The diagnosis of tb cannot be made by a chest x-ray alone. It can also not be excluded by a chest x-ray. Instead, the diagnosis of active tuberculosis means finding the bacterium in a sample of bodily fluid from the patient. You may need to discuss it further over a call for a detailed consultation. Thanks.

There's no gout as in such for you, just continue your medications properly, as it's important for you to recover completely from tb, and you will have to start with multivitamin suppliments particularly for vitamin d 3 and calcium, followed by your mdt course. Along with it go for calcium rich diet as well.

I have cin2, is it save to use clenbuterol (steroids), will it worses my cin2 or not?
Cin2 is not cancer, but may become cancer and spread to nearby normal tissue if not treated. Treatment for cin2 may include cryotherapy, laser therapy, loop electrosurgical procedure, or cone biopsy to remove or destroy the abnormal tissue. Let's connect over a call to discuss your issue in detail for better and effective consultation. Thanks.

My brother has completed 2 months already with tb medication and now doctor has prescribed him with r cinex 600/300 mg and combutol 1200 mg for next 4 months. I think combutol should have been stopped. Do you think it is right prescription for him?

In initial stage, the symptoms are nonspecific such as fever and an occasional dry cough. However, as the disease progresses slowly, symptoms such as weight loss, loss of energy, fever, a productive cough, poor appetite and night sweats may develop. You may need an examination to determine your actual status. Let's connect over a call for further detailed consultation. Thanks.
