D.C.: Is is safe to travel to Central America?

Richard Wenzel: I have not heard of any reports of influenza in Central America, but it is likely that some cases will come to light in the next few weeks. CDC will suggest postponing non-essential travel to Mexico today. So the best advise is to stay alert to their travel advisories.

Fredericksburg, Va.: What is the possibility of EU countries closing borders to international travel from the United States?

Richard Wenzel: Whenever there are risks of transmission of new infections from one country to another, there is always some risk that travel restrictions will result. We saw that with SARS and could see that with swine flu if the numbers and severity increase in the US.

Cleveland, Ohio: The case of swine flu in Ohio occurred in Elyria, which is very close to Cleveland. Is it possible that Tamiflu will be made available for people in our area to take now as a precautionary measure? You mentioned that people who have been "exposed" to the virus should take it, but how does one know if one has in fact been exposed?

Richard Wenzel: This is a difficult question. The exposures that qualify for prophylaxis include those within families or those with prolonged exposure such as that of a school. Unless the outbreak is wide spread, general prophylaxis is not indicated.

State College, Pa.: Why is this virus receiving such rapid, mass attention when there are so many viruses passed around all the time?

Richard Wenzel: This is a new virus not seen before, it may have caused 100 deaths in Mexico, and it has been quickly identified in countries on three continents. Influenza is more than a common cold with respect to its ability to harm patients. These are some of the reasons for the attention given to the new virus.

Washington, D.C.: I'm having a little trouble reconciling the president's "there no immediate danger" comments as well as the Post's Check-up blog that basically says "chill out folks" with your comments suggesting everything from face masks to foregoing handshakes to consternation that the threat level has not been elevated. Which is it?

Richard Wenzel: This is a serious problem and now is the time to prepare for all contingencies. We need to be extra cautious until we know the extent of transmission and of the virulence of the virus. It is also a time for scenario playing, i.e. the what ifs: Communication, drug supply and delivery, infection control recommendations for hospitals, development of hot lines that might be needed etc. In summary, this is the time for special precautions, but not panic or alarm.

Penn Quarter, D.C.: Is this the same swine flu that was around in the mid 1970s? Will the shot I got then help me now?

Richard Wenzel: Unfortunately this is different virus, and it is unlikely that you are protected, but I have not seen specific antibody analyses yet.

Virginia Beach, Va.: Are there any special precautions or drugs that my son should take as a patient currently undergoing chemotherapy, hence with a very compromised immune system?

Richard Wenzel: At this point, I would not recommend prophylaxis. However, if the epidemic spreads to your city, it may be prudent to offer prophylaxis for a period of time. You should consult with his oncologist about the timing for such an approach.

20002: Can this virus be spread through the air? Or does you have to touch something that has the virus on it and then touch your mouth, nose, etc.

  • Be aware, one of the main ways of transmission of this virus is the air.
  • When in a closed space with someone with a cold, cover your face.
  • When someone sneezes or coughs, the germs travel and lands on surfaces.
  • Wash your hands after you touch doorknobs, keyboards, remote control, ATM machine.
  • Be aware of hand to face contamination.
  • Avoid people who appear to be sick.
  • Eat a healthy diet.
  • Eat foods that strengthen the immune system.

One of the best common cold and flu treatments and prevention is, avoiding someone who is sick and washing your hand frequently. Thankfully today there are many hand sanitizer on the market. Make sure you always have a bottle of sanitizer with you, if you can’t wash your hands immediately. Also, when at home periodically disinfect surfaces and doorknobs regularly. Antibacterial soap containing triclosan is also very helpful.

Pregnancy symptoms differ from woman to woman and pregnancy to pregnancy; however, one of the most significant pregnancy symptoms is a delayed or missed period.

Understanding the signs of pregnancy is important because each symptom may have causes other than pregnancy. You may experience pregnancy signs within a week of conception.

Some women report that they did not experience any symptom for a few weeks. If you need free testing, you can search below or order affordable early detection pregnancy tests online.

If you would like to speak to someone about your symptoms or the possibility of being pregnant, you may call the APA toll-free helpline at 1-800-672-2296, or search locally by your zip code below.

What are the most common first signs of pregnancy? In a poll conducted by the American Pregnancy Association, the most commonly reported first symptoms of pregnancy included:

  • 29% of women surveyed reported a missed period as their first pregnancy symptom
  • 25% indicated that nausea was the first sign of pregnancy
  • 17% reported that a change in their breasts was the initial symptom of pregnancy

While implantation bleeding is often considered the first pregnancy symptom, the survey conducted by the American Pregnancy Association revealed that only 3% of women identified implantation bleeding as their first sign of pregnancy.

