Frequently Asked Questions

What are Monkeypox (Mpox) testing and re-testing CDC Recommendations?2023-03-22T00:58:14+00:00
  • “Test-of-cure” follow-up testing recommendations are not established for monkeypox.
  • Coinfection rates of monkeypox with other STIs and HIV are extremely high — approximately 40% for person’s diagnosed with monkeypox are coinfected with another STI or HIV.
  • The CDC recommends that any person diagnosed with monkeypox, also be tested for other STI infections and HIV.

Coinfection of monkeypox and HIV is common. About 40% of monkeypox patients have HIV. Any persons diagnosed with monkeypox should also be tested for HIV. Coinfection of monkeypox and other STIs is also common. Approximately 40% of monkeypox patients have been diagnosed with another STI within the preceding year. Any persons diagnosed with monkeypox should also be tested for other STI infections. (CDC)

 

What are Nisseria Gonorrhea (NG) testing and re-testing CDC Recommendations?2023-03-22T00:49:51+00:00
  • “Test-of-cure” follow-up testing is not recommended for genital and rectal infections unless symptoms persist.
  • “Test-of-cure” is recommended 7–14 days following treatment for oral gonorrhea infections.
  • Because re-infection is common, the CDC recommends that men and women diagnosed with gonorrhea be retested three months after treatment.

A test-of-cure – follow-up testing to be sure the infection was treated successfully – is not needed for genital and rectal infections; however, if a person’s symptoms continue for more than a few days after receiving treatment, he or she should return to a health care provider to be reevaluated. A test-of-cure is needed 7-14 days after treatment for people who are treated for a throat infection. Because re-infection is common, men and women with gonorrhea should be retested three months after treatment of the initial infection, regardless of whether they believe that their sex partners were successfully treated.

Gonorrhea can be cured with the right treatment. CDC recommends a single dose of 500 mg of intramuscular ceftriaxone. Alternative regimens are available when ceftriaxone cannot be used to treat urogenital or rectal gonorrhea. Although medication will stop the infection, it will not repair any permanent damage done by the disease. Antimicrobial resistance in gonorrhea is of increasing concern, and successful treatment of gonorrhea is becoming more difficult.

What are Chlamydia trachomatis (CT) testing and re-testing CDC Recommendations?2023-03-22T00:52:48+00:00
  • “Test-of-cure” follow-up testing is not recommended for Chlamydia infections unless symptoms persist.
  • Because re-infection is common, the CDC recommends that men and women diagnosed with Chlamydia be retested three months after treatment.

Repeat infection with chlamydia is common. Women whose sex partners have not been appropriately treated are at high risk for re-infection. Having multiple chlamydial infections increases a woman’s risk of serious reproductive health complications, including pelvic inflammatory disease and ectopic pregnancy. Women and men with chlamydia should be retested about three months after treatment of an initial infection, regardless of whether they believe that their sex partners were successfully treated. If a person’s symptoms continue for more than a few days after receiving treatment, he or she should return to a healthcare provider to be reevaluated.

Chlamydia can be easily cured with antibiotics. HIV-positive persons with chlamydia should receive the same treatment as those who are HIV-negative. Persons with chlamydia should abstain from sexual activity for 7 days after single dose antibiotics or until completion of a 7-day course of antibiotics, to prevent spreading the infection to partners. Although medication will stop the infection, it will not repair any permanent damage done by the disease.

What is periodontal disease?2023-03-22T02:33:28+00:00

Periodontal diseases are mainly the result of infections and inflammation of the gums and bone that surround and support the teeth. In its early stage, called gingivitis, the gums can become swollen and red, and they may bleed.

A recent CDC report1 provides the following data related to prevalence of periodontitis in the U.S.:

  • 47.2% of adults aged 30 years and older have some form of periodontal disease.
  • Periodontal disease increases with age, 70.1% of adults 65 years and older have periodontal disease.
  • This condition is more common in men than women (56.4% vs 38.4%), those living below the federal poverty level (65.4%), those with less than a high school education (66.9%), and current smokers (64.2%)

What is the importance of understanding your patients’ cortisol levels?2023-05-04T16:57:05+00:00

Understanding a patient’s cortisol levels is important to diagnose and treat several co-morbid conditions, including Cushing’s syndrome and Addison’s disease. A patient’s cortisol levels can also provide insight into his or her overall wellness, including sleep patterns and stress levels. (American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists, 2018).
