How Is the Flu Diagnosed?
In the large majority of cases, our experienced practitioners can diagnose the flu by evaluating your symptoms, learning about your medical history, and performing a physical examination. While we can administer a flu test, we often do not need to do so to diagnose the flu. The flu test is not 100% accurate so we generally do not use it as a diagnostic tool in our evaluation.
How Is the Flu Treated?
Antiviral medication is an effective flu treatment for many patients — although many don’t need it at all — and it is most effective if given within the first 48 hours of the onset of symptoms. At-home remedies can also be effective. Rest, staying hydrated, and taking over-the-counter pain relievers for fevers and body aches is typically recommended.
