The number of answers this doctor has agreed with.
A 47-year-old member asked:
False negative Tuberculin skin test (TST). A number of host factors including viral infection, immunosuppression, poor nutrition, recent TB infection, and disseminated TB infection can decrease Tuberculn skin test reactivity. Blood test such as QuantiFeron TB Gold has a higher specificity when tests positive than that of TST.
A 56-year-old male asked:
Low hemoglobin. Hemoglobin value less than 13.5 gm/dl in your age is generally considered as anemia. Consult your primary care physician who will sort out the cause (s) and render proper management.
A 50-year-old member asked:
Synergistic effect: Administration of PZA (Pyrazinamide) for the first 2 months with Isonizid and Rifampin followed by 4 mo of Isoniazid and Rifampin allows 6-month treatment regimen for pulmonary and extrapulmonary TB (except meningitis). This shorter treatment regimen provides advantage of higher compliance and less drug resistance.
