As more than 600 people were diagnosed with H1N1 (or swine flu) in Alberta, flu vaccination clinics were flooded, while in Ontario, officials are saying up to 36 per cent of flu cases are actually H1N1. And this could only be the start.

Dr. Allison McGeer, head of infection control at Toronto's Mount Sinai Hospital, told the Canadian Press, Alberta's outbreak may be done, and Ontario's is at its peak right now.

The main difference between the seasonal flu and H1N1 is its effect on the lungs. As the Globe and Mail reported, while it is rare for the flu to move into the lungs, with H1N1, it can move down and infect the lungs, potentially causing a far more serious illness.

But for many people, it's hard to tell whether they have a cold, the flu or H1N1. Take a look at these symptoms to see what you're dealing with, and be sure to seek medical help when necessary.

Share this slide:

Feeling feverish or having a fever of 100°F or higher can be an indicator for the flu or H1N1 virus, though not everyone with the flu will get a fever. Fevers are unlikely with a common cold.

Feeling achy all over or getting a headache is another symptom of the flu or H1N1, and not generally associated with getting a cold. This tends to show as more general aches, as opposed to those confined to one area.

Nausea, Vomiting Or Diarrhea

Nausea is the most symptom of the flu, and less likely to occur with a cold. However, if you're vomiting continuously, this can indicate a more severe strain of the flu, and you should seek medical help.

A sore throat is usually the first indicator of the beginning of illness, whether it's a cold, the flu or worse.

Coughing occurs when one has a cold or the flu, though if it worsens, that can indicate a more severe strain, like H1N1.

An intense feeling of exhaustion, like not being able to get out of bed, is a sign that you have the flu or H1N1. This does not usually occur with a cold.

Chills can occur as a result of many kinds of bacterial and viral illnesses, including colds, the flu and H1N1.

Though a runny nose is most closely associated with a cold, it can also be part of having the flu or H1N1. Be sure to have plenty of tissues on hand to keep germs from spreading.

Dizziness is not a normal symptom for a cold or flu, and should be treated with seriousness.

Dehydration is a serious risk when you're ill, either because you feel too sick to drink or eat, or you've been vomiting and/or having diarrhea. Being dehydrated can indicate H1N1, and you should seek medical attention.

Pain In Stomach Or Chest

Feeling pains in your stomach or chest while or immediately after you have the flu can indicate a serious complication, like pneumonia. Seek medical help immediately.

High levels of ketones can poison the body. When levels get too high, you can develop DKA. DKA may happen to anyone with diabetes, though it is rare in people with type 2.

Treatment for DKA usually takes place in the hospital. But you can help prevent it by learning the warning signs and checking your urine and blood regularly.

DKA usually develops slowly. But when vomiting occurs, this life-threatening condition can develop in a few hours. Early symptoms include the following:

  • Thirst or a very dry mouth
  • Frequent urination
  • High blood glucose (blood sugar) levels
  • High levels of ketones in the urine

Then, other symptoms appear:

  • Constantly feeling tired
  • Dry or flushed skin
  • Nausea, vomiting, or abdominal pain
    (Vomiting can be caused by many illnesses, not just ketoacidosis. If vomiting continues for more than 2 hours, contact your health care provider.)
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Fruity odor on breath
  • A hard time paying attention, or confusion

Ketoacidosis (DKA) is dangerous and serious. If you have any of the above symptoms, contact your health care provider IMMEDIATELY, or go to the nearest emergency room of your local hospital.

You can detect ketones with a simple urine test using a test strip, similar to a blood testing strip. Ask your health care provider when and how you should test for ketones. Many experts advise to check your urine for ketones when your blood glucose is more than 240 mg/dl.

When you are ill (when you have a cold or the flu, for example), check for ketones every 4 to 6 hours. And check every 4 to 6 hours when your blood glucose is more than 240 mg/dl.

Also, check for ketones when you have any symptoms of DKA.

If your health care provider has not told you what levels of ketones are dangerous, then call when you find moderate amounts after more than one test. Often, your health care provider can tell you what to do over the phone.

The best way to protect yourself from complications of the flu is through vaccination.

Where to get Vaccinated
For information on the Flu Vaccination Campaign for each region of Québec, see the Where to get vaccinated section.

Certain protection and cleanliness measures can also help prevent transmission of the flu.

