My mom is a diabetic and high bp patient what medicine should I give her in fever? Please advise.

My mom is a diabetic and high bp patient what medicine should I give her in fever? Please advise.
Hi, Diabetes and hypertension have nothing to do with fever. Fever may be simple/ self-limiting viral infection, or it may a symptom some serious illness like typhoid/ malaria/ Dengue/ TB or many more like that. It is decided by symptoms provided by you, and a battery of investigations. But short term fever is most likely viral fever. Therefore, follow the advice and consult doctor with detail symptoms. 1. Take rest for 1-2 days. Wear light and cotton cloths, it helps in cooling of body. 2. Take Tablet Paracetamol 500 mg (as and when required; after food) for fever (more than 99 F) for 3 days. Maximum 3 tablets with gap of 8 hours can be taken in a day. 3. If fever persists, do cold sponging (with cold water even ice water if needed) to lower down temperature. 4. Drink plenty of fluids. 5. Take adequate rest and proper sleep. Going to work, working out may just make you feel worse as the extra action adds stress to your body. Inadequate sleep decreases immunity of body, which causes worsening of illness. 6. Take proper diet preferably homemade like dalia, khichdi, rice, dahl, chapatti, vegetable soups or steamed veggies. 7. This is season of dengue, therefore, if you have high grade fever, and body ache, then have Platlet Count from nearby Laboratory. Consult again if symptoms persist or worsen. ***Get Well Soon*** “Cold sponging is the best treatment if fever is uncontrolled.”

Some times it happens. You have to do some modification in your diet & excercise. I am talking about healthy diet not dieting. You can lose your weight upto 5 kg by following a good diet plan & excercise or a healthy diet with right ratio of calories, protein & carb. You have to avoid such type of unhealthy food like fried, oily foods, fast & junk food, sugary products & sugary drinks. You shd take a healthy breakfast. If you want to lose your weight please don't skip it because it will help you to boost your metabolism, includes salad with lunch & dinner.

Before you decide to take a decision about health always use logic, and if possible take a doctors opinion. The best and natural way is to let your body gain weight naturally. Do not force it as it can harm your body in the long run. Follow natural ways like - exercising every day for 1 hour. Learn yoga and pranayama as it can act as a catalyst to transform your body naturally. Eat healthy food and not junk food. Sleep on time everyday (6-8 hrs everyday). Avoid all bad habits. Go for a routine checkup with a doctor and do some tests to determine the inner body health. Include lots of fruits and vegetables everyday as it will nourish the body. You should look healthy with a well-toned body and not over-weight.

Cashews, almonds, dates, walnuts, dry grapes, apricots, peaches are some of the dried fruits and nuts that can be added to breakfast, salads, cereal and desserts. Sesame seeds, ground nuts, and peanuts also contain fats in them and can help in adding that extra pounds you desire. 2. Sometimes loss of appetite may also cause weight loss.

No need to get depressed. That won't help u. I suggest you to opt for a series of steps spaning threw to four months if you like to achieve what you want in a safe n sustainable way. You will require changes in your food habits, life style, carry out do's n do not's and get proper treatment. Herbal tea alone won't help you much. My usp is 3 es: easy, economic, effective advise. For the time being start taking hot/ warm water boiled with chvya, chitrak, sonth, peepal, peeplamool herbs twice a day - 1 full glass twice a day before meals. Consult further for cimplete advise.
