Do you have the flu, or something else?

Posted by Clark Venable on 11/16/2004

Many people complain they're down with the 'flu' without really knowing whether it's influenza or not. While browsing my new Google ad sense banner (see left lower gutter) , I found a link to QuickVue, a test for influenza which I never knew existed (or had forgotten existed). It uses a nasal swab (and obtaining a sample is therefore less noxious than getting a Rapidstrep test) and takes about ten minutes to give a result. I have no information on cost.
