Dear Lily
Patients suffering from TB need to eat a diet rich in fresh fruit and vegetables, unprocessed grains and cereals, meat, fish, eggs, milk and dairy products to boost their immune system. It is also a good idea for them to take vitamin and mineral supplements like Centrum and Salmon Oil capsules (for omega-3 which improves immunity). The patient also need to get lots of rest so that he/she can fight the infection.
Hoping that the patient will be feeling better soon.
