Some forms of TB will not cause much symptoms, just weight loss, weakness in some cases. The weight loss is the first thing which improves after good treatment. Eat plenty of protein rich food like cereals, pulses, eggs, chicken, lean meat. Eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables. Drink plenty of water. After receiving the medication from your Doctor you will recover. Don't worry. Good treatment exists for TB. GOOD LUCK !!!!
