The new epidemic that could captivate the country is Tuberculosis. Although it has already won the battles in the rural areas, the urban life is not away from this infectious disease. In the olden days people suffering from these were considered not less than life seizing diseases like Cancer or Aids but with science and technology playing their parts fantastically, we have medication and treatments that could get rid of this disease but again this does not mean that it has lost its dragon like fire. It has still being seizing lives of those who are not aware or they are neglecting it, assuming it’s just a routine problem.

Its important for one to know what this life seizing disease really is….Tuberculosis (TB) is an infectious disease caused by bacteria whose scientific name is Mycobacterium. TB most commonly affects the lungs but also can involve almost any organ of the body. Previously when medication was provided for the same it use to plainly fade away but now hospitals hold proper treatments and medications to get rid of it through antibiotics. But this is still an infectious disease.

Some of the symptoms of Tuberculoses are as follows-

–       The immunity levels of the body drops

–       Regular cough and cold problems

–       Lung infection and chest pain

–       Sudden weight loss

–       Blood in the cough

–       Continuous coughing problem

–       Dry cough

–       Short of breath

–       Fever and viral fever

–       Weakness and body aches

–       Regular sweating

When you realize that 4-5 symptoms of these match with yours, a check- up is advisable. One should consult a doctor for the purpose of precaution, Its nothing to panic but precaution is anyday better than cure. Besides one could get infected with tuberculosis bacteria when he or she inhales minute particles of infected  from the air. The bacteria get into the air when someone who has a tuberculosis lung infection coughs, sneezes, shouts, or spits (which is common in some cultures). People who are nearby can then possibly breathe the bacteria into their lungs. You don’t get TB by just touching the clothes or shaking the hands of someone who is infected. Tuberculosis is spread (transmitted) primarily from person to person by breathing infected air during close contact. So if you are aware of someone who is already a victim of it, do not avoid him rather avoid going too close to him.
