@sagnika It is believed that obesity, largely via visceral adiposity, has a negative impact on IBD via increased production of adipokines, chemokines, and cytokines, such as tumor necrosis factor (TNF) alpha and interleukin-6, thus affecting treatment response as well as increasing the risk for complications and infections. However, studies of the association between obesity and poorer treatment response, both large and small, have yielded conflicting results, potentially owing to methodological limitations.

RE: Asthma with increased allergies
@Bodhi It appears to be allergy-induced asthma. The patient should be referred to his primary care physician to discuss other options. Ideally, he should be prescribed a short-acting beta agonist to help relieve his shortness of breath until his allergy symptoms are controlled. If he appears to have daily shortness of breath after his allergies are controlled, additional drug therapy may be necessary to control his asthma. Additionally, he should be advised to take his loratadine daily even when he feels better, to prevent his allergies from acting up.
RE: Tuberculosis with persistent cough and generalized weakness
@Pinaki Tuberculosis (TB) is caused by a type of bacterium called Mycobacterium tuberculosis. It's spread when a person with active TB disease in their lungs coughs or sneezes and someone else inhales the expelled droplets, which contain TB bacteria. Although TB is spread in a similar way to a cold or flu, it is not as contagious. You would have to spend prolonged periods (several hours) in close contact with an infected person to catch the infection yourself. For example, TB infections usually spread between family members who live in the same house. It would be highly unlikely for you to become infected by sitting next to an infected person on, for instance, a bus or train. Not everyone with TB is infectious. Children with TB or people with a TB infection that occurs outside the lungs (extrapulmonary TB) do not spread the infection.
