Thanks for using First of all i would like to know how was the TB confirmed. Was a biopsy done. In some one who is 67 years old other caused are osteoporosis. If some one is getting nocturnal back pain we have to rule out metastasis also. Regarding the diet. as most medicines cause gastritis avoid spicy foods. Take a high protein diet. Add a vitamin called B long to the medicines to reduce the side effects of the ATT medicnes. Most important is to take a complete course of treatment for TB if confirmed. Bye
