Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)

There are many diseases the instances of which seem to rise during the monsoons, and the 5 most common types of fever among them, include dengue, malaria, chikungunya, typhoid, and viral fever. However, as several symptoms displayed by these diseases are common, a fever profile test is necessary for understanding the root cause of the symptoms one is displaying.

A fever profile test can include a number of diagnostic tests that are performed to diagnose conditions like malaria, dengue, typhoid, chikungunya, viral fever, etc. With the help of these tests, doctors can diagnose the root cause of a person’s fever and other related symptoms.

The monsoon season brings with it, a number of infections like malaria, dengue, chikungunya, etc., and all of these diseases tend to have the similar basic symptoms that a person may display, with only a few distinguishing factors. So, it may get a bit difficult to distinguish one infection from another. A fever panel test includes a number of tests that are performed to identify the exact cause behind the fever and other symptoms that a person is displaying.

The exact list of blood tests in a fever profile may vary based on the panel chosen, but here are the most common tests that you can expect:

No. Generally, there is no requirement to observe an overnight fasting before sample collection for a fever profile test. However, it is best to consult a doctor who will take factors like one's medical history, age, etc. in consideration and suggest if any specific preparations are required before the test.

To identify the root cause of a persistent fever, a blood test may be required. It gives certain information about a person’s health status and helps identify the disease affecting a person. The blood test becomes necessary, as there are several diseases that may display similar symptoms, so for proper diagnosis and treatment, a blood test may be prescribed by a doctor.

If one is displaying symptoms like headaches, excessive sweating, nausea, pain behind the eyes, etc., apart from high fever, a doctor may ask them to undergo a dengue fever test to either ascertain or rule out dengue as the cause behind the symptoms.

As the name suggest, a dengue fever test is performed to diagnose a particular viral infection (dengue) that is commonly spread by mosquitos. The most common symptoms of this infection include high fever, swollen glands, rashes, severe headache, joint and muscle pain, nausea, fatigue, etc. These symptoms usually show up 4-7 days after getting infected. If left untreated, dengue can lead to severe complications, like plasma leaking, fluid accumulation, respiratory distress, organ impairment, and may even be fatal.

No. An infected person cannot spread dengue fever to other people. It is a mosquito-borne viral infection and is very common during the monsoon season, which is a very most favorable time for mosquitos to breed. If one has been spending time with an infected person, there is the possibility that they may have been bitten by the same mosquito, so it is always the safer choice to undergo a diagnostic test for dengue fever if that is the case or if one starts displaying symptoms of the infection.

Typhoid fever is caused by bacteria named Salmonella typhi. A person can contract typhoid through ingesting contaminated food or drinking water. This is a highly contagious infection, and an infected person can pass the bacteria out of their body through their stool or, less commonly, through urine. When an individual develops symptoms that indicate a typhoid fever, doctors prescribe a blood test for typhoid fever diagnosis, as timely treatment is of prime importance.

During the monsoon season, the risk of infections is higher than any other season. The high moisture in the atmospheric air is one of the primary reasons behind this as it tends to create the ideal condition for mosquitos, bacteria, and viruses to br Read More
