Hello Tegar, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will try to answer your question.
Anemia is a condition of lack of angry blood cells in the body, or when red blood cells do not function properly. Anemia can be temporary or prolonged depending on the cause. Anemia occurs when hemoglobin levels in the blood are below 14 grams per deciliter for men, and below 12 grams per deciliter for women. Anemia has some symptoms such as body weakness and not passionate.
In diagnosing an anemia the need to be examined by a doctor, usually apart from complaints that support anemia, the doctor will find the patient's pale eyelids. Investigations can be done to ensure a diagnosis such as a complete blood test, etc.
Most people misinterpret anemia, with dengue fever due to the words "lack of blood". Even though the two diseases above are clearly different. DHF or dengue hemorrhagic fever is a disease caused by dengue virus, and attacks platelets / platelets. So that plasma leakage will occur, where the fluid in the blood will come out of the blood vessels, causing the blood to become thick. Complaints that occur in this condition range from mild to severe symptoms such as fever, dizziness, to severe dehydration and loss of consciousness in severe conditions.
To ensure that all you can consult back to the doctor, to do a lab check because your fever has exceeded 1 week, but usually the fever in DHF is not that long. Some other possible diseases with complaints of fever, and nausea are:
Thyfoid Fever Gastroenteritis Dengue Fever Other other infections. Right now what you can do is:
Get enough rest and limit activities for a while. Drink plenty of water at least 2 - 2.5L per day to prevent dehydration. You can take paracetamol if the fever is very annoying. Avoid smoking, alcohol and coffee because it can interfere with the quality of your sleep. That's all the answers I can give, hopefully I answer.
Thank you very much :)
