Treatment: infected individuals need to be on bed rest and consume plenty of fluids to treat the flu (3). In some cases antiviral medications may be necessary, such as oseltamivir (Tamiflu) is an oral medication or zanamivir (Relenza) which is inhaled similar to an asthma inhaler to combat the virus (3).

The prevention and control of influenza in facilities include the following: annual influenza vaccination of patients and health care personnel, implementation Droplet Precautions for infected individuals, surveillance and influenza testing for new illness and or cases, restriction of ill visitors and personnel, rapid administration of influenza antiviral medications for treatment and prevention during outbreaks, and respirator hygiene/cough etiquette.

Prevention/ Vaccine info, new trials:

Prevention: Vaccination is said to be the best way to prevent the flu virus. Proper hand hygiene (washing hands) and using antimicrobial soap if possible.

Types or vaccines:

1. The “flu shot” – is an inactivated vaccine (it contains the killed flu virus) that is administrated by injection usually in the arm (10). The flu shot is approved for use in people older than 6 months, including healthy people and people with chronic medical conditions (5).

2. The nasal-spray flu vaccine – is a vaccine made with live, or weakened flu viruses that do not cause the flu (sometimes called LAIV for “Live Attenuated Influenza Vaccine”) (10). LAIV is approved for use in healthy people 2 years to 49 years of age who are not pregnant (5).

*The 2008-2009 Influenza virus vaccine is Fluzone (trade name). Fluzone vaccine is indicated in persons 6 months older for active immunization against influenza virus type A and B contained in the vaccine (9). Some side affects of the Fluzone are localized soreness, pain, swelling fever, and malaise and myalgia, which last up to 2 days (9).

Current outbreaks/ Cases locally (with incidence):

Most of the cases reported for influenza (flu) in Texas for the week ending May 17, 2008 were sporadic. Sporadic activity indicates that isolated reports of laboratory confirmed influenza along with influenza like illness (ILI) have been reported (1).

As of May 2009 there have been no confirmed cases of influenza in the state of Texas.

**Note that this study is only on the Human seasonal Flu only.

Das früher oft bei Grippe zur Behandlung eingesetzte Virostatikum namens Amantadin gehört nicht zu den Neuraminidasehemmern, sondern zu den zyklischen Aminen und ist nur gegen Influenza-A-Virusinfektionen wirksam. Amantadin kann die Dauer von Fieber um einen Tag verkürzen. Als Grippemittel wenden Ärzte Amantadin allerdings heute praktisch nicht mehr an, denn:

  • Zum einen verursacht Amantadin nicht unerhebliche Nebenwirkungen (z.B. Durchfall, Depression, epileptische Anfälle ),
  • zum anderen entwickeln die Grippeviren schnell eine Widerstandsfähigkeit (Resistenz) dagegen.

Antibiotika wirken nur gegen Bakterien. Bei der virusbedingten Grippe ist eine Behandlung mit Antibiotika also wirkungslos. Wenn jedoch neben der Influenza zusätzlich eine Infektion mit Bakterien (sog. Zweitinfektion oder Superinfektion) entsteht, ist es notwendig, diese mit Antibiotika zu behandeln.

Die bei Erwachsenen gegen Grippe eingesetzte Behandlung unterscheidet sich in einem wichtigen Punkt von der Behandlung bei Kindern: Kinder mit Virus-Infekten wie einer Influenza dürfen keinesfalls Salicylate (wie ASS o.Ä.) erhalten, da sie hierdurch ein Reye-Syndrom entwickeln können.

Das Reye-Syndrom ist eine lebensbedrohliche Erkrankung, in deren Verlauf es zu Hirn- und Leberschäden kommt. Während man die Erkrankung im Frühstadium noch heilen kann, führt sie voll entwickelt in etwa 70 Prozent der Fälle zum Tod. Wenn Ihr Kind dauerhaft Salicylate einnimmt, ist es deshalb wichtig, dass Sie es regelmäßig gegen Grippe impfen lassen.

Bei einer Grippe (Influenza) kann der Verlauf sehr unterschiedlich sein: Es sind milde und unkomplizierte, aber auch schwerwiegende Fälle von Virusgrippe mit tödlichen Ausgang möglich.

