Disclosure: 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.
Being a mom of two amazing little girls, I try my best to do everything possible to keep them happy and healthy. I’m a busy mom of two by myself all week because my husband (their dad) works out of state during the week. No matter how busy I am I always strive to keep my children as happy and healthy as possible. Keeping them healthy involves regular check ups of course keeping them up to date on all shots and an occasional blood test. Although my kids hate getting blood work or shots, it is what is best for their health. So the quicker the better.
Thankfully there is a a new TB Blood Test that is so much easier, and more accurate than the skin test doctor’s have been giving patients for the last 110 years! The blood test can help diagnose tuberculosis (TB) infection and is a major scientific advance over the 110-year-old skin test, giving greater accuracy and a more reliable result. The TB blood test 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. Right now the most common type of TB test is the skin test which requires a second visit to the doctor’s office and can result in false positive. While I have never had a false positive on a TB skin test, it does happen and when it does you are often sent to have a chest x-ray to make sure you don’t really have tuberculosis.
How is the TB Blood Test Different?
The TB Blood Test is the most accurate test for a TB infection. It doesn’t have false positive reactions to previous TB vaccination!
Convenience for you the parent, and your child – no second visit to the doctor before a diagnosis (AWESOME)
The blood draw only requires 3ml of blood – regardless of the patients age or immune status.

If you are infected with TB, a raised lump will develop at the site where the tuberculin was injected. However, a previous TB vaccination is likely to cause a false-positive result and individuals may also experience severe itching at the puncture site. The TB blood test allows you to get accurate results in just one visit leading to meaningful benefits – more ease, more time, more certainty. Now doesn’t the TB Blood Test sound much faster and easier? Which TB test would you prefer?
