Can Wet Lung Disease Consume Ice?
When you first seek treatment, there is a prohibition … But when you replace lung medicine 2 months 1×3, is that prohibition still valid …?
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The prohibition of consuming ice is actually not absolutely given to sufferers of cough or lung disease of any kind. The beginning of this ban stems from people who cough after consuming ice, or the coughing condition worsens after consuming ice, then cough or lung disease is suspected to be caused by cold food or drinks. But in reality, this is not necessarily due to ice.
Apart from just accidental factors, another explanation that could explain it is that ice (not ice cubes, but ice cream, mixed ice, and the like) has a sweet taste, and this sweetness triggers phlegm production in the throat, and then phlegm can trigger coughing. So coughing after consuming ice does not mean disease, it could just be the body's normal response to the consumption of sweet foods or drinks and it can improve itself over time.
Another possibility is that the ice is made unhygienic, thus increasing the risk of bacterial and viral infections in the body, and causing illness. Of course, in this condition, if ice cubes or other ice that is made remains concerned with cleanliness, disease will not occur.
Therefore regarding your question, again what we want to convey is that if you only consume cold water or ice water which you make your own ice, there is no prohibition for you to consume it. But if your condition is felt to be getting worse by taking it, it would be better if avoided first. So, hopefully answering your question.