Bei einer Grippe mit typischem Verlauf treten die ersten Beschwerden ein bis fünf Tage nach der Infektion mit dem Grippevirus auf. Erstes Anzeichen für die Virusgrippe ist oft ein plötzliches und hohes Fieber. Überwiegend sind die Betroffenen nach etwa sechs Tagen wieder fieberfrei. Jedoch können andere Symptome der Influenza – und zwar Husten, Schnupfen (Rhinitis) sowie ein allgemeines Schwächegefühl – noch ein bis zwei Wochen länger dauern.

Die bei Influenza entstehende Schleimhautschädigung kann Infektionen mit Bakterien nach sich ziehen, die unter Umständen zu Komplikationen führen. Um diese zu vermeiden, ist es wichtig, die Bakterieninfektion rechtzeitig zu behandeln. Wenn das gelingt, ist die Grippe nach einer Dauer von etwa ein bis zwei Wochen ausgestanden.

Größtenteils entwickeln sich bei einer Grippe im weiteren Verlauf dann Komplikationen, wenn zusätzlich bakterielle Infektionen hinzukommen. Verantwortlich für diese bei Influenza relativ häufigen Zweitinfektionen sind vor allem folgende Bakterien:

Nachfolgend kann es durch die Bakterien-Infektion zu einer Lungenentzündung, einer Mittelohrentzündung (Otitis media) oder einer Entzündung des Herzmuskels kommen. Dies kann weitere Komplikationen mit sich bringen. So kann beispielsweise eine gleichzeitig mit der Grippe auftretende Lungenentzündung dazu führen, dass Lungenabszesse entstehen, die wiederum schwere Erkrankungen des Herz-Kreislauf-Systems auslösen können. Möglich sind zum Beispiel:

Wie sich bakterielle Zweitinfektionen bei einer Grippe auswirken, hängt in starkem Maße vom Gesundheitszustand der Betroffenen ab. Ein besonders hohes Risiko für eine schwer verlaufende Influenza mit Komplikationen haben:

  • Kleinkinder
  • ältere Menschen
  • Frauen während der Schwangerschaft
  • Menschen mit geschwächter Immunabwehr
  • Menschen mit chronischen Atemwegserkrankungen

In case your baby is suffering from a high grade fever it might point to the fact that he/she is suffering from bacteremia. Bacteremia is a health condition in which bacteria are present in the blood of the baby.

Urinary Tract Infection is a bacterial infection that can attack any portion of the urinary tract from kidneys to bladder and from ureters to urethra. A difficulty in urinating, nausea and fever are some of the symptoms that are associated with UTI.

Meningitis is caused by the inflammation of meninges which is a membrane that surrounds the brain and shields brain from outside influences. This disease is caused by either a bacterial or a viral infection. Bacterial infection is critical and can be life threatening whereas viral infection is not that severe. Most cases of meningitis are caused by viral infections and other symptoms of the condition are severe headache and a rigid neck.

Can I Use Fever-Reducing Medicine for Toddler Fever No Other Symptoms?

Whenever your child is suffering, you want to make sure that you do something urgently to relieve the symptoms at least. In case your baby is suffering from fever you can get him over the counter fever medicine to relieve his/her fever. However, there are a few things that you must consider before buying these medicines.

  • The medicine cannot completely eliminate fever. You must realize that medications are just going to make your child feel better and comfortable. Acetaminophen and ibuprofen would not in any way cure your kids’ health issue. They would only bring down your kid’s temperature by one or two degrees, but would not completely eliminate fever. The reason is because fever is in fact a tool used by the body to fight infection because germs are comfortable at normal body temperature and die as temperature increases.
  • Choose the suitable fever reliever. You must choose the medicine wisely for your kid. In case your baby is not more than 6 months you must not give ibuprofen to your baby, though ibuprofen is known to bring fever down much quickly. Acetaminophen is approved for such babies but it has been known to cause stomach problems for babies with delicate stomachs.
  • Stick with one fever reliever. Doctors suggest that one should not mix medicine because it can result in over medication of your child. The two medicines mostly mixed are acetaminophen and ibuprofen which might be beneficial in decreasing your kids’ fever quicker, but is NOT recommended by experts.
  • Read the instruction carefully. Make sure that while you are giving medicine to your child, read the labels cautiously. Also make sure that the dose you give your baby is according to the weight of your baby. Most medicines contain a dropper to give medicine to babies. The dropper of one medicine should not be used to administer dosage of another medicine.

