From height and weight tables of the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company, 1983. The ideal weights given in these tables are for ages
25 to 59. The weights assume you are wearing shoes with 1-inch heels and indoor clothing weighing 3 pounds.

*Under Weight:
greater than equal to 10 percent or below ideal body weight using Metropolitan Life Table for Medium Frame Adult
*Low BMI:
BMI less than equal to 18.5
NUTRITIONAL FORMULAS
*Formula for Maintenance of Ideal Body Weight:
30 Calories per Kilogram
Example: 120 LBS divided by 2.2 equals 54KG
54 times 30 equals 1620 Calories per Day
*Formula for Weight Gain:
35 Calories per Kilogram
Example: 54 times 35 equals 1890 Calories
*Formula for weight gain for severely malnourished (more than 10 percent below ideal body weight):
40 calories per kilogram
Example: 54 times 40 equals 2160 with a maximum of 2400 Calories per Day
*Ideal Weight Gain:
One Pound Per Week

Definition of TB Relapse

Relapse refers to the circumstance in which a patient becomes and remains culturenegative
while receiving anti TB drugs, but, at some point after completion of
therapy, either becomes culture-positive again or experiences clinical or radiographic
deterioration consistent with active tuberculosis.† MMWR CDC Guideline: Treatment
of Tuberculosis, June 20, 2003. Page 66.

Medical Consultation

Relapse of TB disease frequently requires consultation with a TB expert to appropriately
treat and manage the relapsed patient. Medical and nursing consultation is available at
no cost to physicians, nurses and other health care professionals in the thirteen states
that comprise the Heartland Region and can be accessed by:
