The US has the highest prevalence of tuberculosis in the world, and tuberculosis can cause serious, life-threatening infections.
If you or anyone you know have been infected with the disease, there’s a good chance you’ll have a positive test.
A person’s blood and/or urine sample can reveal many health risks.
The FDA says that all people over the age of 12 with tuberculosis should get tested, but there’s no specific age limit.
The FDA says tests can detect about 3.5 million new cases per year, and it’s not clear how many people test positive for tuberculosis every year.
