Comment from: LIONEL77, 45-54 Male (Patient) Published: April 10

I had tuberculosis (TB) in 2002 and I got treatment for 9 months. After a long time, doctor told me that I was infected again due to over smoking and asked me to start treatment. At present he is giving me AKT-4 for 2 months. Already he asked me to take liver function test only and the report is ok.
