Diet and health tips for people suffering from dengue fever

Juices-N-SmoothiesAs we all daily read in newspapers that everyday so many people die due to dengue fever. It is a viral illness.

The most effective and important tip to avoid dengue is stay away from mosquitoes and from stale water. Apart from that once you are suffering from dengue your diet plays a very important role to bring you out from this viral fever.

It is a very complicated treatment even for doctors where high doses of medications are given. At the same time food intake of patients are very low which is of greatest concern.

When these high doses are given it is very important to ensure that the patient is having good amount of calories and proteins to support the metabolism of those high doses of medicine.

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. 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.

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.

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.

Handful of nuts will also be a good option. In this condition fruit juice will be considered over whole fruits. Whole fruit fiber will give him satiety due to which eating quantity of food will be restricted.

drink juice during dengue fever

Have Fruits and Juices during Dengue Fever

 

Do not over load patient with spices, salt, fried and oily food. See to eat that patient gets vitamins from all the sources of fruits and vegetables. Soups are also a good option.

It will help to enhance his/her hunger and also improve his mouth taste. 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. Nausea and vomiting are the main symptoms of dengue fever which have to be taken care of.

In dengue the liver of the patient is targeted. So there is impaired function of liver. So it becomes very important to supply body with easy to digest food.

So that body doesn’t have to do extra effort of converting complex food into simple forms. After patient’s intake improves next focus after 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.

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 been suffering from fever for the 4 days. It remains between 100 and 101. For the last two days, crocin not helping at all. Fever remains the same doesn’t decrease at all. Though I haven’t had any dengue symptoms yet but will visit the doc today. Is it necessary to have high fever in dengue or can it target around 100-101 as well or may it be symptoms of some other infectious fever? Your assistance will be highly appreciated.

    My son has dengue fever and since the last 3 days his blood count has dropped significantly. Also he has started having blurry vision in his right eyes that seems to be getting bad each day. The doctors have put him on cortisones. His fever is manageable but his eye is still getting worse. The eye specialist has checked him but states that his eyes are healthy but they are not sure what is happening behind his eye. His head scan showed no bleeds or stroke. What can i do to help him to recover fast.

    Hello,
    My husband was dengue positive with 1,47,000 platelet count, he used to have severe headache and high fever till three days he was taking normal food and fever medicines, but on the fourth day he started vomiting, with in a day the platelet count dropped to 86,000 and I had to shift him immediately to hospital after three days it decreased initially (66,000) then it started increasing.

    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

    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
