Dengue and alcohol

Recommended Posts

Mate is in hospital with Dengue, Doc says not drink alcohol when discharged, can you get non alcoholic beer etc on Phuket, any suggestions on nice long non alcoholic drinks, do bars have non alcoholic or is it a waste of time thinking they have.

No non-alcoholic beer in Thailand.
 
Soda water as suggested, or soft drinks or fruit juices.
 
Dengue recovery is slow and leaves you pretty washed out. He may not find he's really up to going to bars for a while.
 
Warn him to expect depression during convalesence and it can be severe. They often forget to tell people this. It helps to know it is normal part of the disease.

Just as I experienced. Thankfully it doesn't sound as if the mans had a serious bout. If he fancies a beer he cant be too bad. I wish him well.

I think it's been mild, he has maybe lost a kg or two but no more, he doesn't want to eat because of diarrhoea(not bad) he does fancy beer but will not as doc advised against it, he has been on saline drips and lots of anti biotics plus tablets, and many blood tests, want to see final bill!

Dengue fever is not a bacterial infection it is viral infection so anit-bs will do nothing except push the hospital bill up and make your body more resistant to anti-bs when you DO need them. Best treatment is stay at home, loads of fluids, Tylenol or codein to relieve any headaches....NOT NSAIDs like para or ibuprofen. Maybe next month or year, a nice dose of cannabis will be able to help. If you fancy a beer or two....have them.
Anti biotics are for his diarrhoea.

Sounds like a very very mild case of Dengue.
200K !!!! As in 2000,000 Baht ?
I had quite a bad dose of Dengue lost 10kg in 10 days didn't want a beer for three weeks.
Didn't go to hospital.
Why go to hospital unless your bleeding from any part of your body all they can do is as you've found out give you a crazy bill.
Hope your friend recovers soon and I hope his insurance is in order.
Don't know what the bill is but I'm sure it's going to be 150k up.
