How is the Diet Management?
Patients do not have to eat porridge but the principle is easily refined foods consumed and absorbed. Because the number of calories in porridge 1/6-1/8 value of regular consumption of rice. So naturally when patients continue taking a slurry becomes weak and the longer recovery. However, in patients who are still afraid to consume rice, the patient can eat soft foods or strain, the principle is largely ad libitum diet (based on the will of the patient). These foods should be thoroughly cooked (not hard) or semi-solid. Food is easily absorbed by the characteristics of the intestine physiologically will retire from working too hard. Giving gradually in the interval 2-3 hours will provide adequate nutrition without burdening the gut rather than giving a lot of work at once (a little but often).

My age is 22, but since my childhood I am very weak. I weigh 34kg only. I got jaundice 5 years ago. Now my widal test confirms typhoid. My doctors said my liver is swollen as my SPHGT is 128. Is this situation critical. I don’t have fever but some times I feel so cold and my foots and hands are chilled. I have been feeling weakness since 1 week. Doctor is giving me the following medicine:
*Lycosole -morning & night.
*Opipan-d morning & night
*Zifi-az in morning & night
*Raid capsule at night
is my medication right….! And I am having diaherea too and I am a low blood pressure patient.
Also recommend me hw often should I bath in this condition.
Please suggest me how to take care of myself and suggest
medicines too.
