I will be looking into your question and guiding you through the process. Please write your question below.

Dengue fever, vomited blood, bleeding gums, weakness. Low platelet count. Seizures seen. What can be done to improve health at this serious stage?

Goodnight. My cousin, a 21 year old guy has dengue fever . It was only discovered on Friday, however, he has been feeling ill since Monday. He vommitted blood on Thursday and Friday, his gums are bleeding and he is very weak. His platelet count on Friday was 65. Yesterday it increased to 67, unfortunately it has dropped to 45 today. He was warded at the General Hospital on Friday but little improvement has been seen thus far. He also had a seizure this morning and have been given injections to help with this. I would like to know what is the likelihood to see improvements or is it at a serious stage where little can be done.

The line of treatment taken by the hospital should be continued.

You can add Cap. Guduchi 2 caps twice a day and Cap. Amalaki 2 caps twice day.
This will greatly improve his condition.

Good Day! My son was hospitalized since 10th February 2014 due to recurring fever, vomiting and stomach ache. His blood platelet count readings was 194 188 140 132. He also underwent Dengue Fever test and the Doctor said the result is negative. Now I would like to ask, what could be the reason why my son s blood platelet count kept on decreasing? By the way, the Doctor also said my son has viral infection, is this why the platelet count kept on decreasing or there may be other reason? I am very worried every time the platelet count result has decreased. Thanks.
