Effect of fever on BRONCHIAL ASTHMA, CORONARY ARTERY DISEASE.

Resolved Question:

Iam 57 year. I have bronchial asthma and coronary artery disease for nearly 5 years. I was recently affected by Febrile Fever with high fever. Can you kindly tell me whether my febrile fever has any thing to do with my existing problem of either bronchial asthma or coronary artery disease. Is there any correlation between each of them.

Hello,
Thank you for your query at DoctorSpring.com
Regards from our team. Febrile fever is associated with infection, viral or bacterial. A flare up of asthma can be anticipated with any infection of respiratory tract.
However, there is no direct correlation between the two.
Feel free to discuss further,

Regards
Dr. Jacob George P
MD, IDCCM, FCCP


Patient replied :

Thanks for your consultation on our question. This iam asking since our Insurance company has rejected our claim on the basis that the two problems i have has resulted in my getting the Febrile Fever. You have mentioned in your reply that " a flare up of asthma can be anticipated with any any infection of respiratory tract. " You have however mentioned that thereis no direct correlation between the two. I am not clear whether my Insurance company will accept the fact that it does not have direct correlation since you have also mentioned that a flare up can be anticipated. Can you kindly explain further and authentically rule out any ditect or indirect connection between the two.

regards,

Usha Venugopal


Dear patient,
'The two problems i have has resulted in my getting the Febrile Fever'. That claim is wrong.. Coronary artery disease, bronchial asthma will not cause febrile fever. The converse of febrile fever causing asthma is true.
The insurance company does not have a right to withhold your treatment on that basis.

Regards