Each of your symptoms of pregnancy below could be explained by other causes. What else could they be?

Spotting or light bleeding: If pregnant, this symptom is usually associated with implantation bleeding and is considered one of the earliest signs of pregnancy. The embryo usually implants to the uterine between 6 to 12 days after conception. Some women will experience spotting as well as cramping. Other women do not even notice implantation bleeding or cramping, so don’t worry if you are trying to get pregnant and don’t experience these symptoms; you could still be pregnant.

When this implantation occurs, light bleeding or spotting is perfectly normal. This symptom is sometimes accompanied by light cramping. Many women will conceive and not notice any implantation bleeding, so do not worry if you are trying to get pregnant and do not see this symptom, you could still be pregnant.

Missed period: A delayed or missed period is the most common pregnancy symptom leading a woman to test for pregnancy. When you become pregnant, your next period should be missed.

Is it possible to be pregnant and still have a period? Some women can bleed while they are pregnant, but typically this bleeding will be shorter or lighter than a normal period. A missed period can be a symptom of pregnancy caused by something else.

Nausea or morning sickness: Nausea or morning sickness is the second most commonly reported first sign of pregnancy. Experienced to some degree by most expecting women, nausea typically shows up between 2 to 8 weeks after conception.

Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) is a serious condition that can lead to diabetic coma (passing out for a long time) or even death.

When your cells don't get the glucose they need for energy, your body begins to burn fat for energy, which produces ketones. Ketones are chemicals that the body creates when it breaks down fat to use for energy. The body does this when it doesn’t have enough insulin to use glucose, the body’s normal source of energy. When ketones build up in the blood, they make it more acidic. They are a warning sign that your diabetes is out of control or that you are getting sick.

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.

More than 100 Mohave County potential flu cases pending state lab examination from past two weeks

Arizona is widespread with confirmed influenza cases and there are more than 100 Mohave County reports of potential flu cases pending for the past two weeks, officials said Thursday.

Arizona Department of Health Services bumped up the state’s level of reported flu cases from regional to widespread for the week of Dec. 30 through Jan. 5. The state’s most up-to-date numbers have confirmed flu cases in 14 of the state’s 15 counties. La Paz is the only county without a confirmed case.

Only nine flu cases have been confirmed so far in Mohave County since the flu season began Sept. 30. But Anna Scherzer, epidemiologist with Mohave County Department of Public Health, said she anticipates that most of the pending flu case reports will be confirmed by the state’s lab.

Flu symptoms include: fever or feeling feverish/chills, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, muscle or body aches, headaches and fatigue.

Arizona is not alone in increased influenza cases — 41 other states reported widespread activity last week, according to a state Department of Health Services press release.

Havasu Regional Medical Center and the local Walgreens, 25 S. Lake Havasu Ave., don’t exactly need the state’s Department of Public Health’s lab to confirm that increased numbers of local residents have been sick.

The hospital has seen “a slight increase in patients with flu-like symptoms in our emergency department,” said Carol Dumais, hospital spokeswoman in an email. “We are aware of influenza trends around the state and across the country, and are preparing accordingly.”

A few hundred flu shots have been given out at Walgreens in recent days since details of widespread influenza around the country have been reported, said Wayne Cohen, pharmacy manager of the local Walgreens. Also, sales of Tamiflu, a drug prescribed for the treatment of flu infections, recently has increased as well, he added.

With news in the past week or so of influenza becoming widespread around the country, Cohen said he’s pleased that people have taken the information seriously.

A true reflection of flu cases always is difficult to get a handle on, Scherzer said.

“We don’t always get good counts on (influenza),” Scherzer said. The problem is that it’s up to the facilities, doctors, schools and daycares to report potential flu cases, she said. And after that, the state’s lab tests the flu to confirm it, she added.

The state lab’s activity is important to learn what types of influenza are circulating, Scherzer said. It helps decide what strain of influenza needs to be put in the next year’s vaccine, she added.

Scherzer said the vaccine continues to be well-matched with the flu strain that currently is circulating.

This flu season (Sept. 30, 2012 to Sept. 28, 2013) started earlier than the previous year with the first confirmed case at the end of October, Scherzer said. Last flu season, the first confirmed case was in December and the flu season topped out in mid-February, she added.

Last year, Mohave County reported flu cases through mid-April, Scherzer said.

