Understanding Dengue Fever NS1 Antigen in Surat


What is Dengue Fever NS1 Antigen in Surat?

A Dengue Fever NS1 Antigen test detects the non-structural protein component (NS1) of the dengue virus and is available at an affordable price in Surat with Tata 1mg labs. NS1 is secreted into the blood during a dengue infection and is detectable for the first seven days of the symptoms. Therefore, this test helps in early diagnosis and treatment of the dengue infection. 

Dengue is a mosquito-borne illness that can cause severe flu-like symptoms, including high fever, severe headache, joint and muscle pain, and rash. If left untreated, the disease may progress to a severe form, such as dengue hemorrhagic fever or dengue shock syndrome. Higher-than-normal levels of the NS1 antigen may indicate a dengue infection. However, negative results do not necessarily rule out the possibility of infection, especially if the test is done early in the course of the disease. Further testing may be required to confirm the diagnosis.

What does Dengue Fever NS1 Antigen measure?

A Dengue Fever NS1 Antigen test measures the NS-1 protein of the dengue virus. This protein is secreted into the blood during the infection; hence, it can only be detected during the early stages of the illness. It is recommended to do the Dengue Fever NS1 Antigen test in the first 5 days of fever. After 7-10 days of continuous fever, the recommended test is Dengue fever antibodies IgG & IgM.

Dengue fever may progress to dengue hemorrhagic fever or dengue shock syndrome if left untreated. Dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF) includes variable manifestations like bleeding, vomiting blood, passing blood in the stool, difficulty breathing, and cold, clammy skin, especially in the extremities. If progressed, the virus may attack blood vessels, causing capillaries to leak fluid into the space around the lungs (pleural effusion) or the abdominal cavity (ascites).

Dengue shock syndrome (DSS) is a severe complication of dengue fever caused when the body's immune system overreacts to the dengue virus. It can lead to a sudden drop in blood pressure and dehydration; if not managed timely, it may lead to multiple organ failures. 

There is no specific treatment for dengue, but early diagnostic testing, such as the Dengue Fever NS1 Antigen test, can prevent the advancement of dengue to its complicated forms.
