Suggest do a blood test to check your haemoglobin level and to see if you have resistant TB.If all well then a high protien diet with regular intake of seasonal fruits will help you to gain weight.Along with this do take a good vitamin BComplex tablets.

Hi,thanks for query.Along with medication you need to take high protein diet to make up for lost weight.There is no need to take medicines again once the disease is cured.Take good diet rich in protein and vitamins.You can even ask your doctor for protein supplements for couple of months.bye.

Welcome to health care magic
Your expert must have advised you about long term MultiVitamin, Minerals and Good Nutritious diet.
In addition to this, i would like to suggest you to have good Liver Tonic / stimulant, because all anti-tuberculin drugs are highly toxic to liver. To avoid this and for better metabolism, liver tone-up will help you.
take care

you do not need to take medicines for T.B. again.
You should take diet rich in protein like pulses.milk, eggs, & soyabeens.
Also some multivitamins, & iron tonics like Syp. tonoferan 1 t.s.f twice daily should be taken.
