Thanks for writing to health care magic.

Tuberculosis is associated with weight loss, fever, cough (in case of TB of lungs) etc.

Diagnosis of Tuberculosis can be done based on various investigations like sputum examination, Mantoux test, ESR etc.

recurrent fever can also occur in various other conditions like malaria.

Tuberculosis can be treated with anti tubercular drugs like Rifampicin, Isoniazid, Pyrazinamide, Ethambutal etc

Hope I answered your query.
Take care.
