What kind of diet should be followed by a malaria patient, specially when he is vomiting after every intake of food or liquid?
There are no specific diet specifications for people ill with malaria. Since many people feel nauseous and sick to their stomach (as you mentioned) while they are suffering from the disease, it may be hard to get people to eat anything at all. However, it is very important that the patient takes in a lot of fluids (water, diluted juice, herbal tea) in order to keep from getting dehydrated. If they are able to eat small amounts of food, that will also help to keep their strength up. Plain foods such as rice or dry toast may be the easiest for the person to digest, without feeling more nauseous. It is especially important to continue feeding sick infants and children, as they can become dehydrated very quickly, leading to more complications.
