Diet and health tips for people suffering from dengue fever

Diet and health tips for people suffering from dengue fever

As we all daily read in newspapers that so many people died due to dengue fever. It is a viral illness. Dengue is affecting people of all age groups as the virus is passed by flies and  mosquitoes. So mosquitoes pass this virus from one person to another and hence it is important to keep your surrounding fly and mosquito free. So Diet and health tips for people suffering from dengue will be very helpful.

When you are infected by dengue your platelets start  falling down incredibly. Platelets are part of our red blood cells. Platelets helps in blood coagulation. So if platelets go very low then blood clotting is affected. And if you bleed from any part of the body, it is difficult to stop bleeding with low platelets. So we have to be very careful that there is no damage to the body externally or internally and the person does not bleed. Due to such risky conditions victims  get hospitalised or even require ICU setup as a preventive measure. So be careful of these small mosquito bites. They can change your health.

The most effective and important tip to avoid dengue fever is to stay away from mosquitoes and from long standing fresh water. And with the above precautions, still if you are suffering from dengue fever, diet plays a very important role to bring you out from this viral infection and you get your health back. Dengue fever is followed with lots of weakness and lethargy. 

There are high doses of medicines are going in. At the same time the appetite of the patient is very low to support those medicines. So an additional concern of eating good nutrition is important for fast recovery.

So if you wish to get out from this infection pretty soon, it is important that you eat well and drink well.

Now a day’s dengue fever is considered to be one of the dangerous fevers. Inspite of the medications available it is difficult to diagnose at an early stage. Dengue fever may or may not be detected in the first sample of your blood. But getting yourself treated under a physician is very  important. 

As we talk about diet for dengue fever. There is no thumb rule to be followed for diet but a few tips can help you to combat soon from the fever.

dengue fever remedies
Drink ample water during Dengue Fever

It is very necessary to supply your body with plenty of fluids throughout the day. Oral rehydration solution, fruit juices, coconut water, lime juice etc can be given which will help to remove the toxins from the body.

Virus gets excreted via urine hence reducing its load in the body and hence it is advised to be on more of liquid diet and increase overall water intake.

During fever appetite of patients is really very low, so it becomes our responsibility to select food which patient likes and apart from that the food selected should be such which has high energy in small quantities. Along with calorically dense food the consistency of food will also be very important.

For e.g. instead of chapatti give sheera with good amount of ghee and sugar. 1 chapati to eat would be difficult if compared with sheera. Sheera being soft doesn’t require efforts of chewing it. Milkshakes and fruit juices over whole fruits.

Nuts can be powdered and added to any of the food items or can be added to milk 2 times in a day

drink juice during dengue fever
Have Fruits and Juices during Dengue Fever

Do not over load patient with spices, salt, fried and oily food. During dengue fever your liver is affected the most. So when you load your food with fat and junk food, your liver is unable to metabolise as it has become weak as compared to before. So focus more on proteins and vitamins.

It is important to make sure that patient gets vitamins from all the sources of fruits and vegetables. Soups and juices are also a good choice as it is easy to consume and assimilation of nutrients is also quick.

During dengue fever, teh vitamins are lost and hence the patients don’t  have appetite as well as taste in mouth. Loading body with vitamins will help to enhance hunger and also improve taste buds sensitivity. Your diet can include boiled vegetables, rice porridge, soup, toast, apples, bananas and tea.

If patient is not comfortable with solid food patient can stick to liquids for 2-3 days after which solid intake should be gradually started. Liquids need not be very light like dal water or rice kanji. Make pulp of food and dilute little with water to make it drinking consistency eg mashed dal with some mashed rice or khichdi Nausea and vomiting are the main symptoms of dengue fever which have to be taken care of.

As dengue majorly affects the liver, there is impaired liver function. So it becomes very important to supply body with easy to digest food where in liver can rest and regenerate it’s cells..

So that body doesn’t have to do extra effort of converting complex food into simple forms. After patient’s intake improves so the focus from hydrating the patient is to start with a high protein diet.

Protein rich foods have to be included in the diet like milk and its products, pulses, eggs, fish, Chicken etc. Many a times doctors suggest to avoid non veg food. Non veg foods have more chances of infection and bacteria. So if it is not cooked properly or  not cleaned, it can cause infection and may add to the days of recovery. But if you are sure of your cooking method you can very well eat your meat made in less oil and spice. 

A high protein and calorie diet is recommended even after the fever is gone to restore all the resources of vitamins, minerals, proteins, fats in the body.


I have seen my patients suffering from major weakness even after a month or so. They are not able to perform their activities as before. So your body really needs to be replenished with nutrients and also give good rest to your body.

If you are not aware of the diet you should be eating, please consult your nutritionist or take help or a specialized person who can guide you with a correct diet and rejuvenate your body. You need to follow a good healthy routine and build your immunity back.

    treatment: Give plenty of nutrient rich fluids (Orange, papaya) pomegranate, Kiwi, Idli and papaya leaf extract 1-2 spoons morning and evening(Imp-helps to increase platelet count)

    If patients is continuously vomiting don’t take risk of treating at home even if there is no fever. This is my personal experience hope it helps

  75. Hi, my husband recently suffered from dengue fever. First of all once you get fever no matter how high please do a blood check immediately and if your blood is positive for dengue please do not panic . Have plenty of fluids like water, tender coconut, glucose water and fruits juice ( tetra packet only). Have boiled vegetables , lots of fruits like kiwi , papaya, avacado, dragon fruit these are good enough . Have papaya leaf extract juice one teaspoon early morning and evening every day not more than that. Don’t panic on the blood platlet nothin happens if it goes down , blood platelets go down even when a person gets viral fever so it’s nothin to worry jus keep a tab, admit the person if it drops below 20000. Be positive and u will be on your feet in four days. Hope this helped

    • Please give him papaya leave extract without adding water, It taste the most bitterest. And you can see the cell count gaining at instance.