You must take your baby to the doctor immediately if he/she is less than 2 months old. In case the baby is more than 2 months old, he/she should be taken to the physician immediately if the kid is lethargic and appears to be very ill. If your baby is finding it difficult to breathe or is bleeding from the skin, it is a sign that you must take your toddler to the doctor as soon as possible. Headache, neck stiffening or confusion are also warning signs in a baby more than 2 months old and in such a circumstance the baby should be taken to the physician. Apart from these conditions, kids should be taken to the hospital in case the fever continues for more than five days or if fever rises above 102.2 °F.

Die Grippe (Influenza) ist eine schwere Atemwegserkrankung, die durch Viren hervorgerufen wird. Grippe ist sehr ansteckend. Besonders in den Wintermonaten erkranken viele Menschen. Oft wird aber eine einfache Erkältung als Grippe verkannt, obwohl die Unterschiede sehr groß sind. Lesen Sie hier, welche Symptome für eine Grippe typisch sind und wie Sie sich schützen können!

  • Symptome: plötzlich einsetzendes Fieber mit Schüttelfrost, Knochenschmerzen, Reizhusten, Halsschmerzen, Kopfschmerzen, manchmal Magen-Darm-Beschwerden
  • Ansteckung: über feinste Tröpfchen in der Atemluft, Berührung von kontaminierten Gegenständen und Flächen
  • Erreger: Influenza-A- und B-Viren, die sich schnell verändern können (daher kein bleibender Immunschutz)
  • Vorbeugung: Impfung (für Risikogruppen), Kontakt mit Infizierten meiden, regelmäßiges Händewaschen
  • Behandlung: nur symptomatisch mit Schmerz- und Fiebermedikamenten (Ibuprofen, Paracetamol), Bettruhe, viel trinken
  • Komplikationen:Lungenentzündung, Nasennebenhöhlenentzündung, Mittelohrentzündung, Herzmuskelentzündung, Hirnhautentzündung (Meningitis)

Wer mit Husten, Schnupfen und Fieber im Bett liegt, fragt sich häufig, ob ihn eine Grippe oder eine Erkältung (grippaler Infekt) plagt. Das wichtigste Unterscheidungskriterium: Während es einem bei einer Erkältung langsam schlechter geht, überfällt einen die Grippe schlagartig.

Many opportunistic infections associated with AIDS cause serious illness. Some may be prevented. Below is a list of infections and how they affect the body.

Cryptoccoccal Menigitis — This is a yeast-like fungus infection that usually involves the brain and lungs, although it can affect almost any organ. The fungus that causes this condition is found in soil throughout the world. It is most common in soil contaminated by bird droppings. This disease most often occurs when a person's CD4+ T cell count falls below 100 cells per cubic millimeter of blood.

HIV-related Encephalopathy — Encephalopathy is a term for diseases that alter brain function or structure, leading to problems with cognitive function, or mental processes, and memory. In people with HIV and AIDS, encephalopathy is usually caused by an infectious agent, such as a bacteria, virus or prion.

Encephalopathy most often occurs when a person's CD4+T cell count falls below 50 cells per cubic millimeter of blood. Toxoplasma-seropositive patients who have a CD4+T cell count of less than 100 cells per cubic millimeter of blood should be treated with prophylaxis to prevent developing encephalopathy.

Progressive Multifocal Leukoencephalopathy (PML) — Progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy is a rare disorder of the nervous system caused by a common human polyomavirus, JC virus. It leads to the destruction of the myelin sheath that covers nerve cells. The myelin sheath is the fatty covering that acts as an insulator on nerve fibers in the brain. Symptoms include mental deterioration, vision loss, speech disturbances, inability to coordinate movements, paralysis and ultimately coma. In rare cases, seizures may occur.

This disease can occur when the CD4+T cell count falls below 200 cells per cubic millimeter of blood.

Toxoplasmosis — This condition occurs when a parasite infects the brain. Symptoms include confusion or delusional behavior, severe headaches, fever, seizures and coma. It can affect the eye, causing eye pain and reduced vision.

Toxoplasmosis most likely occurs when the CD4+ T cell count falls below 100 cells per cubic millimeter of blood. Preventative treatment — usually with trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole, also called Septra and Bactrim — may be administered when the CD4+ T cell count falls below 100 cells per cubic millimeter of blood.

