    Dengue is a mosquito-borne viral infection that occurs in subtropical and tropical climates across the world. Early diagnosis of dengue can prevent severe complications that can potentially be fatal. 

    Dengue profile test is used to detect the presence of virus (through NS1 antigen test) or the antibodies (IgG and IgM) that are released as the body's natural defence to fight the infection. NS1 antigen is a non-structural protein found in the infected patients from the first day of fever up to the fifth day, in the initial few days after the onset of fever. If the person tests positive for IgM and IgG antibodies, it is likely the person may be infected by dengue in recent times. If IgG levels are higher than IgM, it is likely the person has been infected in the past. 

    If you experience symptoms like high fever, headache, fatigue, rash, muscle and joint pain, nausea, vomiting or additionally, bleeding from gums, nose, blood in the urine, bleeding under the skin, difficult or rapid breathing, etc, it is highly advisable that you contact your doctor immediately for timely screening, early detection and treatment.
