Flu Tests

Understanding Flu Tests

A flu test is a diagnostic tool used to determine the presence of influenza viruses in respiratory specimens. Among the various types of flu tests, rapid influenza diagnostic tests (RIDTs) are commonly used for their speed, providing results in as little as 10 to 15 minutes. Symptoms warranting a flu test include fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, and fatigue. The best time to get tested is within the first 24 to 48 hours after symptom onset, as this timeframe is critical for accurate detection and effective treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

How accurate are flu tests?

Flu tests, especially rapid influenza diagnostic tests, are highly effective in detecting the influenza virus, though no test is 100% accurate. Factors such as the time from symptom onset to testing can influence accuracy.

What is the difference between flu and COVID-19 tests?

Flu tests and COVID-19 tests are designed to detect different viruses. The flu test looks for influenza viruses, while COVID-19 tests detect the novel coronavirus. Both tests may involve similar methods of sample collection.

How should I act on my flu test results?

If your flu test result is positive, follow your healthcare provider’s advice regarding treatment, rest, and quarantine to prevent spreading the virus. If negative, but symptoms persist, seek further medical advice.

Can I get a flu test if I’m asymptomatic but have been exposed to the flu?

Yes, if you’ve been exposed to someone with the flu, getting tested can be a prudent step, even if you’re asymptomatic, to prevent unknowingly spreading the virus.

When is flu season and when should I get tested?

Flu season typically peaks between December and February, but it can start as early as October and last until May. It’s advisable to get tested if you experience flu-like symptoms during this time or have been in contact with someone who has the flu.