  • Wash your hands often
  • Keep your immediate environment clean, such as furniture surfaces and counters
  • Follow advice for Preventing Transmission of Viruses and Bacteria
  • Stay at home as soon as you notice symptoms of the flu. Unless otherwise advised by a doctor, home is the best place for treatment. By staying at home, you limit contact with other people or with other infections that may cause complications. You also limit transmission of the virus
  • Follow advice for Coughing or Sneezing Without Contaminating

Influenzanet: a network of European citizens fighting against influenza

Influenzanet is a Europe-wide network to monitor the activity of influenza-like-illness (ILI) with the aid of volunteers via the internet. It is operational in ten countries. In contrast with the traditional system of sentinel networks of mainly primary care physicians, Influenzanet obtains its data directly from the population. This creates a fast and flexible monitoring system whose uniformity allows for direct comparison of ILI rates between countries.

Click on each country to visit the national platform.

New paper on the Journal of Medical Internet Research

The Influenzanet consortium has published a new paper on the Journal of Medical Internet Research titled: "Influenzanet: Citizens Among 10 Countries Collaborating to Monitor Influenza in Europe". In this paper, we describe the Influenzanet participatory surveillance system and provide an overview of the results obtained from different analyses performed with the data, including representativeness analyses, data validation (comparing ILI incidence rates between Influenzanet and sentinel medical practice networks), identification of ILI risk factors, and influenza vaccine effectiveness (VE) studies previously published. Additionally, we present new VE analyses for the Netherlands, stratified by age and chronic illness, and offer suggestions for further work and considerations on the continuity and sustainability of the participatory system.

The flu activity page has been updated with incidence figures from the active countries. Read more.

Everything is ready for the new influenza season of 2017-2018. Some of the Influenzanet platforms have already started the data collection. Read more.

My daughter 12 myself and ex husband best friend and sister have all had continuous cold/flu symptoms since Sept 2014. We all been prescribed antibiotics antihistermenes inhalers etc by our own seperate GPs but we all have a continuous cough very bad mucus runny noses electric shock feelings and dizziness and aching joints. Nothing helps. Weve also discovered that our friends and other people we know have this. We are diversely spread across the UK Cardiff Bristol Cheltenham Devon Yorkshire etc. Has anyone else had these flulike symptoms for such a long time?

My friend and my mam have been like this for months and they can't seem to shake it at all too.

Ive looked on the net to try to see how widespread it is but theres nothing. My GP said he sees many patients every week with the same symptoms but he doesnt know what the solution is.

Not much hope for anyone of us if our doctors can not find a cure mel666 i have had this since before xmas and still far from right so hoping someone comes up with a cure soon as in my case even after antibiotics i still feel dreadful,so good luck anyone who has an answer

We are in cumbria and loads of people round here have had it all over christmas and before.

Surprisingly enough, one of the largest sources of body toxins is the drugs people take to fight disease (or so they think). Medicinal drugs are very strong—they have to be to overcome the body’s natural defense system.

When such drugs are taken, they must either be eliminated from the body or stored within it for later elimination.

As a person’s health improves and all such medicines and drugs are discontinued, the old toxins may enter the bloodstream for elimination. The circulation of these old drug toxins in the system may produce bewildering symptoms that could alarm the health seeker.

For example, an elderly man had been taking a form of digitalis (a heart stimulant) for several years. He discontinued the drug as he improved his health through exercise.

After a few days off the drug, he experienced erratic heart beats, a racing pulse and chest pains. He was frightened and wondered if he should take his old drug again.

He was reassured that these symptoms were due to his body trying to renormalize itself and eliminate the old toxins from the heart drug. Sure enough, after a few days his heartbeat became steady and regular as the drug toxins were finally eliminated.

Every drug used, whether legal or illegal, leaves its mark upon the body. As the body regains health, the drug deposits are put into circulation for elimination. Since a combination of past drug deposits may enter the Bloodstream at once disconcerting symptoms may arise. Drug detoxification can be a lengthy process, but it will be aided by fasting and a diet high in fresh fruits.

Be forewarned: Old drugs that were taken even many years ago may reappear in the bloodstream as they leave fatty tissues and the organs. Drug toxin elimination may express itself in a series of rashes as they leave the body through the skin.

Heavy smokers or coffee drinkers may experience similar symptoms when they withdraw from their drug. Nervous irritability and emotional outbreaks are common symptoms of these drug addicts when they are detoxifying.

Nicotine and caffeine damage the nervous system and upset the vascular system, so symptoms such as headaches, edginess, and extreme lassitude may be expected. Such symptoms from these drugs usually lessen after three to ten days.

Once salt use is stopped and the health improves, old salt deposits in the body exit through the skin and kidneys. Sometimes the elimination is so intense that a person may have a continual salty taste in the mouth for days. The skin may become crusted with salt or it may smell of the particular condiment that is being eliminated (such as onions, peppers, or vinegar).

