Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)

A sputum AFB test is a laboratory test used to diagnose tuberculosis (TB) infection. The test is performed by collecting a sample of sputum (mucus expectorated from the lungs) and examining it for the presence of acid-fast bacilli (AFB), the bacteria that cause TB.

A sputum AFB test is used to diagnose a bacterial infection called tuberculosis (TB). TB is a serious infection that can damage the lungs and other parts of the body. The test is also used to find out if someone has been exposed to TB.

The test is usually performed when a person has symptoms of tuberculosis, such as a cough that lasts more than three weeks, weight loss, or night sweats. It can also be used to diagnose latent tuberculosis infection.

If the outcome is normal, there is no infection in the body, and the system is functioning normally and without any issues. However, if the results are abnormal, it indicates that the body has a bacterial infection that has to be treated right once.

There are a few things that can be done in order to lower your sputum AFB test level.

-  First, it is important to quit smoking if you are a smoker. This will help to dramatically reduce the amount of AFB in your system.

- In addition, avoid exposure to secondhand smoke as much as possible. If you have a chronic lung condition, it is important to follow your treatment plan and take all of your medications as prescribed by your doctor.

-  Additionally, staying hydrated by drinking plenty of fluids can help to thin out mucus and make it easier to expel from your lungs.

- Finally, practicing good hygiene habits like regularly washing your hands and avoiding people who are sick can help to prevent the spread of infection.
