Travel Health – Malaria

Of all the possible diseases you can get while traveling overseas, none of them cause more concern or strike up fear like malaria, and for good reason.

It is estimated to be up to a half a billion cases of malaria annually with about 1 million deaths, particularly among young children.

It is considered the most important parasitic disease affecting humans. The disease has great socio-economic importance and helps in keeping poor countries poor in a vicious cycle.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about 1,300 cases of malaria are diagnosed in the United States each year. The vast majority of cases in the United States are in travelers and immigrants returning from malaria-risk areas, many from sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia.

The protozoan parasite belongs from the genus Plasmodium. There are many species of Plasmodium that infect vertebrates, but only 4 that are important to humans. The four species are:

o Plasmodium falciparum
o Plasmodium vivax
o Plasmodium malariae
o Plasmodium ovale

There have been some documented cases of people getting simian malaria (P. knowlesi).

Human malaria is considered a tropical disease, but some cases happen outside the tropics. Most cases are found in Southeast Asia, China, India, and Africa, parts of the Middle East, Mexico, Central and South America.

For malaria to occur you must have the following; a susceptible population, malaria carriers and the right mosquito vector (the female Anopheles mosquito).

The life cycle for all the malaria species is essentially the same. It’s very complicated (with part in the mosquito and part in the human) but in a nutshell, in humans it goes like this: During a blood meal, a malaria-infected female Anopheles mosquito inoculates the parasite into the human host.

The parasite almost immediately infects liver cells and goes through a maturation series and ruptures. Just a side, P. vivax and P. ovale can have a dormant stage in the liver and can cause relapses in the blood weeks to years later.

The parasite then moves on to infect red blood cells. Blood stage parasites are responsible for the clinical manifestations of the disease.

The parasite is later ingested by an Anopheles mosquito during a blood meal and the cycle in the mosquito happens. It really is a vicious cycle.

The disease may manifest itself after an incubation of days to months. Once the parasites build up in the blood, symptoms are non-specific; fever, chills, body aches, diarrhea and vomiting. At this point the only way to confirm is finding the parasites in blood. These early stages resemble many other febrile diseases.
Paroxysms (due to rupture and release of the parasite and metabolic products into the system), happen every 48-72 hours depending on the species.

There is a cold stage which leads to teeth chattering, shaking chills followed by a hot stage (fever) where temperatures may reach 106°F. Convulsions may develop particularly in children.

Untreated P. falciparum (the life-threatening species) can lead to severe malaria. Severe malaria is characterized by cerebral malaria, severe anemia, renal filure (black water fever), respiratory distress and bleeding disorders and shock.

Prompt treatment for falciparum malaria is essential cause death from cerebral complications may occur.

The other human malarias are not usually life-threatening. People who are partially immune or non-immune but taking prophylactic anti-malarials, may show atypical symptoms and a longer incubation period.

Active malaria is most frequently diagnosed by observing the parasite in blood smears. There are molecular and antibody detection techniques to complement microscopic examination.

Treatment of malaria depends on several factors; The type (species) of the infecting parasite, the area where the infection was acquired and its drug-resistance status, the clinical status of the patient, any accompanying illness or condition, pregnancy, drug allergies, or other medications taken by the patient.

Chloroquine, Fansidar, mefloquine, Malarone, quinine, doxycycline and artemisin derivatives (not licensed for use in the United States, but often found overseas) can be used to treat malaria.

As a traveler in a malaria endemic area, what preventive measures can you take?

There is no vaccine currently available for malaria. According to the CDC all travelers to malaria-endemic areas should be advised that taking an appropriate drug regimen and using antimosquito (insecticide treated bed nets, stay in well screened areas, DEET insect repellent) measures will help prevent malaria. Travelers should be informed that no method can protect completely against the risk for contracting malaria.

8 Strong Reasons to Buy Your Own Health Insurance Cover Right Now

Wealth Protection is an area often neglected in lieu of Wealth Creation. Without an iota of doubt, Wealth Creation by doing smart investments is definitely important. But what use is it if there is an imminent risk of losing all that you created over your life time – in a span of, say, a few months?

Health Insurance is one such aspect of Wealth Protection – where most of us feel that either we are already protected enough by our company group insurance policy, or God will always be too kind on us and nothing is going to happen to us while we are in our prime age. Can we be further away from truth? And all of us see and hear enough examples around us everyday, which contradict this basic assumption of ours. Just closing our eyes is not going to make the risk vanish. A smart wealth creator, like a smart project manager, manages the risk of health by ‘adequately’ covering this risk associated with it. Cover your risk before it is too late.

