Can people with lupus sle consume Chinese teak tea?
Hello Dwi Amanda :)
Thank you for the question.
Lupus or SLE is a chronic inflammatory disease in the body caused by an autoimmune process, which is where our immune cells attack other healthy cells in our own body. There are many organs that are targeted by this disease, such as skin, joints, blood cells, kidneys, and lungs.
Patients with lupus will usually receive treatment to suppress our immune system so that immune cells will not attack other body cells, and also anti-inflammatory drugs that also reduce our immune system, such as corticosteroids. Therefore, our immune system will become lower to protect ourselves from inflammation, so that nutrient intake is very important to maintain the immune system so it does not go down.
Basically there are no specific restrictions for sufferers of lupus, but it is recommended not to eat / drink containing food / drinks that can trigger inflammation, especially inflammation in the digestive tract, such as foods that are too spicy, sour, caffeine such as coffee, tea, chocolate, soda, and energy drinks.
Do not forget to improve your lifestyle with regular exercise 3-5x per week, avoid cigarettes and alcohol, avoid stress, and avoid excessive sun exposure, so you continue to be healthy always :)
Hope this helps.