In Mexico, corpses have been found in the desert that were untouched by buzzards and hyenas. The reason? The people had eaten such large quantities of hot peppers all their lives that their skins were actually too spicy for the scavengers to eat. Condiments can never be used by the body, and so they must either be stored or eliminated when the health is improved.

I would think the fever should be gone by now if you have taken her in 2 times. If it's been more than 3 or 4 days, definitely. Especially since you're pregnant and can't afford to get something serious. I hope she gets better soon!

My pediatrician told me that 105 temp is when you need to get them to the ER. That answer scared the heck out of me. I keep an ample supply of popcicles on hand in the event of a fever. The doctor told me to give them as many popcicles as they will take just stay away from the red ones. If they eat red and then throw up they cant distinguish between blood and popcicle. The popcicles seem to work better for my son that the Tylenol and Advil and I dont feel like I was over medicating.

I don't think I know enough details to give an accurate opinion, but I have a couple of thoughts and questions.

1. how long has she had the fever, if it's just a few days, I would make sure she has plenty of water and sleep and not worry too much about it. Dehydration is very serious, so water is crucial.
2. if it has been 5 days or more, what other symptoms does she have? diarrhea? vomiting? lethargic? lack of appetite? cough? achy?
3. Those temparatures are pretty high, but I believe the danger zone is 105.

See if you can find the homeopathic remedy Oscillococcinum. It is usually at natural food stores, but it can also be found at Fred Meyer and maybe other places now, too (like Rite Aid). It is safe for ages 2+, and if it is the flu that she has, I think this will help her. At the very least, it can't hurt her. My favorite book on this subject is "Flu: Alternative Treatments and Prevention" by Randall Neustaedter (find it on Amazon). It would be good for you to keep the Oscillococcinum on hand for yourself as well since you are pregnant and might not be able to take other remedies. Hope this helps and that your little one gets better fast!

Tylenol temporarily supresses the immune system. As long as the fever never goes over 105, your child will be fine. The point of the fever is to make the body uninhabitable for the organisms making her sick, so as long as it isn't too high, you don't want to bring it down. Instead you want to give her lots of fluids and help her stay comfortable.

I recommend running down to your local health food store and picking up Dr Christopher's tincture called Kid-e-Well Cold and Flu Formula. I also recommend visiting www.askdrsears.com for more information on when it is necessary to take your child to the emergency room for a fever.

may God bless your child and keep you strong!

I don't blame you for being concerned. It is always unnerving when your child has a high fever. I had similar concerns about what if a child's fever peaks during the night & I'm not aware of it. I talked to my pediatrician about it and he reassured me that if a child's fever is too high, they will never sleep through it. They will feel so awful they will always wake up. That knowledge gives me some peace of mind when I go to sleep at night while my kids are sick. Hopefully it will do the same for you.

I would just keep in touch with my doctor if the fever persists & follow his/her advice.

Our son was 2 when he got the flu and ran a fever 103-104 for 8 days ( worst at night ). It was miserable then and we didn't sleep much but he is 8 and healthy. Fevers do not cause brain damage until 107 or so and they are how the body fights the illness. Make sure he keeps drinking and to lots of snuggling when he feels rotten and he should come through OK.

You are not crazy to be concerned. It is very scarey when a little one gets that high a fever. Remember to keep her fluid intake up so she does not get dehydrated. Soups, Water, juices etc.. At fevers that high there is always the possibility of a fever induced seizure. I have never had it happen to my children who are teenagers now but recently one of my daycare children spiked a fever (during a simple bout of cold) for no reason over a week-end and had a seizure. Scared both parents. If your child's fever does not break soon I would take her to the MD. It never hurts to have them do a check of the child to be sure it is just a virus and not an infection. you can never be too careful with little ones. Also you don't need to live with this stress while being 4 - 5 month pregnant.

Sounds like you did all the right stuff to bring her fever down and I am hoping it is down now. Things you can do to keep her from getting sick in the future are to boost her immune system. Echinacea, goldenseal, garlic, vitamins A and C and zinc are all great ways to boost our immune system. You can take all or some, they all help in different ways. Keep her away from sugar and white flour, both of which lower your immune system and make you vulnerable to illnesses.
(and tend to make kids whiney.)
I wrote a book called Shopper's Guide to Healthy Living that will help get you started keeping your family healthy. It takes only four hours to read and has many great explanations, references and tear-out shopping lists. Good luck!

