Thank you for posting your query.
Bone TB responds well to anti TB medications, however, the medicines should be continued for long, upto 18 months in most cases. In spine involvement, the nerves get pinched at times, which leads to pain in lower back and hips radiating to legs. This would respond to analgesics such as ibuprofen or diclofenac tablets. If the radiating pain is more, then pregabalin capsules would help.
Regarding food supplements, all are good. However, the focus should be more on protein XXXXXXX and calcium XXXXXXX foods. For ex- Vipro protein and vitamin powder chocolates.

I hope it helps. Please get back if you require any more information.

Best wishes,

Thank you for getting back.

Following food supplements may be useful for her:

1. Pyridoxine- sold in India as Benadon. It is vitamin B6 supplement, which is a must with anti-TB medications.
2. Nature's Bounty Calcium 600 with vitamin D3- for increasing strength of bones.
3. Vipro Protein & Vitamins Powder Chocolate Flavour- It does not increase the sugars much, as chocolate is for flavour only.

Best wishes,
Dr Sudhir Kumar MD DM
