Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Blood tests are not done for Tb, sputum analysis, AFB, GEne expert are considered for active TB infection> Ignore the antigens and antibody titres.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
