Malaria is diagnosed by looking for plasmodia (malaria parasites) in a blood smear under a microscope and can also be detected by using a good quality home test kit like the one we offer.
The final diagnosis of malaria should be done by a qualified and experienced health
practitioner, since this infection can take various forms, and can mimic a range of other health problems.
The diagnosis should be established by using both a malaria test as well as symptomatic evaluation.
Your health practitioner and malaria infection
A problem often experienced in first world countries, like America, is the fact that malaria infection is not often encountered by medical practitioners in normal practice.
This poses a danger to the patient, as certain indicators may be missed by the attending doctor - not through negligence - but due to the fact that the health practitioner may be unaware that the patient may have been exposed to malaria or other tropical diseases.
It is therefore of utmost importance to keep your health care practitioner informed if you at any time visited a malaria risk area.
