what should be the diagnosis for loss of appetite,fever. No bloody diarrhea with no vomiting or shaking chills occurred?

Loss of appetite and fever are usually accompanied with abdominal pain. These symptoms can be associated with several health disorders. The exact health disorder that you have can only be diagnosed by a certified health care practitioner. If you are lucky enough, the fever and loss of appetite could be a result of mild stomach infections. Indigestion or acidity could also cause these symptoms; however, there could be severe implications of these symptoms too. Some of the diseases that you could have contracted are hepatitis, pancreatitis, leptospirosis, cytomegalovirus, bruncellosis or mononucleosis.

If you have severe stomach pain, you could also be suffering from appendicitis and a quick surgery to remove the appendix is very necessary to relieve you of the pain. While you may have any of the conditions that are mentioned above, it is most likely that you are suffering from hepatitis. Hepatitis A is a liver condition that can affect anyone. Though there is vaccine widely available for this disease, it is easy communicated and has resulted in epidemics in the past.

Hepatitis A is usually accompanied by jaundice, loss of appetite, abdominal pain, unusual fatigue, fever and even diarrhea. The good news is that it is completely treatable and there are no long term infections associated with Hepatitis A. However, the disease also gets relapsed pretty easily so the utmost care has to be taken in personal hygiene and also food and water that you take.

Hepatitis B on the other hand is more serious in nature. Hepatitis B is also characterized by virus attacks on the liver and the virus in this case can leave a person with a lifelong infection, including Cirrhosis of the liver, cancer and even death. About 30% of the afflicted do not show any signs or symptoms of being diseased. This is true especially for children. When the signs and symptoms do appear, they resemble hepatitis A a lot. Only clinical tests can set the two apart. In Hepatitis B, at a later stage, the patient may even complain of joint pains.

Hepatitis B, much like HIV, is passed through contaminated blood. Blood transfusion and unprotected sex with an infected person are the major modes of transmission. To protect yourself from Hepatitis B, vaccine is the best option. With that, be mindful about having multiple sexual partners. If you are not much familiar with the medical history of your partner, insist on using condoms. If you are a pregnant mother, you could pass on the infection to your baby, so get yourself thoroughly checked and get yourself treated.

Diagnosis of Loss of Appetite, Fever and Abdominal Pain

The symptoms that you are talking about are associated with various health disorders. Fever and loss of appetite can be a result of minor infections or usual health conditions such as cough, indigestion or acidity. But the pain that you are talking about makes your case something different. A combination of these three symptoms has to be diagnosed with care and concern.

When it comes to abdominal pain, the pain is categorized into upper abdominal pain and central abdominal pain. Based on these abdominal pains, the causes of your symptoms can be diagnosed. But as I am not sure for the exact area of pain, I can only help you with some usual causes of abdominal pain, fever and loss of appetite.

Abdominal pain, fever and loss of appetite can be a result of hepatitis, infectious monoucleosis, bruncellosis, alcoholic hepatitis, pancreatitis, cytomegalovirus and leptospirosis if the pain is in the right upper abdomen. If the pain radiates in the center of your abdomen, then you are likely to suffer from appendicitis, an inflammation in the appendix. The symptoms can even be diagnosed as ulcer if the pain is in the upper central abdomen. Clinically there are various ways to diagnose these health conditions. Most common among them are metabolic test, lipase test and hepatitis test.

I would advise you to check with your doctor for diagnosing the right disease and provide effective treatments for the same.
