Dengue screening

What is dengue screening?

Dengue fever is a viral infection that is spread via a mosquito bite. The Aedes mosquito is the common carrier of this virus and passes this infection from one person to the next.

Dengue screening involves a series of blood tests to check for the viral antibodies to confirm the presence of dengue and to check the platelet counts. 

Dengue fever test is recommended for patients showing visible symptoms of dengue or has prolonged exposure to fever. Sometimes, people are advised to undergo a diagnostic test for dengue if the fever is high and recurrent. 

What are the symptoms of dengue fever?

Some of the common symptoms of dengue are high viral fevervomitingjoint painrashes, fatigue,  low blood pressure and bleeding. Since the symptoms are similar to a common viral infection, dengue may be often overlooked. But if left untreated, it can lead to failure in the circulatory system and liver dysfunctioning. If there is a second attack of the virus, then the patient is at a greater risk as their immune system is compromised. 

It is better to consult with general doctors for effective treatment.
