Undernutrition is a common co-morbidity in patients with active TB, which has serious implications for the outcomes of treatment. It is a risk factor for early death during treatment, drug-induced hepatotoxicity, poor performance status at end of treatment and relapse of disease after successful treatment. Nutritional assessment, counselling and support are now considered as integral part of therapy of patients with TB.

This app:

• estimates the weight gain required to reach an acceptable or optimal body mass index,
• provides counselling tips on diet and an approximate daily calorie intake required for nutritional recovery.