Cytomegalovirus (CMV) — Although this virus can affect the entire body, it commonly affects the eye's retina, causing blurry vision and in severe cases, blindness. Other common symptoms include chronic diarrhea and nerve problems. It is most likely to occur when a person’s CD4+ T cell count falls below 100 cells per cubic millimeter of blood.

Cryptosporidiosis — This is a parasite that can cause chronic diarrhea. Other symptoms include stomach cramps, nausea, fatigue, weight loss, appetite loss, vomiting and dehydration.

This infection is difficult to treat and there is no definitive effective treatment. Symptom control and treatment of HIV are necessary.

Cytomegalovirus — Although this virus can affect the entire body, it commonly occurs in the stomach, causing fever, diarrhea and stomach pain. It most likely occurs when the CD4+ T cell count falls below 50 cells per cubic millimeter of blood.

Mycobacterium Avium Complex — This is a bacterial infection that can cause persistent fever, night sweats, fatigue, weight loss, anemia, abdominal pain, dizziness, diarrhea and weakness. The bacteria that cause this infection is found in water, dust, soil and bird droppings.

This disease most likely occurs when the CD4+T cell count falls below 50 cells per cubic millimeter of blood. Preventive treatment, usually with azithromycin, is administered when CD4+ T cells are less than 50 cells per cubic millimeter of blood.

Candidiasis — Candidiasis is an infection caused by the candida fungi. Also known as a yeast infection, it's the most common HIV-related fungus infection. It can affect the entire body, but most commonly occurs in the mouth, called thrush, or vagina. An overgrowth of yeast in the vagina can cause irritation, itching, burning and thick white discharge.

Tamiflu is a prescription medicine used to treat the flu (influenza) in people 2 weeks of age and older who have had flu symptoms for no more than 2 days. Tamiflu can also reduce the chance of getting the flu in people 1 year and older.

Tamiflu does not prevent bacterial infections that may happen with the flu.

  • Influenza antiviral prescription drugs can be used to treat influenza or to prevent influenza.
  • Oseltamivir, zanamivir, and peramivir are chemically related antiviral medications known as neuraminidase inhibitors that have activity against both influenza A and B viruses.

The following are the CDC recommended antiviral medications for the treatment of influenza (flu) for the 2016-2017 season are as follows: oral oseltamivir (Tamiflu), inhaled zanamivir (Relenza), and intravenous peramivir (Rapivab). See Table 1 below for details about utilizing these drugs in adults and children.

Over-the-counter medications that may help reduce symptoms of congestion (decongestants), coughing (cough medicine), and dehydration include diphenhydramine (Benadryl), acetaminophen (Tylenol), NSAIDs (Advil, Motrin, Aleve), guaifenesin (Mucinex), dextromethorphan (Delsym), pseudoephedrine (Sudafed), and oral fluids. Aspirin may be used in adults but not in children.

Antibiotics treat bacterial infections, not viral illnesses like the flu.

Individuals with the flu may also benefit from some additional bed rest, throat lozenges, and possibly nasal irrigation; drinking fluids may help prevent symptoms of dehydration (for example, dry mucus membranes and decreased urination).

While a person has the flu, good nutrition can help the recovery process. Anyone with the flu needs to avoid dehydration, soothe sore throat and/or upset stomach, and have a good protein intake. Dehydration can be avoided by adequate fluid intake such as juices (orange, cranberry, grapefruit, tomato, grape, and others). Sore throat and upset stomach may be relieved by broths or warm soups (chicken, vegetable, or beef) and plain crackers, toast, and ginger tea or noncarbonated ginger ale. Scrambled eggs, yogurt, and/or protein drinks are good protein sources. In addition, bananas, rice, and applesauce are food that are often recommended for those with an upset stomach. This list is not exhaustive but should provide a balanced approach to help speed recovery from the flu.

When should a person go to the emergency department for the flu?

