Hi. I understand your concerns. If he is having pulmonary or tb of lungs then the diagnosis is made by examining the sputum. If he has not taken tb treatemnt before then he will need 6 months of tb treatment. He also needs to have high intake of protein in the form of egg or Jon veg along with a multivitamin. Hope your questions were answered. Thanks