Hello. My daughter will be 2 next month. She has been terribly sick. I have taken her to the doctor 2 times. I was told that she could have influenza. My concern is that her temperature keeps peeking to 103.0+ during the day and 104.1+ in the night. I have been alternating Tylenol and Motrin every 3-4 hours, but it doesn’t seem to help much. I have also been giving her luke warm baths to bring the temp down. I’m scared that during the night her temp could peak and I won’t know. Could this make her have seizures or do damage long term? When is it necessary to take her to the emergency room? What else could I do to help her? Am I being an overly scared or is this normal when kids get the flu?

Hi M.-
You have every right to be worried. If her temp keeps spiking like that you probably should consult her pediatrician. So many times we are so worried that we forget to mention the important small stuff. Have you tried giving her popsicles to keep her temp down and keeping her hydrated?

get that little girl in the hospital, admit her, have them take stool samples and blood tests. NOW. there is no reason to wait, it is serious.

Malignant mesothelioma generally develops in people over the age of sixty five and usually occurs in the chest cavity, arising in the pleura in sixty five to seventy percent of all cases. The other predominant location for mesothelioma cancer cases is the peritoneal lining of the organs in the abdominal cavity. It may also affect the pericardial lining of the heart, in rare cases.

  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest pain
  • Tightness in the chest
  • Persistent cough
  • Weight Loss
  • Fatigue

Pleural effusion is also a common development with mesothelioma. This condition is caused by accumulation of excess fluid in the space between the lungs and the chest wall or diaphragm. It can be the cause of chest pain and reduced breathing capacity.

Peritoneal mesothelioma is characterized by abdominal swelling and pain. This symptom can also be the result of fluid accumulation – in this case, within the abdominal cavity. Thickening of the peritoneal tissue can lead to additional symptoms:

  • Swelling
  • Weight loss
  • Nausea
  • Obstructed bowels
  • Anemia
  • Fever and/or night sweats

If you or someone you love is experiencing any symptoms of asbestos exposure, you should visit your doctor right away.

According to many experts, the symptoms of CRPS (sometimes called RSD) often progress in three stages—acute, dystrophic, and atrophic. The primary symptoms of CRPS is continuous, severe pain that gets worse over time, rather than better, and is not in proportion to the injury—if trauma has occurred. Usually CRPS affects one extremity (e.g., arm, leg, hand, foot).

The acute stage occurs during the first 1–3 months and may include

  • burning pain
  • swelling
  • increased sensitivity to touch
  • increased hair and nail growth in the affected region
  • joint pain
  • color and temperature changes

The dystrophic stage may involve constant pain and swelling. The affected limb may feel cool to the touch and appear bluish in color. Muscle stiffness, wasting of the muscles (atrophy) and early bone loss (osteoporosis) also may occur. This stage usually develops 3–6 months after onset of the disorder.

During the atrophic stage, the skin becomes cool and shiny, increased muscle stiffness and weakness occur, and symptoms may spread to another limb. At this stage, changes to the skin and bone usually are permanent.

Characteristic signs and symptoms of sympathetic nervous system involvement include the following:

  • Burning pain
  • Extreme sensitivity to touch
  • Skin color changes (red or bluish)
  • Skin temperature changes (hot or cold)

Pain caused by RSD/CRPS usually in not proportionate to the degree of injury. It can be triggered by disuse of the affected limb or by stress and can be spontaneous or constant.

Symptoms associated with an immune reaction include:

  • Joint pain
  • Redness
  • Swelling (edema)
  • Frequent infections

Die Influenza tritt besonders in der kalten Jahreszeit auf und kann große Teile der Bevölkerung betreffen. Sie kann aber auch außerhalb der typischen Grippezeit auftreten. Die Grippe kann vor allem für alte und geschwächte Menschen gefährlich werden, im schlimmsten Fall sogar tödlich verlaufen. Wenn sehr viele Menschen einer bestimmten Region von der Grippe befallen sind, spricht man von einer Grippe-Epidemie. Wenn weltweit sehr viele Menschen an der Grippe erkrankt sind, spricht man von einer Grippe-Pandemie.

Die Influenza wird oft unterschätzt. Jedes Jahr kursieren neue Viren - der Impfstoff der heurigen Saison gilt als sehr wirksam.

Wie erfolgt die Ansteckung mit dem Grippevirus?

