Yes, a person can be cured of TB
No, TB does not stay with you all your life
Your life does not shorten
If you have latent TB, you are not contagious and not sick. The chance of a latent TB ever turning into active TB is 5% in your lifetime. Usually after many years you have an even lower chance
Yes, an anorexic person can probably get TB easier.

A person can survive TB. Yes, TB says with you your whole life. There is no way to rid TB from your body but there are things you can do to keep it dormant. Any medical condition can make you more sensive to TV.

Look it up on mayoclinic.com. My husband says there is a lot of easy to understand info there. Yes, a person can survive TB, but I think it somehow stays with you. Look it up yourself to make sure.

Yes, a person can survive TB if it is latent (meaning they show no symptoms)
TB can stay with you all your life, until you die from it.
Yes, your life does shorten.
There is treatment for it, but some TB is drug resistant, I don't think it can fully leave the body, because it's a bacteria.
I don't know if an anorexic person is more sensitive.Source(s): I did a project on TB last year. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tuberculosis http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tuberculosis_treatmen...