The CDC urges people to seek emergency medical care for a sick child with any of these flu effects (symptoms or signs):

  1. Fast breathing or trouble breathing (shortness of breath)
  2. Bluish or gray skin color
  3. Not drinking enough fluids
  4. Severe or persistent vomiting
  5. Not waking up or not interacting
  6. Being so irritable that the child does not want to be held
  7. Flu-like symptoms improve but then return with fever and cough

The following is the CDC's list of symptoms that should trigger emergency medical care for adults:

  1. Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
  2. Pain or pressure in the chest or abdomen
  3. Sudden dizziness
  4. Confusion
  5. Severe or persistent vomiting
  6. Flu-like symptoms improve but then return with fever and worse cough
  7. Having a high fever for more than three days is another danger sign, according to the WHO, so the CDC has also included this as another serious symptom.

Who should receive the flu vaccine, and who has the highest risk factors? When should someone get the flu shot?

In the United States, the flu season usually occurs from about November until April. Officials have decided each new flu season will start each year on Oct. 4. Typically, activity is very low until December, and peak activity most often occurs between January and March. Ideally, the conventional flu vaccine should be administered between September and mid-November. Flu season typically occurs between October and May. It takes about one to two weeks after vaccination for antibodies against influenza to develop and provide protection. The CDC has published a summary list of their current recommendations of who should get the current vaccine:

Summary of CDC influenza vaccination recommendations for 2017-2018

Routine annual influenza vaccination of all people aged ≥ 6 months without contraindications continues to be recommended. No preferential recommendation is made for one influenza vaccine product over another for people for whom more than one licensed, recommended product is otherwise appropriate. Updated information and guidance in this document includes the following:

  • In light of low effectiveness against influenza A(H1N1)pdm09 in the United States during the 2013-14 and 2015-16 seasons, for the 2017-18 season, ACIP makes the interim recommendation that LAIV4 (nasal spray) should not be used. Because LAIV4 is still a licensed vaccine that might be available and that some providers might elect to use, for informational purposes, reference is made to previous recommendations for its use.
  • The 2017-2018 U.S. trivalent influenza vaccines will contain an A/Michigan/45/2015 (H1N1)pdm09-like virus, an A/Hong Kong/4801/2014 (H3N2)-like virus, and a B/Brisbane/60/2008-like virus (Victoria lineage). Quadrivalent vaccines will include an additional vaccine virus strain, a B/Phuket/3073/2013-like virus (Yamagata lineage).
  • Recent new vaccine licensures are discussed:
    • An MF59-adjuvanted trivalent inactivated influenza vaccine (aIIV3), Fluad (Seqirus, Holly Springs, North Carolina), was licensed by FDA in November 2015 for people aged ≥ 65 years. Regulatory information is available at http://www.fda.gov/BiologicsBloodVaccines/SafetyAvailability/VaccineSafety/ucm473989.htm. aIIV3 is an acceptable alternative to other vaccines licensed for people in this age group. ACIP and CDC do not express a preference for any particular vaccine product.
    • A quadrivalent formulation of Flucelvax (cell culture-based inactivated influenza vaccine [ccIIV4], Seqirus, Holly Springs, North Carolina) was licensed by the FDA in May 2016 for people aged ≥ 4 years. Regulatory information is available at: http://www.fda.gov/BiologicsBloodVaccines/Vaccines/ApprovedProducts/ucm502844.htm. ccIIV4 is an acceptable alternative to other vaccines licensed for people in this age group. No preference is expressed for any particular vaccine product.

    A number of methods and exercises have been developed that help a person both mentally and physically during withdrawal. Specific supplements can help with diarrhea, vomiting or other symptoms. Assists are simple and gentle procedures that help relieve physical pain and mental anxiety. Objective exercises calm a person’s mind and enable him to direct his attention toward recovery and the future and get attention off pain and the past. Those going through this process often remark on how manageable this withdrawal procedure is.

    This is followed by an innovative detoxification step. Opiate abusers experience a mental fog from using these drugs (as do users of many drugs). Drug residues that are not fully eliminated from the body can cause this fog to persist, even long after drugs are discontinued. The Narconon New Life Detoxification combines sauna, exercise and nutrition to activate the body’s ability to flush out these residual toxins. The result is clearer thinking and an improved outlook on life. Most people also state that their cravings for drugs are greatly reduced or eliminated altogether.

    A person who wishes to stay drug-free for the long haul must then overcome a mental or psychological need for drugs. This means building the skills to deal with life as it is, without hiding or trying to escape. This is the final phase of the Narconon program.