Das Virus wird hauptsächlich durch Tröpfcheninfektion übertragen, also beim Husten, Niesen oder Sprechen. Auch durch Händeschütteln, Türklinken, Geldscheine u.ä. (Schmier- und Kontaktinfektion) können Grippeviren übertragen werden. Eintrittspforten sind letztendlich die Schleimhäute der Atemwege. Nach erfolgter Infektion zeigen sich innerhalb von ein bis drei Tagen die ersten Beschwerden.

Welche Symptome treten bei der Grippe auf?

  • Plötzlich einsetzendes Fieber (38-40°C)
  • Schüttelfrost
  • Kopfschmerzen
  • Extreme Müdigkeit
  • Trockener Husten
  • Geröteter Rachen
  • Verstopfte Nase
  • Muskel- und Gliederschmerzen
  • In seltenen Fällen auch Übelkeit, Erbrechen und Durchfall

Welche Therapie steht bei der Influenza zur Verfügung?

Für die spezifische Therapie stehen schon seit längeren die Neuraminidasehemmer (Zanamivir, Oseltamivir) zur Verfügung, die gegen alle Typen des Influenza-Virus gleichermaßen wirksam sind. Diese gut verträglichen Medikamente hemmen ein Enzym des Virus, die so genannte Neuraminidase, wodurch die Virus-Freisetzung aus infizierten Zellen und damit die weitere Vermehrung des Erregers blockiert werden.

Für diese Medikamenten-Gruppe wurde gezeigt, dass sie bei einer Verabreichung innerhalb der ersten 48 Stunden nach Krankheitsbeginn die Intensität und Dauer der Symptome vermindern und die Häufigkeit von Komplikationen signifikant reduzieren. Für die Behandlung einer bereits ausgebrochenen Grippe soll das Medikament zwei Mal täglich über fünf Tage eingenommen werden.

  • Trinken Sie reichlich, auf Grund des Fiebers verliert man viel Flüssigkeit.
  • Hüten Sie das Bett und schlafen Sie viel.
  • Vermeiden Sie es, zu rauchen und Alkohol zu trinken.
  • Bleiben Sie zu Hause und schonen Sie sich, bis die Krankheit vorüber ist.

Welche Komplikationen können auftreten?

Vor allem bei älteren und chronisch kranken Personen, Menschen mit geschwächter Immunabwehr sowie Kleinkindern (siehe Risikogruppen) kann eine Grippe-Erkrankung zu ernsthaften, mitunter lebensbedrohlichen Komplikationen führen, die auch durch Zweitinfektionen mit Bakterien verursacht werden können. Dazu zählen:

Influenzaviren haben die Eigenschaft, sich durch Mutation kontinuierlich zu verändern (sog. Antigen-Drift). Daher bietet eine Influenza-Impfung nur einen zeitlich begrenzten Schutz. Verschiedene Influenza-A-Viren können zudem untereinander genetische Information austauschen (sog. Antigen-Shift), was zu völlig neuen Virustypen führen kann. Wenn diese stark veränderten Virusvarianten die Fähigkeit erlangen, effizient von Mensch zu Mensch übertragen zu werden, kann es zu ausgedehnten Epidemien und letztlich zu einer Pandemie (weltweite Epidemie) kommen, wie dies 1918/1919 (Spanische Grippe), 1957 (Asiatische Grippe),1968 (Hongkong-Grippe) und zuletzt 2009 (Schweinegrippe) der Fall war.

Üblicherweise kommt es einmal im Jahr - meist in der kalten Jahreszeit - zu einem wellenartigen Anstieg der Grippe-Erkrankungen. Eine solche Epidemie beginnt charakteristischerweise abrupt, erreicht nach etwa drei Wochen ihren Höhepunkt und dauert schließlich etwa sechs bis acht Wochen an, manchmal auch etwas länger.

Im Durchschnitt registriert beispielsweise das Informationssystem der Gemeinde Wien in der kalten Jahreszeit etwa bis zu 10.000 Neuerkrankungen an Grippe bzw. grippalen Infekten pro Woche. Wenn die Erkrankungsfälle einen Wert von 11.000 überschreiten, kann man von einer beginnenden Grippewelle bzw. -epidemie ausgehen. Virologische Untersuchungen einzelner Patienten (Individualdiagnostik) liefern schließlich die Bestätigung dieser Annahme. Meist sind zunächst hauptsächlich Kinder betroffen, da sich das Virus in Kindergärten und Schulen optimal verbreiten kann.

