Hospitalized with Dengue Fever, still tired with headaches, trouble sleeping, elevated liver enzymes. Should be worried ?

I just returned from Dominican Republic with Dengue Fever . It has been aprox. 9 days since I have returned. I was hospitalized there for 3 days and then another 3 days in the states. I am feeling better, still tired at timeswith headaches at times, but trouble sleeping. I have hot flashes and severe sweating it feels like very hour 24hrs a day. My liver enzymes are still elevated, but platelets are better and so are WBC & DDimer. Should I be worried about the elevated Liver enzymes?? How long will they remain elevated. My doctor is doing a Hepatitis C test. Please advise.

Thanks for writing to us.
No, You should not worried about elevated liver enzyme because the enzyme level become normal after 2 months, your platelet count is normal.
If your liver enzymes not came down after 2 months you should consult a physician.
Good luck.

Thanks for your query.

It is expected to feel tired, have headache, since you just had a dengue fever. Mild symptoms will continue till the time your liver enzymes are elevated, but there is no need to worry. Liver enzymes take time to come back to normal about 6-8 weeks, but you should repeat your liver test weekly now & than once in 15 days. If test result is showing declining trend than you need not worry. Since your platelet count is near normal than there is no need to worry.

Take care.
