Respected sir/madam,
Regards from myself Dr Chandan Narwani. From Primary PTB , I mean it must be Primary Pulmonary Tuberculosis. In diet, your daughter must be having protein and callorie rich diet. Milk is protein rich diet, and there is no need to limit milk intake. Other foods that are good for her are eggs, meat, legumes, cereals , pulses,soyabeans, nuts etc. Out of all foods, eggs have highest levels of proteins of very good quality. Do not worry , your child will be well soon. Thank you
