Brief Answer: Fever causes dehydration Detailed Answer: Dear sir/madam Welcome to healthcare magic After reviewing your case I feel that your wife is having dehydration due to high fever. Usually high fever will cause loss of electrolytes from body which causes loss of balances in the brain. We need to alter her medicines for your diabetes because illness causes rise in blood sugars considerably. Further blood glucose monitoring is adviced atleast 3 times a day. It is more important that we evaluate the cause for fever. She needs to undergo complete blood counts with platelets and urine examination. WIDAL and peripheral smear for malarial parasite would also be needed. The tests can be performed under the guidance of the local physician. In the interim, encourage her to drink plenty of fluids and take paracetamol tablets as and when she gets fever. Hope information is helpful. Let me know if you need clarifications. Regards

Hi! I was exposed for unprotected sex after six months ago last Dec.17, 2011, after 1 month i was tested then twas negative, and I was diagnosed for Malaria. I took some medicine then I was hospitalized for high infection, then was treated for antibiotic and my infection came less. My White blood cell becomes high to 20,000 mm3 then after medication its become normal. I was tested again for HIV before 3 months and the results was negative. Now i m going to six month for the next follow up test. I was really confused regarding on this matter, before my weight is about 86 kls and due to depression and fears I became 76 kls. Now as of June 2012 today, my weight has become higher to 87 kls. My big question is this? If you are infected to HIV virus there is a chance to get weight gain that your body has a virus? and nearly 3 months testing is conclusive results that Im not HIV positive?.........Now I m suffering sometimes for fatigue and body pain. thanks for your reply.
