Each year we recognize World Tuberculosis (TB) Day and this year it is on March 24th. According to the CDC there are too many people in our country and around the world that still suffer from TB. In 2014, 9.6 million people around the world became sick with TB disease. The U.S. had a total of 9,421 TB cases. Anyone can get TB and often times it is misdiagnosed by health care professionals. This year’s theme is “Unite to End TB.” TB vaccines are highly suggested and available to all children when they are born. TB is a disease caused by germs that are spread from person to person through the air. TB usually affects the lunch but can also affect other parts of the body. If left untreated, it can be deadly.
Some of the symptoms of TB include feeling sick, weak, suffer weight loss, fever and night sweats. Other symptoms can include coughing, chest pain and coughing up blood.
TB germs are spread when the person infected with the disease of the lungs or throat coughs, sneezes, speaks and even sings. These germs can stay in the air for SEVERAL hours, depending on the environment.
The important thing to remember is that once diagnosed, TB can be treated with medication.