My son was plagued with high fevers(105) all the time. I was told by a Dr. to not do the luke warm baths, but to take a cold wet washcloth and put it in the groin area and armpits. It worked like a charm for us. 106 you need to bring to ER. Seizures were a concern for me also, but he never had one(thank God). We kept on the alternating motrin and tylenol and sometimes all it did was keep it at that temp and not lower it. Remember, fevers as scary as they are, are they way their little bodies fight. Fevers are good. If it doesn't go away after a few days then call the Dr. again to make sure she is still in the same diagnosis. Also, wake her in the night to give meds, to keep fever down.

I am a Mother of two boys, 5 and 2. Stay at home during the week and work weekends.

My 2yr old just had the flu. We took him to the ER room because he was holding his breath off and on due to his body hurting all over. The ER said taking him there was the right thing to do. He to was running fevers that would get very high. They did a flu test on him and he came up positive. They gave him medication for the flu and he started getting better (not right away). He also ended up with two ear infections during this time too. The flu is lasting up to a month to get rid of all symptoms.
We were very frightened because a 4 yr old boy just died from the flu. We were afraid that we were being over protective. If you feel that something isn't right, take him in.
Hope this helps.

My 2 (now 3) year old was very very sick last winter also. The Dr. told me that they aren't really concerned in little ones until the fever gets to 105-106! Scary I know, but it is true. Her fever got so high that it made blood vessels rupture in her nose. It is so very scary I know - but they are so resilient. Fevers are a good thing. It means her body is fighting and that's a good sign. Just hang in there - it will pass.

Sounds like everything is normal. Take her to the emergency room at 104.5. Give her pedialite and water. Fever is the natural way the human body fights disease. It does 2 things, increase your fighter T-cells and your white blood immunity cells. The other thing is when we have a fever disease is unable to live in that environment so a fever actually kills disease.

If you’re dog is unlucky enough to get parvo and you get to the vet in time, this post will give you a little bit of what to expect.

Honestly, there’s not much they can do. The true danger of parvo is dehydration and malnutrition, so that’s what the vet will focus on. Mostly the dog will be pumped with IV fluids containing vitamins, sugar, and potassium. This can be done at home, if you’re up for it, but most of the time hospitalization is required.

In some cases, the vet may also inject your dog with some sort of anti-nausea medication to help prevent anymore regurgitation.

Once a dog can finally begin keeping his food and fluids down, IV’s are gradually reduced. Very bland food is offered. Many times, a vet will also administer antibiotics to help ward off secondary infection, because the dog’s immune system will be severely weak from the experience.

Some anecdotal reports claim that Tamiflu reduces parvo’s severity and can aid in faster recovery if given early enough. Also, a substance produced by silkworm larvae has been shown to be effective, but research is still preliminary.

There are also natural remedies that many people have had success with, such as Parvo-K. We’ve seen far too many testimonials to ignore it, and so we’re offering it here on the site for a discounted price. Buy Parvo-K here.

As always, your first resort should be to get your dog to a veterinarian ASAP. If you can’t afford that, however, Parvo-K might be a suitable alternative.

Dog parvo prevention is really the same as rabies prevention; you just have to make sure your dog has all of their necessary vaccinations.

Vaccinations should start after the puppy is 6 to 8 weeks old. Up until that point, a puppy is typically protected against most sicknesses because its mother’s anti-bodies are still flowing through it’s blood. But now it has to build up its own system of protection.

The initial shot is followed by booster shots in the following weeks, followed by a yearly one after that to keep the protection up. Unless your dog is of a particularly susceptible breed, it’s probably safe to discontinue the booster shots after a few years.

As always, talk to your vet to get your dog on an appropriate vaccination schedule to minimize the risks of this deadly virus.

For a 100% natural prevention method that will help maintain a healthy digestive system and fluid balance in dogs and puppies, which are some of the things parvo attacks, try Parvo-K.

Dog Parvo Intestinal Infection Causes and Symptoms

The intestinal form of dog parvo is the most common form. It’s contracted orally through infected feces, soil, etc.

After ingestion, the lymphatic system serves as the replicating point for the virus, particularly around the throat. The bloodstream is then infected, and the virus begins attacking other lymphatic cells, the intestines, and bone marrow.

Healthcare workers are strongly encouraged to get immunized. The proportion of health care workers getting vaccinated against influenza in 2016/17 was 63%, compared to 61% in 2015/16.

Alberta has a voluntary immunization policy for healthcare workers, and are focused on education, promotion, and making it as easy as possible for health care workers to get immunized.

