    Will All Diseases Become Resistant To Antibiotics?

    Will all diseases eventually become resistant to Penicillin or antibiotics? How will medicine adapt to antibiotic resistant diseases?

    this is a question that the medical world hopes that the answer will be no. Resistant strain are appearing even to the latest antibiotics. As bacteria and pathogens evolve hope we could create newer antibiotics to combat those resistant strains. But I think we are currently losing this battle against the bacterias..

    I cannot exactly tell whether the future holds grim with diseases becoming resistant to antibiotics... but I can surely say that if it does happen, it will be a difficult fight for the medical science. We are presently experiencing a few diseases that have adapted into becoming resistant to the strongest of antibiotics (ex. antibiotic resistant PTB) and we are left frustrated and defenseless. I do hope this does not happen, because it will pave way for the possibility of disease causing agents to mutate into stronger forms that could really be a threat to humanity.

    Antibiotic resistance is a very are concern. I say this as an experienced registered nurse of many years, as well as a consumer. I remember writing on this subject 30-some years ago! Yet, not much has changed. While bacteria continue to develop resistant strains to current antibiotics, we also have the science to continue to develop more and better antibiotics. This is no excuse though for inappropriate prescription and overuse.

    What we as concerned citizens can do is to not ask for an antibiotic prescription when we have a viral infection, only when we have a bacterial infection that our physician believes is best treated with antibiotics. We should take the full prescription, even if we are feeling better to ensure that all organisms are killed so that we do not encourage the development of resistant organisms.

    Don't know, but at some point people have to realize antibiotics aren't the solution for everything and any antibiotic regimen to fight off an ailment, should be followed by a probiotic regimen.
