Dengue fever is a mosquito-borne tropical disease caused by the dengue virus. Symptoms include fever, headache, muscle and joint pains, and a characteristic skin rash that is similar to measles. In the last few years Dengue has been spreading in north india during the rainy season of July - November. In degnue fever the platelets start to fall down. If the platelets fall below 10 thousand then there is a danger of haemorrhage happening in the blood capillaries all over the body which can be life threatening. In such a situation, platelet transfusion is the only option.
Chikungunya fever is also caused by the mosquito bite but the symptoms include very severe joint pain and high grade fever. Platelet Count falls in all the viral fevers but the fall is not as drastic as in the Dengue fever which differentiates it from the other viral fevers. The symptoms of Chikungunya are Flu, chills, fever, headache and aching joints - Joint pain can particularly occur in hands, wrist, ankles and feet which can last from weeks to months and can even continue for a year. There is no specific treatment for Chikungunya except symptomatic treatment for fever and pain.
Malaria is also caused by the mosquito bite and the symptoms include high grade fever accompanied by shaking chills, sweating, headache, nausea, vomitting, abdominal pain, diarrhea, anemia etc. A simple blood test is sufficient to diagnose malaria. Malaria can be a life-threatening condition, especially if you’re infected with the parasite P. falciparum. Treatment for the disease is typically provided by admitting you in the hospital. The reason for hospital admission is that in some cases the medication does not work and needs to be changed after observing the outcomes.
Typhoid fever is a serious bacterial infection that easily spreads through contaminated water and food. Along with high fever, it can cause abdominal pains, headache and loss of appetite. In India many people who themselves do not suffer from typhoid, act as carriers of the disease and they work in the food industry spreading the disease to unsuspecting patrons. Instant Diagnosis of typhoid is made by the Typhidot Test and the stage and severity is known through the IgG and IgM tests. Typhoid fever, when properly treated, is not fatal in most cases. Antibiotics have been commonly used to treat typhoid fever. You must complete the course of antibiotics even if you feel better so that you do not become a carrier for typhoid affecting others in your proximity.
Dr Singh is one of the top physician in Uttar Pradesh for the treatment of Viral Fevers like Dengue, Chikungunya, Malaria and Typhoid. Mild cases can be treated in the OPD but moderate and severe cases need to get admitted to the hospital for IV transfusion and monitoring. The cost of hospital admission is in the range of Rs. 5000 - 12000 depending on the room category and the condition of the patient. The medicines for these conditions are not very expensive but a bag of platelets costs Rs. 15 - 18 thousand and multiple such transfusions might be required in a severe case of Dengue Fever. This could take the cost of hospitalization into lacs of rupees. The typical duration of hospital stay for the treatment of these conditions is 3-5 days. Almost all the insurance companies cover these diseases after one month of the inception of your health insurance policy. However if you are holding an insurance policy which has been provided by your company then the treatment is covered from day one. You also have to check the room rent eligibility in your insurance policy to make sure that you get the complete claim amount and there are no deductions. If you opt for a higher category room than what you are eligible for, then you may have to bear some expenses for your treatment.
