What You Need to Know About TB Testing!

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for the TB Blood Test. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

As busy moms, we constantly try daily to ensure the well-being of our family.

But, honestly, planning ahead for every situation is non-existent, even if you are a supermom.

TB testing

With our busy schedules, especially during routine, back-to -school checkups, we need the most reliable and effective care available. 

Not today, but yesterday. Right?

I tend to be a little on edge when my children are not healthy and well.

You too?

One way we can assure our children are protected from tuberculosis is the TB blood test that is the only available method of testing for TB with completely objective results. Other tests, such as the skin test, are subjective and open to visual interpretation.

The blood test can help diagnose a tuberculosis (TB) infection and has taken a major scientific positive turn over the past 110-year-old skin tests.

This was exciting news to me because I used to work in long-term care and we were required to take a TB skin test. I remember a few employees ended up with false positive results. Typically, if you are infected with TB, a raised lump will develop at the site where the tuberculin was injected when using the TB skin test method. The skin test requires the patient a second visit to the doctor’s office for test result readings.

A bit inconvenient, huh?

Did you know?

The TB blood test is the only available method of testing for TB with completely objective results. The skin tests are subjective and open to visual interpretation readings.

When you take the TB Blood Test

  • There will be no cross reaction with a previous TB vaccination.
  • You will only be required 1 office visit.
  • You will need to provide a very small amount of blood for the testing.

TB Blood Test makes TB testing reliable and stress free.  By putting our mommy’s heart at ease when it comes to our family’s health, we can enjoy our life to the fullest with our blessings.

After all, life is short.

When was the last time you had a TB test?
