Tuberculosis (TB) is a disease that is spread from person to person through the air.  The lungs are the most common site for TB disease but it can also occur in the spine, kidneys, blood, and brain.  The germs are spread when a person who has TB of the lungs coughs, sneezes, laughs, or sings.  General symptoms may include weight loss, fever, night sweats, couch, chest pain, or coughing up blood.

Screening for Tuberculosis is available through a simple blood draw.  Medication for treatment of Tuberculosis can be provided free from the North Dakota Department of Health.
