Tuberculosis and non-diabetic hyperglycemia: a challenge to public health management

, : Tuberculosis and non-diabetic hyperglycemia: a challenge to public health management. Medical Hypotheses 81(6): 1170-1171

Diabetes and tuberculosis comorbidity is an emerging challenge for public health management. But the diagnostic criteria for diabetes is based on microvascular complications of diabetes and does not reflect the level of hyperglycemia which affects infectivity of Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Therefore the study protocols focussing on these comorbidities need to be reviewed.
