Can I Take A Shower Or Sleep After Eating?
Doctor, can I take a shower after eating? if not, what is the impact?rnNext I want to ask what happens if after eating we sleep? please explain.
You can take a shower after eating. There is no danger if after eating then immediately take a shower. The food consumed will enter the digestive tract, while bathing only cleanses the external body. These two things are not related.
What you need to pay attention to is sleeping after eating. It is highly recommended not to sleep after eating and if you want to lie down should be given a break of at least 1-2 hours after eating. This is because sleeping after eating can increase the risk of recurrence of acid reflux disease, weight gain and obesity, and increase the risk of airway obstruction during sleep (a risk factor for stroke).
Thus, after eating, feel free to take a shower, there is no problem, but if you want to sleep, wait 1-2 hours after eating.
