As the festive season brings people together, Anil Baghi Hospital, the NABH-accredited super specialty hospital and No. 1 ranked hospital in Punjab by the National Health Authority and State Health Agencies Punjab, urges everyone to be mindful of Tuberculosis (TB) symptoms, especially during this time of increased social gatherings.
TB, a highly contagious bacterial infection, primarily affects the lungs but can spread to other parts of the body. While easily treatable if diagnosed early, TB can lead to severe complications if left unchecked.
Anil Baghi Hospital’s esteemed Pulmonologist, Dr. Kumar (Chest & T.B. Specialist), highlights the key symptoms to watch out for:
- A persistent cough lasting longer than 2 weeks
- Chest pain or discomfort
- Coughing up blood
- Persistent fatigue and tiredness
- Loss of appetite
- Unexplained weight loss
Dr. Kumar emphasizes the importance of seeking immediate medical attention if you experience any of these symptoms. Early diagnosis and treatment are crucial for preventing the spread of TB and ensuring a successful recovery.
Anil Baghi Hospital offers comprehensive TB diagnostic and treatment services, led by Dr. Kumar. The hospital’s OPD timings for Pulmonology consultations are from 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM, making it convenient for patients to seek expert care. Additionally, Anil Baghi Hospital provides dedicated support through its toll-free number (1800 309 2730) and helpline (75298-75298).
As holiday celebrations bring people together, Anil Baghi Hospital encourages everyone to be aware of TB symptoms and prioritize personal health. By promoting early diagnosis and treatment, we can collectively work towards a TB-free future.
