Can I Eat Meatballs And Satay For Ulcer Sufferers?
Doctor, I have an intermediate stage of gastric ulcer. I don’t really know if I can actually eat meatballs and satay without peanut sauce or not. Explanation please. I just ate 1 piece of meatball. And yesterday I ate 7 skewers without seasoning. :'(
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Heartburn is usually a term used by ordinary people to describe dyspepsia syndrome. This condition is actually not always related to problems in the stomach (ulcer), but can also arise due to disorders in the esophagus, bile duct, pancreas, duodenum, and so on.
Most cases of dyspepsia have no clear cause. However, a small proportion of dyspepsia can occur in association with certain organic disorders, such as gastritis (inflammation of the gastric mucosa), stomach ulcers, cholangitis (inflammation of the gallbladder), cholelithiasis (gallstones), pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas), GERD (reflux of stomach acid into the esophagus). , etc.
There is no absolute prohibition for people with dyspepsia syndrome to consume meatballs or satay. However, you should still not consume it in excess, especially on an empty stomach. This is because the acidic nature of the satay and the flavoring content that is often used to process meatballs may trigger symptoms of increased stomach acid in some sensitive people. Complaints can also get worse if you consume the satay or meatballs with chili sauce, spices, or spicy sauce. If your dyspepsia syndrome appears related to bile duct disorders (eg cholangitis, cholelithiasis), then the complaint can also worsen with the consumption of satay or meatballs because of the high fat content in them.
If after consuming the meatballs and satay you don't experience any complaints, then you don't need to worry. However, if you feel uncomfortable sensations, especially in the upper abdomen, for example in the form of nausea, stinging, pain, gas, bloating, tightness, or lumps, you should first take stomach acid neutralizing drugs on an empty stomach (usually 30 minutes before eating). ). Drink lots of warm water and get used to eating small portions but often. Expand first to rest and avoid excessive stress. If the complaint does not improve after undergoing the above efforts, you can immediately consult a doctor for further treatment.
I hope this helps.
