Evaluating Risk Factors: Valley Fever

Evaluating your likely current (and near future) state of health means taking into account the risk factors — such as coccidioidomycosis (valley fever) — that affect you.   Our medical diagnosis tool, The Analyst™, identifies major risk factors by asking the right questions.

In the Immune System Symptoms section of the questionnaire, The Analyst™ will ask the following question about coccidioidomycosis (valley fever):
Coccidioidomycosis (Valley Fever). Have you ever been diagnosed with this condition? It is a serious fungal disease of the lungs and other tissues.
Possible responses:
→ No / don't know
→ I tested negative
→ In the past only
→ Current problem, only lungs involved
→ Current problem, disseminated

The Diagnostic Process

Based on your response to this question, which may indicate absence of coccidioidomycosis, history of coccidioidomycosis, coccidioidomycosis or disseminated coccidioidomycosis, The Analyst™ will use differential diagnosis to consider possibilities such as:
Immune System Imbalance (TH2 Dominance)

Since cellular immunity is responsible for protection against the spreading of coccidioidomycosis, cellular immunity may be depressed in those who experience dissemination.  HIV, for example, greatly increases the risk of developing coccidioidomycosis.