Cat Flu Symptoms, treatment and causes
(Upper Respiratory Disease)


Cat with Cat Flu Symptoms.
Inflamed and Discharging Eyes

Cat flu is the general name given to a viral infection of the upper respiratory tract in cats. It is a common disease in cats and although not usually fatal in previously healthy adult cats it can cause death in kittens and immuno-suppressed older cats

Cat flu is most commonly caused by the Feline Herpes Virus-1 (FHV-1), or Feline Calicivirus (FCV)

Feline Herpes Virus is the more serious of the two. It is also known as Feline Virus Rhinotracheitis which is an older term for the virus.

Feline Herpes virus infects the membranes of the eyes, the lining of the nose, pharynx, sinuses, and throat.

Cat flu in general is a very contagious disease and can spread quickly from cat to cat.


Cat Flu: The most common symptoms of a Feline Herpes Virus infection are:

The virus affects the membranes of the eyes. (Conjunctivitis) The eyes are swollen and red with a discharge that is often filled with pus when secondary bacterial infection invade.

Sometimes the cat may develop corneal ulcers.

Sneezing is one of the most common symptoms. The nasal linings are inflamed (Rhinitis) There is a discharge from the nose which begins as a clear fluid. The discharge then turns thick and green as the disease progresses. Cats can often lose their sense of smell.

Fever and Depression & Loss of Appetite:

Often the cat runs a fever and generally feels unwell. Cats will often lose their appetite and sometimes become dehydrated. Although they are dehydrated they may refuse to drink water.

    Always consult your healthcare provider to ensure the information displayed on this page applies to your personal circumstances.

    Coryza is a term that describes the inflammation of the mucous membrane in the nasal cavity which results to nasal congestion, loss of smell and others.. According to medical sites, it is synonymous or associated with having colds or runny nose. It comes from a Greek word Koryza wherein the words “kara” and “zeein” are combined and it means boiling over head.

    When a person experiences coryza, it is not always due to infection or allergic reaction. It can also happen when a person is exposed to cold temperature, eating spicy foods and even narcotic withdrawal. Also, coryza is one of the hallmarks of the “four Cs” of measles. It includes: Cough, Conjuctivitis, Koplik’s Spots and Coryza.

    Having a stuffy nose or coryza can be a symptom of a certain condition or disease. Usually, the condition affects the respiratory system and it is associated with symptoms like:

    • Cough
    • Sputum production or phlegm- clear, yellow, light brown or green mucus
    • Shortness of breath
    • Loss of smell
    • Sneezing
    • Sore throat
    • Nasal congestion
    • Headache
    • Body aches or body malaise
    • Enlarged lymph nodes
    • Fever
    • Fatigue
    • Fainting

    Since coryza is a hallmark symptom of measles, a person with measles will also feel the following symptoms:

    • Fever
    • Loss of appetite
    • Runny nose
    • Rashes that develops from two to four days and it starts in the face, then the trunk and the arms and legs
    • Koplik’s spot or grayish spots inside the cheek
    • Conjunctivitis

    • Rhinitis
    • Sinusitis
    • Common colds
    • Allergic reactions due to pollens, animal dander, some foods and medicines
    • Measles
    • Influenza or flu

    Coryza is not a life threatening disease. Usually common colds will go away even if medication is not taken. However, to completely eradicate the feeling of discomfort treating the underlying conditions would help. For instance, in cases where a person experiences sinusitis or rhinitis, a person may take antibiotics, antihistamine if there are allergies and even nasal irrigation. Surgeries may also be done for chronic rhinitis or sinusitis. An example of the surgery is FESS or the functional endoscopic sinus surgery. There is a removal of the anatomical and pathological obstructions in the sinuses or other parts of the nasal area to restore the normal clearance of the sinuses. Surgeries however should be done for patient who cannot find relief of finds very minimal relief for chronic diseases.

    Antihistamines and some antibiotics would also be given to patient’ experiencing coryza due to allergies like pollens, animal dander and even food allergies. There are also decongestants that would help the person relieve from colds and some nasal sprays.

    For children or adults with measles, there is no specific drug to treat this problem. Doctors would recommend getting plenty of rests, increasing their fluid intake, using vaporizer since it can help the person ease from cough. Sponge baths using lukewarm water is also therapeutic to help avoid fever and reduce discomfort. Some medications like pain relievers and NSAIDs or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs to help them feel comfortable and reduce fever and some pain. there are also vaccinations to prevent measles which offered to babies from 9 month onwards. It is best to consult pediatricians to know more about the vaccination.

