Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)

A dengue test is a laboratory diagnostic procedure used to detect the presence of the dengue virus or antibodies against it in a patient's blood sample. Common tests include the NS1 antigen test for early detection of the virus, and IgM/IgG antibody tests to identify recent or past infections. PCR tests can also be used to detect the viral RNA.

 

Tests commonly done to diagnose dengue include:

  1. NS1 Antigen Test: Detects the dengue virus protein (NS1) early in the infection.
  2. IgM/IgG Antibody Test: Identifies antibodies produced in response to the dengue virus, indicating recent (IgM) or past (IgG) infections.
  3. PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) Test: Detects dengue viral RNA, providing a highly specific diagnosis, especially in the early stages of infection.

Dengue fever is typically diagnosed based on a combination of clinical symptoms and laboratory tests. Here are the steps to identify dengue fever:

  • High fever (up to 104°F or 40°C)
  • Severe headache
  • Pain behind the eyes
  • Severe joint and muscle pain
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Fatigue

Individuals at risk for dengue are those living in or traveling to tropical and subtropical areas where Aedes mosquitoes are common. Lab tests such as the NS1 antigen test, IgM/IgG antibody test, and RNA PCR test can help diagnose dengue in symptomatic patients from these regions.

 

The first stage of dengue, known as the febrile phase, is characterized by a sudden onset of high fever, severe headache, pain behind the eyes, joint and muscle pain, nausea, vomiting, and a rash. This phase typically lasts 2-7 days.

 

A normal dengue report would typically show negative results for the dengue virus NS1 antigen and both IgM and IgG antibodies. This indicates the absence of active dengue infection or recent exposure to the virus. However, interpretation of the report should be done in conjunction with clinical symptoms and other laboratory findings.

 

The best treatment for dengue is supportive care, including rest, hydration, and pain management.

 

A dengue test is conducted to diagnose the presence of any of the 4 viral strains of dengue, namely, DEN 1, DEN2, DEN3, and DEN4. This is a blood test that helps in detecting dengue fever by analysing the blood sample of an individual for IgM and IgG Read More
