TB of the kidneys is not contagious but TB of the lungs, is very contagious. So it is important to make sure that she does not have TB of the lungs. If she does have TB of the lungs, she will have to be treated as soon as possible. This can be determined by having a sputum test done. Once she starts treatment for TB of the lungs, she will no longer be contagious.
