Should you get tested?

After watching the video, ask yourself if you should get tested. You may need to get tested for TB if you have:

  • travelled or lived in countries where TB is common
  • been around someone who had TB disease in their lungs that can pass from person to person
  • taken medicine that lowers your immune system
  • a health condition such as HIV, diabetes, kidney disease or cancer
  • TB symptoms:
    • coughing up mucus or blood
    • fevers, chills and night sweats
    • loss of appetite and unexplained weight loss
    • always feeling tired and fatigued
    • shortness of breath and chest pain

If you answered "Yes" to any of the points above, speak with your doctor, contact your local health unit or one of our TB Clinics.
