RAPID FLU TEST KIT DESCRIPTION

Influenza (the flu) is a viral respiratory infection that causes a range of mild to severe illnesses. It can affect the nose, throat, and sometimes the lungs, depending on the severity of the infection.

The flu is seasonal, beginning in late fall, and disappearing in early spring. About 8% of the U.S. population will get sick from the flu every year. If you think you might have the flu, it’s important to use this at-home rapid flu test kit as soon as possible.

Who Should Use An At-Home Rapid Flu Test Kit?

If you are experiencing any symptoms of the flu, it’s in your best interest to use an at-home flu test kit to find out if you have influenza. Some of the most common symptoms of the flu include:

  • Headache
  • Fever
  • Muscle aches
  • Chills
  • Fatigue or Lethargy
  • Stuffy nose
  • Sore throat
  • Cough that is more severe and longer lasting than a cold

The symptoms of the flu typically come on suddenly. But every case of the flu is unique, so you may experience some or all of these symptoms.

Why Is Testing For the Flu Important?

It’s important to get tested right away if you are experiencing any symptoms of the flu. Why? The sooner you get tested, the sooner you can get the medications you need to manage your symptoms and improve your health.

If left untreated, the flu can lead to serious health complications, including bronchitis and pneumonia. In some cases, the flu is even fatal. For this reason, no one should ever assume that they don’t need to get tested and treated.

Testing for the flu is also important so you can find out if you are contagious. If your results are positive, you could spread the flu to other people if you aren’t careful. But if you never take a test, you won’t know that you are at risk of infecting others with this serious illness.

What Do I Need to Do to Prepare to Use the At-Home Flu Test Kit?

You don’t need to do anything to prepare to use an at-home flu test kit. Everything you will need to perform the test and get your results will be included in the test kit. Simply follow the instructions to complete the test and find out whether or not you have the flu.

How Does An At-Home Rapid Flu Test Kit Work?

Rapid flu test kits make testing for the flu easier than ever before. Here’s how to test for the flu at home:

  1. Order a flu test kit from the myLAB Box website. Shipping is free.  
  2. Follow the instructions in the testing kit to collect and test a sample.
  3. Receive your results within 10 minutes.

That’s all it takes to test for the flu at home. You can get the answer you need within 10 minutes without ever stepping foot outside of your house!

What Are the Benefits of Using An At-Home Rapid Flu Test Kit?

There are many benefits to testing for the flu at home instead of in a doctor’s office. First, an at-home test kit only costs $59. But if you get tested for the flu at a doctor’s office, you may end up spending much more, depending on your health insurance.

Testing for the flu at home is also much more convenient than getting tested at a doctor’s office. You won’t need to call your doctor, schedule an appointment, take time out of your day to travel to the office, and wait for the doctor to see you. You can complete an at-home flu test within a matter of minutes.

These are some of the many reasons why so many people choose to test for the flu at home rather than in a doctor’s office.

How to Read the Results of A Rapid Flu Test Kit

You will receive the results of a rapid flu test kit within 10 minutes. There’s no need to send your sample into a lab and wait for further testing—you can get your results from the comfort of your home.

If your results are positive, this means you most likely have the flu. If your results are negative, this could mean that your symptoms are being caused by something else, such as a common cold. However, we do not recommend that users interpret negative results without taking advantage of our free telehealth consultation. Our providers are well-trained in evaluating the results in combination with your symptoms.

What Should I Do After Getting My Flu Test Kit Results?

You have the option of scheduling a free virtual consultation with a physician after completing the test and getting your results. It’s strongly recommended that you take advantage of this opportunity and schedule a consultation as soon as possible, regardless of whether you tested positive or negative for the flu.

Follow the instructions in your kit to book a free virtual physician consult with our partner Physician 360. During this consultation, ask the physician questions regarding your results, share your concerns, and discuss treatment options. If you are suffering from the flu, the physician can prescribe medications that may shorten the duration of your symptoms and help you fight the flu faster.

The flu is spread by tiny droplets that travel through the air when people cough, sneeze, or talk. Because the flu is contagious, it’s best to stay away from other people if you have tested positive.

You should make an effort to avoid contact with people who are at a high risk of suffering from flu complications, including adults over the age of 65, children under the age of 5, pregnant women, and people who suffer from chronic medical conditions.