  • Antibiotika sind gegen das Influenza-Virus wirkungslos, ihre Anwendung ist nur bei einer bakteriellen Zweitinfektion sinnvoll.
  • Als Infizierte/r können Sie noch vor Auftreten der Beschwerden andere Menschen anstecken.
  • Etwa eine Woche nach Krankheitsbeginn ist die Infektionsgefahr für andere vorbei.
  • Geben sie Kindern bei einer Grippe KEINE Acetylsalizylsäure-haltigen Medikamente (z.B. Aspirin), da dadurch ein Reye-Syndrom (schwerwiegende Erkrankung) ausgelöst werden kann!

    Call your health care provider at once if you experience the following conditions:

    • Your urine tests show high levels of ketones.
    • Your urine tests show high levels of ketones and your blood glucose level is high.
    • Your urine tests show high levels of ketones and you have vomited more than twice in four hours.

    Do NOT exercise when your urine tests show ketones and your blood glucose is high. High levels of ketones and high blood glucose levels can mean your diabetes is out of control. Check with your health care provider about how to handle this situation.

    Here are three basic reasons for moderate or large amounts of ketones:

    • Not enough insulin
      Maybe you did not inject enough insulin. Or your body could need more insulin than usual because of illness.
    • Not enough food
      When you're sick, you often don't feel like eating, sometimes resulting in high ketone levels. High levels may also occur when you miss a meal.
    • Insulin reaction (low blood glucose)
      If testing shows high ketone levels in the morning, you may have had an insulin reaction while asleep.

    Welche Folgen eine Grippe hat, hängt von der körperlichen Verfassung der Erkrankten, aber auch von der Aggressivität der Viren ab. In manchen Jahren hat eine Grippewelle kaum Einfluss auf die allgemeine Sterblichkeit, in anderen fordert sie zahlreiche Todesopfer. So starben im Grippewinter 2012/2013 in Deutschland etwa 20.000 Menschen an den Folgen einer Grippeinfektion.

    Die ersten Symptome einer Influenza treten meist ein bis zwei Tage nach der Ansteckung mit Grippeviren auf. Typische Krankheitszeichen sind hohes Fieber, Kopf-, Gelenk- und Muskelschmerzen, Schüttelfrost und Schweißausbrüche, unproduktiver Husten, Appetitlosigkeit, ein starkes Krankheitsgefühl sowie Erschöpfung. Damit sind die Symptome einer Influenza vor allem bei milden Krankheitsverläufen von anderen Erkältungskrankheiten nur schwer zu unterscheiden. Die in der Regel harmlosen grippalen Infekte beruhen zwar ebenfalls auf einer Virusinfektion, haben aber ebenso wie die sogenannte "Magen-Darm-Grippe" mit der "echten" Grippe jedoch nichts zu tun.

    Merkmale einer Influenza, die sie von grippalen Infekten unterscheidet und die korrekte Behandlung bestimmen:

    • Plötzlicher Beginn der Krankheit Eine "echte" Grippe beginnt fast immer plötzlich und scheinbar ohne Übergang von völliger Gesundheit. Eine Erkältungskrankheit entwickelt sich dagegen langsam und teilweise über mehrere Tage hinweg.
    • Hohes Fieber Zu den typischen Symptomen einer Influenza gehört Fieber über 38,5 Grad Celsius, bei schweren Krankheitsverläufen kann es bis 41 Grad Celsius steigen. Grippale Infekte werden meist nur von mäßig erhöhter Temperatur begleitet.
    • Unterschiedliche Gewichtung der Krankheitszeichen Zwar treten bei einer Virusgrippe auch Erkältungssymptome auf, jedoch steht das allgemeine Krankheitsgefühl im Vordergrund. Kopf- und Gliederschmerzen sind in der Regel stärker ausgeprägt als bei einer einfachen Erkältung.
    • Krankheitsdauer Ein grippaler Infekt ist nach wenigen Tagen ausgestanden. Bei einer "echten" Grippe sind die Erkrankten meist erst nach fünf bis sieben Tagen fieberfrei, an die sich noch eine längere Erholungs- und Genesungsperiode anschließt.

    In 80 Prozent der Fälle verläuft die Krankheit leicht bis mittelschwer. Zu Komplikationen führt oft weniger die Influenza selbst, sondern bakterielle Zweit- und Superinfektionen, die durch die Schleimhautschädigungen begünstigt werden. Mögliche Komplikationen sind Entzündungen der Lunge, des Gehirns, des Herzens und der Skelettmuskulatur. Patienten mit schwerwiegenden Vorerkrankungen und ohne - zum Teil aus medizinischen Gründen gar nicht möglichem Impfschutz - tragen hierfür ein besonders hohes Risiko. Für Menschen mit einem gesunden Körper und einem intakten Immunsystem stellt eine Influenza normalerweise jedoch kein gefährliches oder gar lebensbedrohliches Ereignis dar.

