I have tuberculosis in latent stadium. I contracted it 3 years ago. 3 years I'm in unhappy family of 2.000.000.000 people with TBC in latent stadium. Yeah, you read it right ... 1/3 of global population have TBC in latent stadium. 1/10 of us - TBC positive - develop to active stadium. Active stadium mean in many cases slow and painful death. Still I'm quite happy because my strain of this beast is probably not multidrug resistent. In this thread I'll refer about my treatment, experiences with health industry and my general TBC research.

I have to stop drinking alcohol for 3 months so now I'm going to pub for last whiskey ... and will continue with this thread in one hour.

There is a new drug (which I guess is in trials) which is apparently effective against TB in all it's forms; that is, as a preventative vaccine*, during initial and late stage infection, and against the dormant bronchial form.

I'll try to find the story, and post it here.

BBC News

*"Vaccine" may be misleading, as TB is a bacterium.

Thank you very much. Vaccination may be very confusing term. So I'll try to define it now:

Vaccination is training of immunity system against specific threat (obviously not against CIA induced terrorists). We can categorize health threats in 3 basic domains: bacterial, viral, fungal. I'll try to explain it in later posts, for now it must be sufficient to say that TBC is somewhere between bacterium and fungus.

Just a rant. Today I was in hospital for thorough X-ray screening. Large, dougnath shaped machine. Impressive. I asked guy who work with this highly sophisticated machinery on which frequency the machine is working. Answer was: there is no frequency, just wave length. This answer was deadly for my thought process. I was laying in the dougnath and calculating probable frequency/wavelength. It is simple: wavelength of electromagnetic radiation is speed of light divided by frequency. Basic math, basic physic. The man operating the machine have less knowledge about the machine then I have! His title is "radiology specialist". I like to get some knowledge if I have chance ... in fact I was pretty happy that I'll see such interesting machine but I know more about the machine then the operator! I planned to chat with him about different types of ionizing radiation but he did not know basics of physics!!!!!! May be this experience will lead me to God ... health "professionals" are day by day less credible for me.

Back to reality. I'll probably eat Nidrazid (commercial name) for 3 months. It is liver killer. The substance is known as Isoniazid. It is not patented, so at least I'll not be guinea pig for pharma industry. Here starts my questions: the physician prescribed me with maximal allowed dose (300mg/day). I'm tiny man ... this is horse dose against my 75Kg of weight! On other side it is probably better to eradicate TBC by overhelming chemical skirmish, then to just tickle the bacteria into more resistent form. Any ideas?

Just a rant #2 - never ever disclose your small lung TBC community trouble to your neighbour. Reason: excommunication. Now I'm dirty man ...

It sounds like you were having a cat scan of your lungs. Does this sound accurate to you?
I am one of those specialists you speak of. You most likely received a 'low dose' scan. It is what we do to scan your lungs. You receive a small dose of radiation, just enough for the images to be diagnostic. It is a good test to make sure your lungs are clear. I wish you luck in your treatment and hope that other's post helps you in deciding which drug works best.

I did not know there were that many people with TBC. I hope you can keep your mind on as best a positive level as you can to further strenthen your ability to cope with the pains. Some feel meditation is a form of evol but I feel it helps search deep insid 1z self and can have some healing potentials the more you can allow it to influence your body when in peacful state of consciousness. I see you gotta take that last drink but when doing so consider each time you do how much healthier you will be without it or any other negative ingredients existing out here to smoke or ingest. A healthy diet and avoidence of non positive intake I hope will help. Thanks for sharing the data on your illness as again i didnt know it was spread so much.

Be Well

You know what's even worse ? There isn't enough money to aide all patients.

No more money for new TB cases.
