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.
If you're looking for an easy and hassle free way to test for Tuberculosis, read on about how there is now a TB Blood Test.
As most of us are familiar with, normally there is a skin test involved for the TB testing process. However, many times these are inaccurate, which is why many results can come in the form of false positives or negatives. This puts everyone on edge with unnecessary stress when it comes to TB testing! Thankfully, there is now a better (and more accurate) way.
What is the New TB Blood Test?
If you truly want the most accurate result, the new TB Blood Test should be chosen. We all need to share with friends, family, coworkers, and others, about this new TB Blood Test option so that an informed choice can be made. We're all charged with the decisions about our own health care and choices, so it's of utmost importance that we understand this new method of testing is available. This is especially important because we all know accuracy is important when it comes to testing for TB.
What's different about how the TB Blood Test works, is that your results won't be skewed because of human error or interpretation. It's also not a subjective test. There are only 2 results available - positive or negative! Eliminating the 72 hour follow up rule, means you can have peace of mind about your accurate TB Blood Test result, without having to worry about making time to go back to get the results read. I remember a few months ago when my husband had to have a TB test administered for his job, what a complete pain it was for him to have to take time during our weekend to go back to have his TB test results interpreted by the lab tech. I know that he would have appreciated having a TB Blood Test available to him, and more of his weekend back!
How The New TB Blood Test Works
The new TB Blood test offers accurate results for TBinfection – and no cross reaction with previous TB vaccinations. It only requires a mere 3ml draw of fresh blood – irrespective/regardless of patient age/immune status. Another great benefit is the the convenience of just 1 visit for testing.
So when it comes down to your family's health, the benefits of the new TB Blood Test are just far too great to ignore. I hope you'll remember to ask for this option for your future TB tests.
