Suffering from EHGNA. Having night sweats, flu. Work with street animals. Liver patology?

Hi, I suffer from EHGNA, I m not obese or overweight , and I have night sweats- cold sweat, and I have the flu almost every months. My corporal temperature is normally low, 35.5ºC so it s hard to me to get feber, but last two flu episodes were with 38.5º C that for me it s too much. I don t take any drugs for the flu, just relax, bed, liquid, ... I am very estrict with my diet ( I m vegan too), even I try don t use chemical housecleaning, and I go for swiming at least 3 times a week. I m wondering that if I should go to my practician, and, another question I ve been working with street animals since so many years, parasitosis can be related with liver patology? Thank so much for time and attention, Best regards Maby

Hello Maby,
Yes it is possible with repeated long term interaction with street animals to develop certain parasitic diseases that can affect the liver. These can be generally asymptomatic or may present with only low grade fever or mild abdominal discomfort.
However these are unlikely to present with repeated attacks of flu as in your case. I suggest you meet a physician in view of the repeated attacks of flu.
Also I think you should get an Ultrasound of the abdomen. Depending on the results any further investigations may be ordered.
Hope I have answered your query you remain well. I will be available in case of any further queries.