    Aside from the medications, there are also foods that will help the person get some relief from coryza. These foods include:

    • Apple- it is ideal to eat apple without peeling them before meals
    • Tea- this provides relief from colds, sneezing and some secretions. But if the patient has sinusitis accompanied with thick and foul smelling secretions, taking tea is not advisable.
    • Grapes- about 50 grams of grapes prevents colds
    • Mulberry
    • Betel leaf
    • Amla

    There is also no need to spend money on medications since home remedies can be done to treat coryza.

    1. Orange juice – it is advisable to drink cold orange juice during summer and hot orange juice in winter. Orange juice powder is not advisable. Instead, they should peel the oranges in small pieces and boil in. they should strain the orange and use only the juice.
    2. Aniseed – boiling the 15 grams of aniseed plus 7 cloves in ½ liter of water. Only about ¼ should be taken and they can add sugar if desired.
    3. Coriander – coriander provides energy to the brain so they need to boil about 125 grams of coriander powder in ½ liter of water. After straining, they can add about 125 grams of sugar and heat the mixture again.
    4. Lemon – make some lemon juice in lukewarm water. It can be taken in the morning and evening and it can be mixed with honey.
    5. Figs – 5 figs to be boiled in water and then strained. It should be taken in the morning and evening.
    6. Garlic – eating garlic can also be beneficial to get rid of sneezing and some colds.
    7. Pepper and milk – adding 5 pieces of long pepper in milk while boiling it can also be a remedy for coryza.
    8. Carrot – mixing 325 ml of carrot juice (readily made or prepared) and 125 ml of spinach juice can provide relief from colds and coryza.
    9. Turmenic – missing a teaspoon of turmenic powder in hot water and taking it three times a days can provide remedy for coryza and even asthma.

    Yoga, which is becoming popular these days because of the benefits it bring can also provide relief from coryza. Certain yoga poses like Bhastrika Pranayam, Kalplabhati Pranayama nd Anulom Vilom Pranayam can be done by the patient. These poses though must be performed on a daily basis to experience total relief from coryza.

    Swine influenza is actually a broad term used to refer to a number of types of influenza viruses that are contracted by pigs. Some types of swine flu can also be contracted by humans. Humans can get swine flu from pigs, but this is pretty rare. Humans can also pass swine flu on to other humans.

    The current (2009) outbreak of swine flu (H1N1) is not actually a virus that people can get from pigs. It is very similar to a virus that pigs get, but it is not the same. The name is deceiving.

    People spread this swine flu virus to other people the same way the regular flu is spread. It's a virus and when people with swine flu cough or sneeze, tiny droplets of the virus are sprayed into the air. If you breathe in these droplets, you can catch swine flu. Also, if a person with swine flu coughs or sneezes on something like a phone or doorknob and you touch that object and then touch your mouth or nose, you can catch the flu.

    While most cases of swine influenza are fairly mild, it can be a very serious illness and people do die from it. People die from the regular flu, as well, but the swine flu is more likely to be deadly. It is wise to take steps to prevent getting sick.

    A swine flu vaccine has recently been approved, and is expected to be available around mid-October of 2009. The swine flu vaccine will probably require two different shots, given a week or two apart. The vaccine will take a couple weeks to "kick in," so you would not actually be immune until some time in November. Contact your doctor in October if you are interested in getting a swine flu vaccine. The regular flu vaccine will not protect you against swine flu.

    Treatment for swine influenza is pretty much the same as treatment for other types of flu. In most cases, the virus will clear up on its own even without any treatment. However, treatment may speed the recovery process, and there is treatment available to help with the symptoms as well.

    Antiviral medications may be prescribed to speed to the recovery process. They work by preventing the virus from replicating itself. Antiviral medications are not usually necessary, but can be helpful. You will need to see your doctor and get a prescription if you want to try them.

    There are a number of over-the-counter remedies that can help relieve flu symptoms. Try Tylenol for fever, an antihistamine for runny nose and sneezing, and a cough suppressant for cough. You can have problems if you take too many over-the-counter drugs at one time, though, so you might do best to talk to your doctor or pharmacist about which medications would be best to take.

    Although over-the-counter flu remedies will provide some relief, we have found two products that may be significantly more effective:

    • A highly recommended natural flu remedy is Sambucol. It is a homeopathic remedy that relieves flu symptoms, including fever, headache, body aches, chills, sore throat, coughing, and sneezing. It also helps speed the recovery process.

    See your doctor in mid-fall if you want to get a swine flu vaccine. If you do catch the flu, you do not normally need to see a doctor, as the symptoms will generally go away on their own without treatment. However, if your symptoms are particularly severe, if you have a high fever, if your symptoms last longer than a week, or if you have trouble breathing, you should see a doctor. While most cases of the flu, including swine flu, are fairly mild, the flu can be serious, even deadly, so contact your doctor if you have concerns.

