room and living quarters have good sunlight and air circulation, and get enough rest. So, hopefully answering your question.