    Bei der Influenza handelt es sich um eine Infektionskrankheit bei Menschen, die durch Viren ausgelöst wird. Es handelt sich dabei umgangssprachlich um eine Virusgrippe, die auch echte Grippe genannt wird. Häufig werden fälschlicherweise auch harmloserer Viruserkrankungen, wie ein grippaler Infekt als Grippe bezeichnet. Die echte Grippe wird durch Viren aus dem Influenzavirus A oder B ausgelöst und ist nicht mit einem grippalen Infekt vergleichbar, da der Krankheitsverlauf schwerwiegender ist.

    Erkrankungen, die durch Influenzaviren hervorgerufen werden, gibt es weltweit und werden in den meisten Fällen durch die Viren aus der Gruppe Influenzaviren A oder B ausgelöst. Diese Viruserkrankungen haben unterschiedlichste Auslöser und Ursachen. Auch die Behandlungsmethoden sind vielfältig. In seltenen Fällen kommt es aber auch zu Erkrankungen, die durch Influenza C Viren ausgelöst werden. Dieses Krankheitsbild ist jährlich aber nur bei ca 20 bis 30 Prozent der Menschen weltweit zu finden. In seltenen Fällen spricht man auch von einer Epidemie, das ist der Fall, wenn sich der Virus sehr schnell in einem Gebiet ausbreitet und eine Mehrheit der dort lebenden Menschen betroffen ist.

    Da es sich um eine Viruserkrankung handelt, begünstigt ein schwaches Immunsystem die Ansteckungsgefahr um ein Vielfaches. Die Influenza Viruserkrankung wird als Tröpfcheninfektion über die Schleimhäute übertragen. Dazu zählen, Mund, Nase, Augen und Atemwege. Der Virus erreicht den Körper über diese Eintrittsorte und wird durch andere erkrankte Personen durch, Niesen, Sprechen, Husten und Atmen übertragen. Die größeren Tröpfchen, die dabei entstehen, sinken sehr schnell nach unten und verkleben dann an rauen Oberflächen.

    Wenn die Exspirationströpfchen aber bereits in der Luft trocknen, können die darin enthaltenen Viren sich über die Luft verteilen und über mehrere Stunden infektiös bleiben. Dieses Verbreitungsschema wird besonders in den Wintertagen durch eine trockene und warme Heizungsluft begünstigt, die dazu beiträgt, dass sich der Influenza Virus besonders im Winter schnell ausbreiten kann. Auch durch das Berühren von Infizierten oder Oberflächen, an denen sich bereits Tröpfchen Erreger befinden, kann man sich schnell anstecken. Die Viren überleben auf glatten Oberflächen zwei Tage und können so durch Berühren mit den Händen leicht in die eigenen Schleimhäute gelangen.

    Bei der Influenza gibt es eine Vielzahl an Symptomen, die nicht alle auftreten müssen und auch in verschiedenen Zeitabschnitten auftreten können. Nach der Ansteckung kann es zwei Tage dauern, bis sich die ersten Symptome bemerkbar machen. Oft werden die zahlreichen Symptome auch mit einer anderen Atemwegserkrankung oder einen grippalem Infekt verwechselt.
    Zu den Symptomen zählen ein stark ausgeprägtes Unwohlsein und ein allgemeines Krankheitsgefühl. Auch hohes Fieber, das bis 40 Grad auftritt und Schüttelfrost, sind Begleiter des Influenza Virus. Auch ausgeprägte Appetitlosigkeit und Übelkeit, die durchaus auch zum Erbrechen führen kann, werden immer wieder als Symptome von Infizierten Personen genannt.

    Zusätzlich treten Kopfschmerzen und Gliederschmerzen vermehrt auf, sodass sich die Infizierten Personen oftmals nicht mehr dazu in Stande fühlen einem normalen Tagesablauf nachzukommen. Ausgeprägte Müdigkeit und Lustlosigkeit schließen sich den Symptomen der Influenza gerne an. Sehr häufig kommt es auch zu einem trockenen Hals und einer trockenen Kehle, die nicht selten zu einem trockenen und anstrengenden Husten führen können. Auch eine sehr angeschwollene Nasenschleimhaut, die zu einer laufenden Nase führt und starkes Augentränen, das nicht nur lästig ist, sondern auch oftmals zu Verkrustungen führen kann, ist ein häufiges Symptom bei dieser Viruserkrankung.