    Getting the flu means missing work, school, and special events like the big game, a wedding, spring break or a special birthday party. It puts life on hold. But even worse, for people at higher risk for complications it can be very serious, even life threatening. Stay healthy and help keep the people closest to you healthy too by getting a seasonal flu vaccine. Even if the vaccine isn’t a perfect match with the circulating flu viruses, it’s still the best way to prevent getting the flu. Be sure to wash your hands frequently. If you do get sick, remember to cough into your arm or elbow, and stay home so you don’t spread the illness to others.

    What is influenza?
    Influenza is commonly referred to as the “flu”. It is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses that infect the nose, throat and lungs. The flu can cause mild to severe illness, and at times can lead to death. The best way to prevent the flu is by getting a flu vaccine each year.

    What are the symptoms of flu?
    Symptoms of flu may include fever (though not everyone with flu will have a fever), cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, fatigue (tiredness), chills, and sometimes diarrhea and vomiting. Symptoms usually appear 1 to 3 days after exposure. Although most people are ill for less than a week, some people have complications and may need to be hospitalized.

    Who gets influenza?
    Influenza can infect persons of all ages. The flu can be especially serious for babies, children, pregnant women, adults 65 years and older, people with certain long-term medical conditions (e.g., lung disease, heart disease, cancer, or diabetes), or those with weak immune systems. However, even healthy people can get the flu and should protect themselves by getting the flu vaccine every year.

    How is it spread?
    The flu virus spreads easily in discharges from the nose and throat of an infected person. It is often spread by coughing, sneezing or talking. A person might also get the flu by touching a surface or object that has the flu virus on it, and then touching his or her own mouth, eyes or nose.

    When and for how long is a person able to spread the disease?
    Influenza can spread from one person to another beginning one day before symptoms start up to five to seven days after becoming sick. This means that you may be able to pass on the flu to someone else before you know you are sick, as well as while you are sick. If you have the flu, make sure you stay at home and away from school, work, or other activities until you are fever-free for 24 hours (without the use of a medicine to reduce your fever).

    When kids get the flu those fevers are normal (even higher too) and it's common that the motrin/tylenol isn't that helpful.

    There is a test available to see whether it is actuallly flu or not - a Q-tip nasal swab test. Not pleasant, but if it is flu, the doctor can give her TamiFlu, which would help her get over it.

    YOu could also give the homeopathic remedy called Oscillo. We just went through the flu last week - 2 of my daughters had it - and I took Oscillo because I was fighting it too. It's completely safe and it totally worked for me. (I got it at wal mart - full name is oscillococcinum). The label doesn't say it, but if you try it, take it apart from food (don't eat within 30 minutes).

    Hope your little one feels better soon!!

    I'm not a doctor, but my son had influenza a few years ago.

    While high fevers are scary, they actually are not proven to cause any damage. It's the virus or bacteria that causes problems. Does your doctor seem concerned about the fever? Ask him or her specifically. Call another one for a second opinion if you can't get a good answer.

    You should work hard to keep her hydrated. If she stops taking fluids, call your doctor. Watch for too rapid breathing as well. When my son had influenza, he developed pneumonia within two days and was breathing about 90 times a minute!

    When my children have gotten sick it is not on common for them to spike to 105. Whenever I have taken them to the ER they have given them a dose of Tylenol & Motrin at the same time to knock the fever down and then go back to alternating every 3 hours. Now we just use that protocol at home when they spike a fever that high. It does the trick every time. I would hate to recommend that to you without checking with your Doctor first but I wanted to let you know that is what we do and we have had a lot of experience with fevers! They are scary but the moms always seem more worried then the nurses and Doctors. We went to the ER once with a temp. of 106 and hallucinations and the nurses were so calm about it - I of course was not! Good luck.

