Don’t let Dengue bite into your health

Dengue is back —with a dramatic increase in number of cases in southern Tamil Nadu and Kerala.

Dengue is the fastest-growing mosquito-borne viral infection and has no specific treatment. Dengue fever is usually a self-limited illness lasting for 2 to 7 days. While supportive care, fluid replacement, and rest is usually sufficient, there can be complications such as bleeding if the platelet count drops below 20,000. Carica Papaya leaf extract is is found to be useful in increasing the platelet count and many Indian pharma companies have launched products with this ingredient.

However, claiming that products containing carica papaya leaf extracts are a ‘cure’ for dengue fever is far fetched. While this ingredient can improve the platelet count, patients suffering from dengue fever may not be able to assimilate the ingredient or other medicines because their digestive system is weak. A comprehensive treatment of Dengue must

  • Increase Platelet Count
  • Build Immunity & Fight infections
  • Regulate Body Temperature & Relieve Symptoms
  • Improve Appetite
  • Improve metabolism to make the medicines bio-available
