Tuberculosis (TB) is an infectious disease which mainly affects the lungs and spread to other parts of the body. TB is mainly triggered due to a bacterial infection caused by a bacterium called Mycobacterium TB. This particular condition is highly contagious and spread easily when infected persons cough and sneeze.
People with weak immune system and chronic diseases like Diabetes are more at risk of developing this condition. Few common causes of this condition include
- Severe Kidney disorders
- Certain Cancers
- Cancer treatments like Chemotherapy
- Medications used to treat Psoriasis, Rheumatoid Arthritis and Crohn’s Disease
People who do not take proper nutritious diet (or suffering with malnutrition) are at an increased risk of developing it. Travelling to or living in the areas with high TB rates like Africa, Asia, Russia and Eastern Europe also triggers the risk of this condition.

- Persistent and severe cough
- Unintentional weight loss
- Pain in the chest while breathing or coughing
- Coughing up blood

Types of TB
There are two types of TB, namely
- Latent TB– Latent TB is also referred as inactive TB, in this type people have germs in the body. The TB Bacteria in the body stay inactive as the immune system keeps them from spreading.
