Glandular Fever Information

Glandular Fever cause

The cause of mononucleosis or glandular fever is an infection by the Epstein Barr virus, a member of the herpes virus family.
Like all the herpes viruses, the glandular fever virus remains in the body for life.
In some cases, the glandular fever virus can be reactivated when the body's defenses are lowered causing some people to get glandular fever twice or in rare cases, recurrent glandular fever.

Glandular fever symptoms

The typical glandular fever symptoms are:
  • Swollen glands in neck, armpits or groin
  • Fever ranging from mild to severe
  • Fatigue, sometimes extreme
  • Sore throat, similar to tonsillitis
Some patients will also suffer from:
  • Enlarged tonsils
  • Headache
  • Aching muscles
  • Poor appetite
  • Skin rash
  • Abdominal pain
  • Puffy eyelids
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Cough or runny nose
  • Enlarged liver and spleen.

Is mononucleosis the same as glandular fever?

Yes, mononucleosis is the same disease as glandular fever. It is also called infectious mononucleosis, mono, mononucleosis virus, Epstein Barr, Epstein Barr virus and EBV.

Duration of glandular fever

Symptoms of glandular fever usually last from 1 - 4 weeks although some cases may last months.

Can you get glandular fever twice? Is glandular fever recurrent?

Generally, people only get glandular fever once. Some people  get glandular fever twice. About 6% of people experience recurrent glandular fever for months or years after they initially contact the virus.
A glandular fever relapse or recurring glandular fever means that the immune system needs to be strengthened in order to keep the glandular fever symptoms at bay.
The e-book has a comprehensive glandular fever treatment plan that ensures long term glandular fever recovery.

How do you get glandular fever?

The glandular fever virus is shed from the throat during the illness and up to a year after the infection. The virus can become dormant and later reactivated during a glandular fever relapse when it can be shed from the throat again.
Apart from through kissing, saliva can transmit the glandular fever virus by people sharing drinking glasses, eating utensils, towels or toys. Glandular fever can be transmitted from mouth to hand so washing hands well is important.

Is glandular fever contagious?

Though good personal hygiene makes sense, the glandular fever virus is everywhere, and exposure to it cannot be avoided entirely. Washing hands well, avoiding kissing and not sharing towels, glasses and eating utensils with infected patients is a good idea. People with glandular fever do not need to be isolated from others.
See the e-book "Nature's Amazing Mononucleosis Cures"  for reasons why some people seem more susceptible to recurring glandular fever, and what you can do about it.

Glandular fever incubation

Glandular fever symptoms appear 30 - 50 days after exposure to the glandular fever virus, although some people are infected with the virus for weeks or months before any symptoms begin to appear.

Glandular fever diagnosis

Glandular fever diagnosis is based on a persons age, symptoms and a physical exam. A diagnosis of glandular fever is made from laboratory tests including:
  • Atypical lymphocytes - a type of white blood cell, in the blood. In mononucleosis, these atypical lymphocytes make up more than 10% of total lymphocytes.
  • Increased total white blood cell count
  • Antibody tests like the mono spot test.
  • Additional Epstein Barr antibody tests
These are fully explained in the e-book.

Glandular fever treatment

The conventional medical approach to glandular fever treatment  is not very effective. It includes only the basics like relieving glandular fever symptoms. Advice normally given is to rest, drink plenty of fluids, gargle with salt water and suck on throat lozenges to relieve a sore throat. To relieve pain and fever, acetaminophen or ibuprofen may be recommended.
Antibiotics like penicillin are of no help in mono. Glandular fever is caused by a virus, and antibiotics don't work against viruses. If you have a bacterial infection in addition to having glandular fever, your doctor may give you an antibiotic.
I believe that much more can be done to treat the virus naturally for a complete glandular fever recovery.  See the e-book "Nature's Amazing Mononucleosis Cures"  for our full treatment plan.
In the book, I show  the best natural health approaches to glandular fever treatment. I explain little known facts about nutrition, supplementation, pure water, adequate rest and sleep, stress reduction, and when to start gentle exercise. I also explain complementary therapies like the use of essential oils, homeopathy, massage, and visualization to ensure that glandular fever relapses do not occur.

Can glandular fever cause chronic fatigue?

Some patients suffer from recurring glandular fever. Their primary  symptom is usually fatigue and they end up being diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.  It is often in times of stress when a glandular fever relapse occurs.
The bottom line is how healthy your immune system is. If you still get recurring glandular fever with sore throats, swollen glands or fatigue, it is nature's way of telling you that something is wrong with your immune system.
It may be suppressed from poor eating habits, nutritional imbalances, stress, smoking or a chronic underlying disease. Your genes can also make you more susceptible to disease.
Fortunately, through general lifestyle practices like a healthy diet, stress reduction, regular exercise and taking some immune boosting supplements, you can strengthen your immunity and make a full glandular fever recovery.
See the e-book for my comprehensive glandular fever treatment plan.

Can glandular fever in children be a concern?

Glandular fever in adults is most common, mainly affecting adults aged 15 - 40. In children the glandular fever symptoms are normally less severe. Glandular fever in children is often passed off as a cold or flu and may not even be diagnosed.
In some cases acute glandular fever in children can be serious and has been known to turn into chronic glandular fever. Glandular fever treatment in children is the same as in adults as explained in "Nature's Amazing Mononucleosis Cures".

Can glandular fever in pregnancy be serious?

Recent research shows that reactivation of the Epstein Barr virus  during pregnancy may shorten the duration of the pregnancy. It has been associated with the baby having a lower average birth weight, length and head circumference.
Since pregnancy and breastfeeding can cause fatigue, it is vital to address a glandular fever treatment plan that ensures a quick recovery.