    Eine eindeutige Diagnose wird in den meisten Fällen mithilfe eines Nasenabstrichs aus dem hinteren Nasenbereich gestellt, oder aus einem Abstrich aus dem Rachen. Aufgrund dieser Abstriche kann man eine gute Diagnose stellen. Auch eine Blutuntersuchung gibt Aufschluss, ob es sich um eine Influenza Infektion handelt. Des Weiteren gibt es auch einen speziellen Influenza Test, der innerhalb von 15 Minuten eine klare Diagnose stellen kann, dieser Test ist eine wichtige Hilfe bei der Diagnosestellung. Eine weitere wichtige Methode ist Influenza PCR diese Methode basiert auf der Molekularbiologie und bietet die Möglichkeit eine Diagnose zu stellen.

    Eine Influenza Viruserkrankung wird in den meisten Fällen mit antiviralen Medikamenten behandelt. Diese Medikamente sind verschreibungspflichtig und sollen den Krankheitsverlauf verkürzen und die Symptome abschwächen. Ein wichtiger Punkt bei diesen Medikamenten ist eine genaue Beachtung der Dosierung und der Art der Einnahme. Hierbei sollte man unbedingt auf die Anweisungen des behandelnden Arztes vertrauen.

    Auch die Behandlung einzelner Symptome ist möglich, so werden gegebenenfalls Mittel eingenommen um das Fieber zu senken oder um das allgemeine Unwohlsein zu behandeln. Diese Medikamente dienen allerdings nicht der Eliminierung der Viren oder der Verhinderung der Vermehrung der Viren. Wenn es während einer Influenza Infektion auch zu einer bakteriellen Infektion kommt, ist es ratsam, dieser mit einer Antibiotika Behandlung zu begegnen. Des Weiteren ist es ratsam über dem gesamten Zeitraum der Influenza Erkrankung ausreichend viel Flüssigkeit zu sich zunehmen, um einer Austrocknung vorzubeugen, auch eine gute Luftfeuchtigkeit und Medikamente die dabei helfen die Nasenschleimhaut zu beruhigen sind empfehlenswert.

    Das Anhalten der Symptome bei einer Influenza Viruserkrankung verläuft über einen Zeitraum zwischen 7 und 14 Tagen. Erst wenn die Influenza Viren komplett bekämpft worden sind, kann man von einer Genesung sprechen. Meistens beginnt die Infektion sehr plötzlich und braucht dann Ihre Zeit, bis sie wieder abheilt. Auch Nachwirkungen wie Appetitlosigkeit und anhaltende Schwächegefühle wie bei einer beginnenden Erkrankung können noch mehrere Wochen nach behandelter Influenza Infektion auftreten.

    Physicians in Crop Sprayed Towns (PCST), a group of physicians in Brazil, have claimed that the Zika Virus is not responsible for the dramatic rise in cases of Microcephaly. The tenfold increase of newborn babies with Microcephaly in Brazil, has alarmed Health officials around the world. Although the Zika Virus has never been officially linked with Microcephaly, there was strong suggestion from the World Health organisation and the CDC that the virus was the culprit.

    The U.S Centers for Disease Control have advised pregnant women or women trying to conceive to avoid areas with Zika Virus outbreaks. They have also advised pregnant women to reconsider going to the 2016 Olympic Games in Brazil if they had planned to do so. Both women and their partners should be very cautious concerning the Zika Virus after it was discovered that the virus may be also be passed through sexual contact as well as the traditional route via the aedes aegypti mosquito.

    On 14th April 2016 Dr Tom Frieden, the head of the CDC, confirmed that the Zika Virus does indeed cause Microcephaly and several other birth defects in babies. He stated that 'This study marks a turning point in the Zika outbreak. It is now clear that the virus causes microcephaly'. The Zika virus was previously beleived to have caused the birth defects seen in newborn babies, characterized by unusually small heads, and this has now been confirmed by the CDC.

    Rabies is a rare but very serious infection of the brain and nerves. It's usually caught from the bite or scratch of an infected animal, most often a dog.

    Rabies is found throughout the world, particularly in Asia, Africa, and Central and South America. It's not found in the UK except in a small number of wild bats.

    It's almost always fatal once symptoms appear, but treatment before this happens is very effective. There's also a vaccine for people at risk of being infected.

