Welcome to Healthcare Magic.
I have read your question fully and understand your concerns.
The weight gain you are currently having is due to your anti-tuberculosis
medication. These medicines increase your appetite leading to increased eating/snacking. Hence you would have put on weight. Once the medicine course finishes, you would lose a few kgs, but you would need to eat healthy and also exercise.
There is no co-relation between PCOD
and TB. PCOD is a condition of varying symptoms and occurs due to hormonal
imbalance. TB is a bacterial infection.
There is no permanent cure for PCOD. But PCOD symptoms can be adequately controlled. As symptoms are varied, it is important to focus on the symptoms that are bothering the woman and treat it. For e.g.: some women with PCOD have abnormal hair growth on upper lip
, chin etc. These women are offered hair removal
creams. Some women with PCOD do not get pregnant. Treatment here is then focussed on helping the woman to conceive. Some women have irregular periods
. Treatment then is focussed on regularising the women’s periods. Not all the women have all the symptoms of PCOD. PCOD is a very common hormonal disorder and majority of the women lead healthy successful lives.
I hope this answer has helped you.