    Hi M., I'm an RN (and a mom). The important things to watch for during an illness with a high fever are fluid intake (pedialyte is ideal and preferable to water or juice) and how your child looks overall: is she pale, limp, listless, or lethargic. Some indications of dehydration are no urination in 8 hrs. or a whitish, sticky, "dry" tongue. If these things occur, or if your child just doesn't look right to you (because, as a mom, your intuition is a valuable indicator) you should take her to the ER if her pediatrician is not available to see her. Also, if she is becoming more congested or having any difficulty breathing, you should seek medical attention immediately. There is always an MD on call for a medical practice, so you should be able to contact someone from her pediatrician's office after hours if needed. It is normal to be scared when your baby has a high fever. I was terrifed when my son got the flu one year and I couldn't get his fever down. You should ask your pediatrician if you are giving her the optimal dose of tylenol and/or motrin for her weight, the over the counter doses listed on the package are for the average weight of a child for the age (don't change your dosing without talking to the doctor first). When you put her down for the night, cover her lightly to minimize the fever. The research used to indicate that febrile seizures were related to how quickly the temp spiked upward rather than the actual temp, so, although you are right to be concerned about seizures it may not be that likely to happen. I don't know if the current research still supports this theory, though (again, check with the doctor). If she is still running that high of a fever after a few days, it would be prudent for her pediatrician to make sure she doesn't have a bacterial infection of some sort rather than a virus (infuenza is caused by a virus). If she's not better within a few days, or seems to be getting worse, you should definitely take her back to the doctor. Good luck, I hope she gets better soon:). L. E.

    Prednisone is a steroidal drug that is used to combat many common ailments that are of a serious nature. Along with this medication, you will receive specific instructions on how to take it. This will include a proper regimen for coming off of the medicine gradually at the end of treatment. Why is this the case? Abruptly ceasing the use of prednisone can result in prednisone withdrawal symptoms. What do these symptoms include?

    One of the most common symptoms of prednisone withdrawal is a feeling of weakness or severe fatigue. This is because the immune system is weakened. It may also result in body aches and a low grade fever as though a cold were coming on. Joint pain is also common. Also on the list of prednisone withdrawal side effects is depression. This is because withdrawal from the drug causes hormonal changes in the body. Also because of the hormone changes, a woman who comes off of prednisone too quickly may experience side effects concerning her menstrual cycle. It may become temporarily irregular.

    Prednisone and Weight Gain: Prednisone also may often cause rapid weight gain in those who are taking it. After ceasing the medication, the weight will likely also come back off quickly.

    This can worsen feelings of fatigue. Nausea is also common. If the nausea is very bad, it may result in fainting. So do not be surprised if you loose some weight rather rapidly after ending your prednisone treatment.

    Please note that the longer you are on prednisone, the worse you can expect the prednisone withdrawal symptoms to be should you cease taking the medication suddenly. For this reason, doctors generally only prescribe prednisone for short periods of time unless absolutely necessary.

    Generally prednisone is prescribed for immune disorders, serious allergic reactions, or severe inflammation. If you stop the medication too quickly, the disease will likely recur. This is because the body is still depending on the medication to keep the condition at bay. This also makes it vital to come off of the medication gradually, so that your body has time to adjust and fight your health problem without the prednisone.

    For these and other reasons it is vital that prednisone be taken as prescribed. This includes the length of time that medication should be taken, the dosage to be used, and the regimin for coming off of the drug. When used properly, prednisone can help with may serious conditions, and the majority of the prednisone withdrawal symptoms can be avoided.

    The Symptoms And Treatment
    Of Canine Diabetes Explained


    If You Love Your Dog And Are Worried Canine Diabetes Might Shorten His Or
    Her Life — Relax, Help Is At Hand.

    We can help if you have a problem feeding
    your diabetic dog, need accurate information,
    or want to save money on treatment.

    When your dog is first diagnosed, Vets will often offer good advice on the initial treatment but be aware that much of this advice is quoted from textbooks and very few Vets have experience of treating a diabetic dog in a home environment.

    Whilst there is no outright cure to diabetes in dogs, it can be controlled and our helpful guide give lots of useful information to help you and your pet to lead a near normal life.

    There are three forms of canine diabetes, all of which display very similar symptoms, the most noticeable being:

    1. Your dog has increased urination.
    2. Your dog drinks frequently / excessively.
    3. Your dog begins to lose weight.
    4. Your dog is often tired, lethargic or sleeps more often.

    Note that these symptoms are not exclusive to diabetes, but they are often the earliest signs detectable by owners.

    Increased Urination
    The increased urination is due to excess glucose which the animal is unable to process normally and so tries to get rid of by urinating. This frequent urination causes greater thirst, thus the animal must drink more frequently to replace the lost fluids.

    Ketones
    If the body cannot gain sufficient energy from the food consumed, it will burn stored fat resulting in a loss of body weight and ketones to become present.

    Weight loss in a diabetic dog which eats normally or even one with an increased appetite is not uncommon. Ketones levels in the bloodstream can be tested and treatment, usually dietary, administered. If left untreated this can lead to ketoacidosis which in serious cases can become an emergency condition leading to coma and even death.
