Genital Tuberculosis. Low immunity, stamina, frequent urination, cholesterol. Done PCR, DNA. Taking AKT4. No improvement. Treatment?

Hello Sir, My age is 29 weight 52 height 5 3 ..I m detected with Genital Tuberculosis through PCR test 2 months back and in a blood latent profile the range ( intensity) through DNA was found 11.6 where the normal range is .37. I am taking AKT 4 drug for last 2 months. Before starting this drug my weight reduced to 48kgs from 56kgs. But even after 2 monhs of taking this drug still there is no improvement in my health. I have very low immune and body stamina. Beside that i m also having very high Blood Cholesterol Level at 256 mg/DL.and also have a very high urine frequency in every 20-30 minutes due to which i can t sleep in night also and can t lead a normal life. I found this ranges for body cholesterol optimal less than 100 mg/dL ( 2.59 mmol/L) near optimal 100 - 129 mg/dL (2.59 - 3.34 mmol/L) borderline high 130 - 159 mg/dL (3.34 - 4.12 mmol/L) high 160 - 189 mg/dL (4.12 - 4.90 mmol/L) very high 190 mg/dL and above ( 4.90 mmol/L) I recently met a cardiologists and he s expecting some connection between AKT 4 drug and High Blood Cholesterol level. Things are very complicated to me and unmanageable to an extent.Please suggest me how should i proceed with my treatment to cure my disease and how should i manage my diet . Pls Suggest!! Thanks and Regards, Shivina Ahuja email: shan347@gmailcom
