Dengue- Dengue fever is a mosquito-borne tropical disease caused by the dengue virus.  (1) The infection causes flu-like illness, and occasionally develops into a potentially lethal complication called severe dengue. (2) Dengue is very rampant in tropical countries like the Philippines so we should be cautious and vigilant at all times.

Malaria- Malaria is a life-threatening disease caused by parasites that are transmitted to people through the bites of infected female Anopheles mosquitoes. Malaria is an acute febrile illness. In a non-immune individual, symptoms usually appear 10–15 days after the infective mosquito bite. The first symptoms – fever, headache, and chills – may be mild and difficult to recognize as malaria. If not treated within 24 hours, P. falciparum malaria can progress to severe illness, often leading to death. (3) Good thing, health cards are available for families to use when Malaria strikes. Being prepared is always a priority. With Maxicare Lite Blue and Yellow, you can use the card to get much needed coverage in case this illness strikes.

 

Cholera- Cholera is an acute diarrhoeal infection caused by ingestion of food or water contaminated with the bacterium Vibrio cholerae. Cholera is an extremely virulent disease that can cause severe acute watery diarrhoea. It takes between 12 hours and 5 days for a person to show symptoms after ingesting contaminated food or water (4). You can use Maxicare Lite in Maxicare Accredited Hospitals in case of Cholera infection happening to you and your family.

 

Typhoid and Paratyphoid- Typhoid and paratyphoid fever are diseases of the intestinal tract caused by the Salmonella Typhi and Salmonella Paratyphi bacteria. The symptoms of typhoid fever may be mild or severe and may include prolonged fever, severe headache, malaise, constipation or diarrhoea, rose-coloured spots on the trunk and an enlarged spleen. Most people usually recover fully over several weeks, although it can be fatal if untreated. The symptoms of paratyphoid fever are similar but tend to be milder. The time from contact with the bacteria to the start of symptoms is usually 8–14 days for typhoid and 1–10 days for paratyphoid fever. (5) Exposure to contaminated water especially with countries like the Philippines is inevitable. To protect yourselves and your children it is best to be mindful of the drinking water you consume. When symptoms strike, you may use Maxicare Yellow and Maxicare Blue  health cards in ny Maxicare Accredited Hospitals and get coverage for Typhoid and Paratyphoid cases.

Gastroenteritis- Gastroenteritis is an illness triggered by the infection and inflammation of the digestive system. Typical symptoms include abdominal cramps, diarrhoea and vomiting. In many cases, the condition heals itself within a few days. The main complication of gastroenteritis is dehydration, but this can be prevented if the fluid lost in vomit and diarrhoea is replaced. A person suffering from severe gastroenteritis may need fluids administered intravenously (directly into the bloodstream via a vein – the setup is often referred to as a ‘drip’). Some of the causes of gastroenteritis include viruses, bacteria, bacterial toxins, parasites, particular chemicals and some drugs. (6) In cases where these symptoms start to disturb you and your family, be ready by having a prepaid health cards that covers this type of illness like Maxicare Lite Yellow and Maxicare Lite Blue.

 

Pneumonia- Pneumonia is an infection in one or both of the lungs. Many germs, such as bacteria, viruses, and fungi, can cause pneumonia. You can also get pneumonia by inhaling a liquid or chemical. People most at risk are older than 65 or younger than 2 years of age, or already have health problems. (7) Exposure to polluted and infected areas increase the risk of getting this illness. The more vulnerable ones are our kids and elderly. Get them protection and let’s now wait for the worst to come before we get much needed health protection. There are cheaper options like Miaxicare’s prepaid health cards.

 

Chikungunya- Chikungunya is a viral disease transmitted to humans by infected mosquitoes. It causes fever and severe joint pain. Other symptoms include muscle pain, headache, nausea, fatigue and rash. Chikungunya is characterized by an abrupt onset of fever frequently accompanied by joint pain. Other common signs and symptoms include muscle pain, headache, nausea, fatigue and rash. The joint pain is often very debilitating, but usually lasts for a few days or may be prolonged to weeks. Hence the virus can cause acute, subacute or chronic disease. (8) Chikungunya like Dengue and Malaria are just some of the viral and bacterial illnesses that pose threat to us and our loved ones. Being ready by keeping our surroundings clean and by getting prepaid health cards are just some of the ways to lessen the fatal risk of having theses illness.

 

 

Leptospirosis- Leptospirosis is a bacterial disease that affects humans and animals. It is caused by bacteria of the genus Leptospira. In humans, it can cause a wide range of symptoms, some of which may be mistaken for other diseases. Some infected persons, however, may have no symptoms at all. Without treatment, Leptospirosis can lead to kidney damage, meningitis (inflammation of the membrane around the brain and spinal cord), liver failure, respiratory distress, and even death. (9) With flooding and rainy season coming in, it is important to be extra careful. Lessen exposure to flood water especially is we have open mounds.
