Lungs are the organs that are most affected by the infectious
disease of Tuberculosis. The causative agent of this disease is
Mycobacterium Tuberculi. A person can be affected by this
disease in case he is in contact with a person suffering from this
disease. The ones with a good immune power tend to be carriers
for the bacteria and transfer it to others who have a weaker
immune system. They themselves are not affected by the disease
but are carriers of it. There are various other risk factors that this
disease brings along with it. Some of the ones are the rise in the
blood sugar level and some types of cancers and even HIV. Some
of the most prominent symptoms of this disease are chronic
cough with blood stained sputum, fever, weight loss and profuse

It is an advice from TB super specialists to complete the course of

the tuberculosis medication or else this disease may prove to be
fatal. The patient usually starts to feel better within two three
weeks of the treatment but it is advisable to continue and
