    PTB is common in the Philippines. For those who have PTB, take your medications religiously for 6 months and avoid crowded places to decrease the risk of infecting others because PTB can be transmitted through sneezing, coughing etc.

      We're same… I also don't have any vices… I went in medical center for chest-pa, the result of my x-ray found that I have PTB… Radiologist told me about my case, that is a minimal… not seriously condition.. I went to Pulmonology for check-up.. The doctor's gave me a medicine for it. He explained to me of how this PTB can get… by person who already had a TB through coughing or sneezing.

    • liz says:

      Eat healthy foods.. such as vegetables,fish, fruits.. you also need enough rest and sleep and vitamins to boost your immune system.. TB is caused by a bacilli called mycobacterium tuberculosis that can be easily spread in the air from a person infected when they talk and sneeze. people with weak immune system are more prone to this illness..
