Oral sex is an unnatural way of sexual activity and don't force your wife for doing it if she doesn't like it and man on top of women is the correct posture for sexual activity.

Why Platelet Count Decreases in Dengue?

MBBS, MD - General Medicine
General Physician, Gurgaon
Why Platelet Count Decreases in Dengue?

If you are in an area which has a lot of mosquitoes, any fever that is not subsiding in a couple of days is a cause for concern as it can be due to dengue. It is one of the dreadful diseases doing the rounds in the recent years and when someone complains of fever and joint pain problem, the first question we ask if they got checked for dengue. This is caused by a virus that is carried by an infected mosquito.

The blood is made up of 3 types of cells mainly that are in a liquid medium called the plasma. The red blood cells are the oxygen-carrying cells and the white blood cells fight infection and provide immunity. The third type are the platelets, they are smaller than the other two and help in blood clotting. With dengue fever, both the white blood cell count and the platelet count are decreased. Normal platelet count in the body ranges from 1.5 to 4 lacs and in patients with dengue; this can go down to as low as 20,000 to 40,000. This is because of the following:

  • Dengue suppresses bone marrow, which is the platelet-producing area, leading to decreased platelet count.
  • Blood cells affected by dengue virus damage platelets, leading to their drastic fall in numbers
  • Antibodies produced in dengue also lead to massive destruction of platelets

Patient presents with nonspecific symptoms including a high fever that does not subside, vomiting, pain behind the eyes, headache, nausea, and severe muscular and joint pain. The eye pain and the joint pain lead to the suspicion of the dengue fever. Symptoms develop after 4 to 7 days after the bite. The fever lasts for about 5 to 7 days and is followed by a prolonged period of fatigue, joint pains, body pain, and rashes (learn more about Painful Rashes).

For the sake of confirming the diagnosis, the doctor will run some lab tests. These include testing for antibodies IgG and IgM, PCR testing to check the virus and a complete blood count. This will reveal the decrease in the white blood cells and the platelets to a significant degree. Whether or not a person requires platelet transfusion will be decided by the doctor based on the person’s age, immunity levels and severity of the disease.

There isn't a particular level below which a person would require platelet transfusion. In aged people and with people who have other chronic diseases, platelet transfusion may be required even if the blood count is about 50,000. The doctor will decide this based on the patient’s health. The right thing to do is to go for a medical consultation and discuss your situation with the doctor and identify what needs to be done for your condition specifically.

Having a healthy diet containing whole grains and vegetables rich in proteins and vitamins. Sperm levels are at the top of the building in the morning and the afternoon is the best time to make love. Stay away from cigarettes and alcohol. Practice yoga and meditation to be stress free. Try to exercise regularly. Try to maintain a difference of three days between two consecutive ejaculations to remain fertile avoid spicy and sour food acids. Homeopathic treatment increase sperm count without side effects.

B12 deficiency is much higher if you eat a vegetarian or vegan diet. This is because most food sources of b12 come from animal products, such as: dairy products eggs fish meat. Hope this helps you.

Hello Doctor, I'm taking 270 tablets of zolfresh 10 mg daily and I'm also married and still my wife is not able to conceive. Does this mean I have become impotent and will never get a baby. Also I feel my penis size is too small, even my wife use to say why your penis is too small. I feel very ashamed when she asks that question. Also, she says that she does not even feel anything while having intercourse. Kindly help me to get out of all my problems and please help me to become a good father. Seeking your help,

The maximum dosage of Zolfresh that can be prescribed is 10 mg once daily. You wrote "270" tablets of Zolfresh daily. I am sure it must be a typographical error. Please mention the correct dose. Higher doses of Zolfresh can cause Dizziness, headache and drowsiness. Please use this medicine responsibly. If you are not able to conceive after having unprotected sex even after a year of marriage, my advice would be to contact a good fertility centre/gynaecologist near your area. The tests will be able to help you in finding the exact cause of infertility.

Lybrate-user, there are equally good sources of calcium -- greens and beans. And milk is harming people more than it is doing any good. There are enough medical published studies - supporting the point of view you expressed that milk may be harming people and may be causing us to lose bones! shocking as it may sound -- this is what the science does say!