It was a sever heart attack. He was fortunate to have survived. He is 31, my ex-colleague, working in an MNC in Gurgaon, and highly successful – or seemingly so. He has a beautiful daughter and a very caring wife. All his 3 arteries were more than 70% blocked. Bypass was the only option. When he came home, his corpus was down by 25% – this in spite of having a group insurance policy from his employer. Other than the emotional setback as well as lifelong constraints on his lifestyle habits, it is going to take him another 4 years of hard work – just to claw back his portfolio to where it was prior to this incident. You may say he was unlucky. No. He was not a smart portfolio manager. A smart manager will always cover the risks to his or her portfolio.

And if after reading this, you have been thinking that it may have happened with him because of his workplace stress, and that you don’t take that much stress at your workplace, let me tell you that the food you eat, the air you breathe, and the water you drink have become toxic enough to cause such, and many more dangerous diseases even if you are leading an absolutely stress free life. It is unfortunate, but true that we are living and consuming such toxicity. Who will be the next one – is just a matter of chance.

Hope for the best, but prepare for the worst – that is how we used to plan our projects. that is how exactly you ought to deal with your life. I sincerely hope you lead a healthy and prosperous life, but I earnestly urge you to be prepared in case of any such eventuality -for it is a definitely reality in our so called developed world.

Here are 8 strong reasons you must buy your own health insurance policy at the earliest, irrespective of your age or your existing cover:

1) Avoid stringent tests

If you think, you will save some money and take a health insurance cover only when you cross the age of 50, then please be aware that after 50, almost all health insurance companies subject buyers to a slew of medical tests before selling them a health plan. And once you undergo a battery of tests at that age, it is quite likely that you will be discovered with some minor, if not severe, anomaly. Each such anomaly is going to load your premium, apart from the physical pain of undergoing all the tests. You can avoid all these tests if you buy your health insurance policy earlier. Any pre-existing diseases are automatically covered in such a case. Any diseases diagnosed later will be covered – without any additional premiums.

2) Pay lower premium

Health insurance premiums are quite low when the age is less. The lower the age group, the lower the premium. And premiums go up only if you move across age groups. At 25, a plan with Rs 5 lakh coverage would cost you around Rs 8000, at 35 you’ll have to shell out around Rs 11000 and at 45 the cost rises to Rs 18000. So buy it as early as possible to book the policy at the lowest possible premium.

3) Accumulate no-claim benefits

Even if you remain healthy – which we should all hope for – with every such no-claim year, the extent of your medical cover increases. Buying early means you are likely to have more no-claim years, allowing you to accumulate the benefits over time.

4) Get access to cheaper and hassle free online buying

At a young age, you can buy a decent enough health insurance policy online. The online policies are cheaper. Many insurers are not willing to sell online if the buyer is above 50. You will not be able to avail of the ease of online purchase if you wait too long.

5) Your employer cover is just not sufficient

With exponential increase in healthcare costs, the need for health insurance cannot be overstated. Check the cost of a week’s hospitalized for a regular illness and then compare it with your company’s coverage. Most likely you’ll be persuaded to buy a cover immediately. Still not sure? Think about when you grow older and might need more frequent medical attention. What about if you are asked to leave the company – a harsh reality today? What about the period in between two jobs? You ought to cover all these risks to protect your portfolio.

6) Avail Sec 80D Tax benefits over and above Sec 80C benefits

Buying your health insurance early also means better financial planning. You save tax for paying the premium. Under section 80D, you can potentially save taxes upto Rs.40,000 annually. If you take these tax benefits into account, the cost of a health insurance policy is not prohibitive considering the protection you enjoy.

7) Overcome the Waiting Period

When I quit IBM and took financial freedom, I bought a private health insurance policy – just to realise that I have to undergo a waiting period of 2 years for specific treatments. And, as fate would have it, my wife had to be operated for one such disease during this 2 year period. Who paid? I did. Do not do the same mistake that I did. Do not wait to buy a health insurance policy till it becomes a definite necessity.

When you buy a health plan, you have to serve several waiting periods-for certain surgeries, special treatments, pre-existing illness coverage, etc. If you buy it now, when do not need it immediately, it would mean you would have served the requisite waiting periods and be able to claim all full benefits later.

8) Cover your ‘to be born’

Today’s health insurance policies covers much more than just hospitalization. New health plans cover you for day care procedures and OPD, not just serious hospitalization. Even vector borne diseases are covered. Most plans also have maternity benefits, which may be relevant at this stage of life. Also, your new born will be covered from birth without any additional premiums.

As with wealth creation, taking action early works with wealth protection too.
