Hi this is a class discussion for a pathology course. I already submitted my reply. I just need to reply to 2 other people. So, we basically had to describe a condition and provide the treatment for that condition. Now I have to reply to 2 other classmates and find a resource that supports their treatment or another type of treatment.  I posted their replies below one is Tuberculosis and the other one is Celiac. By the way this is a pathology class for a dental hygiene program. Here is what my instruction wants us to do:

 Respond to at least 2 of your classmates by finding one resource that may support their treatment, or supports another type of treatment.  Provide a link to the article in your post.



Tuberculosis is caused by a bacteria called Mycobacterium tuberculosis. The transmission is inhalation of droplet nuclei. It spreads through the air when a person with tuberculosis of the lungs, or coughs, sneezes or talks.

– Latent Tuberculosis

People become infected the body’s able to fight the bacteria.

People with LTBI have no symptoms, don’t feel sick, cannot spread to others, and usually have a positive TST result. If it is not treated, it can develop to TB

one of the treatment for LTBI is to use prescribed regimens, and these regimens are “6 or 9 months of daily, or directly observed twice weekly, Isoniazid (INH); directly observed 12-dose once-weekly INH and Rifampin, or 4 months of daily Rifampin.

– Tuberculosis disease

active bacteria that multiply and cause clinically active disease.

IHN also can be used in TB treatment because INH inhibits the synthesis of mycolic acids which is an essential component of cell wall.

Celiac disease

Celiac Disease is an autoimmune disease that affects the gastrointestinal system of an individual by having an abnormal sensitivity to gluten found in wheat, rye, and barley. There can be two forms of Celiac disease. The typical form is diagnosed at any age having the extraoral characteristics of crypt hyperplasia, villous atrophy, malabsorption, dermatitis herpetiformis, diarrhea, weight loss, and weakness. While the atypical form is limited to abnormalities in the small intestine but has been associated extraintestinal conditions such as osteoporosis, peripheral neuropathy, type 1 diabetes, anemia and infertility.

Treatment for celiac disease is a strict life-long gluten free diet. It has been noted that the avoidance of total gluten is extremely difficult because of food contamination. The estimation for threshold of prolonged gluten ingestion in some individuals with celiac disease is lower than 50 mg/d. Some individuals are more sensitive than others and such statement should not be taken as a recommendation to test your threshold. It has been suggested that ½ a cup of oats is well tolerated for some individuals with celiac disease but controversial because of the cross contamination with other gluten foods, caution is recommended. The following grains and/or starches are naturally GF: amaranth, millet, nuts, arrowroot, potato, bean, buckwheat, rice, quinoa, sago, corn, flax, soy, tapioca, legumes, lentils, teff, wild rice, and mesquite.