    You should consider getting vaccinated against rabies if:

    • you're travelling to an area where rabies is common and you plan to stay for a month or more, or there's unlikely to be quick access to appropriate medical care
    • you're travelling to an area where rabies is common and you plan to do activities that could put you at increased risk of exposure to animals with rabies – such as running or cycling

    Visit your GP or a travel clinic if you think you may need the vaccine. It's sometimes free, but most people have to pay.

    Even if you've been vaccinated, you should still take precautions to avoid coming into contact with rabies if you're travelling in an area where rabies is found, and get medical advice straight away if you've been bitten or scratched.

    A few people may need the rabies vaccine because they could come into contact with rabies through their work. If you think this applies to you, speak to your occupational health department.

    All mammals (including monkeys) can carry rabies, but it's most common in:

    They can spread the infection if they bite or scratch you or, in rare cases, if they lick an open wound or their saliva gets into your mouth or eyes. Rabies isn't spread through unbroken skin or between people.

    While travelling in an area where rabies is a risk:

    • avoid contact with animals – some infected animals may behave strangely, but sometimes there may be no obvious signs they're infected
    • avoid touching any dead animals

    Of course mainland ethnic Chinese have not suffered any noticeable calcium deficiency - or osteoporosis. In addition - ethnic Chinese eating a traditional diet of fish, vegetables and rice alos have low levels of cholesterol and heart disease.

    On the other hand - Westerners in developed countries with abundant dairy foods in the diet have the highest levels of osteoporosis and other chronic diseases like diabetes, heart disease and arthritis.

    • This is at odds with the 'general rule' peddled by dairy corporations that milk prevents osteoporosis

    Recent clinical studies have shown that consuming dairy products at the recommended level (three serves a day) does not reliably prevent osteoporosis. In fact it can contribute to bone density loss. A 1992 study showed that women on dairy-rich diets actually had a higher rate of bone fracture from osteoporosis that those on a dairy-free diet. It was found that the level of calcium in the body was a delicate balance:

    • Calcium absorption from the diet offset by
    • Leaky Gut: allowing nutrients to leave to body before absorption
    • The loss of calcium leached out by eating animal protein, caffeine, salt and also by smoking and physical inactivity.

    So prevention of osteoporosis is not just a matter of eating calcium-rich foods. Firstly the calcium must be in a form that is readily absorbed and secondly we must take care with factors that cause calcium loss, like Leaky Gut

    I think I might have food intolerance: What should I do?

    Beginning with our free e-book, we can help you establish if you are suffering from gluten or wheat intolerance or if your symptoms indicate an intolerance to dairy, fructose or yeast. You may even be suffering from more than one food intolerance.

    Doing nothing can be a risk. Undiagnosed food intolerance can cause serious long-term health problems like osteoporosis, anaemia and many others.

    Mosquito season is just around the corner, which means the U.S. and other countries are ramping up mosquito control in an attempt to contain the rapidly spreading Zika virus.

    But as TIME recently reported in our cover story, authorities still expect the U.S. to see some locally transmitted cases of the virus this summer. One challenge is that it can be difficult to track the exact number of people infected with Zika, because the symptoms are similar to other diseases—and the vast majority of those who are infected don’t show any symptoms at all.

    For those who do develop symptoms, the most common ones that characterize a Zika infection are red eyes, joint pain, rash and fever. If a person has a rash with or without a fever and another one of the four symptoms, that is considered a probable case of Zika. Still, there are other ailments that can cause similar symptoms, like the flu or other mosquito-borne illnesses like dengue.

    Right now, the people at risk of getting infected are those who travel to one of the over 40 countries with ongoing Zika virus transmission. Should a person start having symptoms of the virus within two weeks of traveling to an affected region, it may be a good idea to see a doctor and determine whether to be tested. All pregnant women who travel to regions with Zika should be tested regardless of whether they have symptoms, health experts advise. Pregnant women are especially vulnerable since Zika is now proven to cause microcephaly, a birth defect, in infants. Partners of pregnant women should also be aware that the virus can be sexually transmitted, which is why health officials are advising men to abstain or use contraception for six months if they have been exposed and don’t want to pass it on. Women who may have been exposed should wait at least eight weeks before trying to get pregnant.

    Currently, only state and federal laboratories can test for the virus and sometimes results can take weeks to get back. You can read more about whether you should be tested here.
