Does a person with cerebral malaria and jaundice require a special diet.
Q: What is the correct kind of diet, given to a patient having cerebral malaria with chronic jaundice?
A:Cerebral malaria is a condition, which will require the patient to be under the care of a hospital. A person having this could exhibit a wide range of symptoms, and the kind of diet and treatment would depend on those symptoms. This would be best handled only after consultation with the doctor, as no generalisation would be possible. If fluids are being given intravenously, careful attention should be paid to fluid balance to avoid over- and under hydration. A rapid initial check of blood glucose level and frequent monitoring for hypoglycaemia are important, when possible. Otherwise, glucose should be given.
