Be careful: Totally drug-resistant TB emerges in India
« on: January 15, 2012, 12:13:56 PM »
Most of the time it is known as the disease of Poor...................

Physicians in India have identified a form of incurable tuberculosis there, raising further concerns over increasing drug resistance to the disease.

The discovery makes India the third country in which a completely drug-resistant form of the disease has emerged, following cases documented in Italy in 20072 and Iran in 2009.

So be careful and take proper treatment for any kind of coughing and be sure it is not TB.

The main reasons of this condition are:

1. Inadequate care:

2. Drug dearth:

Actually without Concern of Doctor, do not take any kinds of medicine even Paracetamol also. All medicine have some side effects otherwise it does not work for cure. Please remember  ......
