I am diagnosed with lymphatic tb. I am taking att drugs and my liver enzymes (LFT done after 18 days) are rising as well as uric acid. I am also surprised that I have persistent cough, mostly dry. It specially gets elevated when i sit in an ac room. Kindly advise.
Hello and thank you for your question. Tuberculosis is an airborn bacterial infection. Once it enters the body it can move to other parts of the body from the lungs like the lymphatic system or even the spine. To help with the cough avoid air conditioning, use some nasal saline spray and make sure you stay well hydrated by drinking at least 2 liters of water daily and avoiding caffeine. Take a multivitamin and get plenty of rest. Take your anti-tuberculosis drugs as prescribed and make sure you are getting regular liver tests. I hope you are better soon, Dr. Robinson