    Durch eine Laboruntersuchung von Blut oder Speichel kann der Arzt eine Influenza sicher diagnostizieren. Allerdings sind solche Tests nicht der Regelfall, sondern werden vor allem dann vorgenommen, wenn ein Risiko für einen besonders schweren Krankheitsverlauf besteht.

    Außerdem gibt es die Möglichkeit des Schnell-Tests mittels eines Nasenabstrichs, der bei Erwachsenen jedoch nicht besonders sicher ist. Da Ärzte wissen, ob eine Grippewelle im Anzug ist oder sich regional bereits ausgebreitet hat, ist eine weitgehend sichere Diagnose meist auch ohne Labortests möglich, woraufhin bestimmte Mittel gegen Influenza verschrieben werden können.

    Bei schweren Krankheitsbildern, dem Verdacht auf eine Lungenentzündung oder bekannten Lungenerkrankungen wird durch den Arzt häufig eine Röntgenaufnahme des Brustkorbs angeordnet.

    Die Grippe, auch Influenza genannt, ist eine plötzlich auftretende, fieberhafte Viruserkrankung. Sie entsteht durch verschiedene Grippeviren und wird oft mit einer gewöhnlichen Erkältung verwechselt. Da sie im Winter weitaus häufiger vorkommt, wird sie auch "saisonale Grippe" genannt. Ihr Verlauf ist sehr unterschiedlich und kann in bei schwerer Erkrankung sogar tödlich enden.

    Heißer Tee: Trinken Sie Tee! Dieser hat eine natürliche, heilende Wirkung auf den Körper. Je nachdem, welcher Tee getrunken wird, lassen sich verschiedene Effekte beobachten. Kamillentee wirkt entzündungshemmend, Ingwertee lindert Schmerzen, Lindenblüten und Holunderblütentee sind schweißtreibend. Menschen, die keinen Tee mögen, können auf eine heiße Zitrone zurückgreifen und sich damit von innen heraus wärmen.

    Raumklima: Sorgen Sie für eine Raumtemperatur von etwa 20 Grad und vergessen Sie nicht regelmäßig zu lüften! Erholen Sie sich nicht bei zu trockener Luft. Um die Luftfeuchtigkeit im Raum zu erhöhen, können Schalen mit Wasser über der Heizung oder ein Luftbefeuchter sinnvoll sein.

    Ruhe: Gönnen Sie sich ausreichend Ruhe und Erholung! Sie benötigen all Ihre Kräfte, um Krankheitserreger zu bekämpfen. Machen Sie es sich bequem und schonen Sie sich. Auch nach Abklingen der Symptome, sollten Sie es ruhig angehen lassen, um einen Rückfall zu vermeiden.

    Warme Suppe: Essen Sie warme Hühnersuppe! Das in Hühnersuppe enthaltene Eiweiß (Cystein) als auch das enthaltene Zink wirken entzündungshemmend und dämmen die Infektion ebenso wie ein Medikament ein. Würzen Sie die Brühe zusätzlich mit Knoblauch, Chili, Salz und Zitronengras.

    Wasser trinken: Trinken Sie zwei Liter Wasser am Tag, um einer Dehydrierung vorzubeugen! Ihr Körper verliert durch das Schwitzen und Fieber sehr viel Flüssigkeit. Holen Sie diese durch Wasser und Tee wieder rein.

    Wadenwickel: Nutzen Sie Wadenwickel! Um das Fieber zu senken, haben sich kalte Wadenwickel über Jahre bewährt. Tränken Sie ein Tuch in zimmerwarmes Wasser und wickeln Sie es um Ihre Waden. Um das nasse Tuch legen Sie daraufhin ein trockenes und entfernen beide nach etwa 15 Minuten.

    Gurgeln: Gurgeln Sie mit einer Salzlösung, Kamillentee oder Salbeitee, um Halsschmerzen zu lindern! Des Weiteren kann ein Kartoffel- oder Quarkwickel hilfreich sein.

    Husten lindern: Trinken Sie heißen Tee und lutschen Bonbons um Ihren Husten zu lindern! Auch ein bis zwei Teelöffel Zwiebelsirup oder –saft können Linderung bei Husten verschaffen.

    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).
