Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically the laboratory characteristics of dengue fever are not only decreased platelets, leukocytes and hematocrit can also experience changes. Leukocytes will usually decrease first (before a decrease in platelets occurs - a decrease in platelets will usually only be seen after the third day), and will begin to increase before an increase in platelets occurs (platelets usually begin to increase on the seventh day). Hematocrit can experience an increase (indicating the presence of hemoconcentration), especially in critical periods of dengue (on days three to six) and will decrease again after the critical period has passed.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
