Can You Not Eat Bananas During Typhoid And Dengue Fever?
and what foods can be consumed and not consumed?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Typhus (typhoid fever) and DHF (dengue fever, dengue hemorrhagic fever) are both diseases caused by infection. The difference is that typhus is caused by Salmonella typhi bacterial infection, while DHF is caused by dengue virus infection. Both of these diseases can both cause sufferers to experience fever. Not only that, typhus and DHF sufferers often complain of a variety of other symptoms, for example nausea, dizziness, headaches, stomach cramps, bowel obstruction, skin rashes, weakness, fatigue, fatigue, and so on.
Because of different causes, the treatment of typhus and DHF is clearly different. However, in some conditions, these two diseases can occur simultaneously. In cases like this, doctors will often give several types of drugs or also recommend patients to undergo hospitalization in the hospital for more in-depth observation.
Adequate nutritional intake is very important role in supporting the recovery of patients from typhus and DHF. In order for the patient's immune system to improve and symptoms will also be reduced, in addition to undergoing treatment as directed by doctors, sufferers should also pay attention to the types of food and drinks they consume. Here are some recommended dietary patterns that should be followed in patients with typhus and DHF:
Eat small but regular meals (3 to 4 hours)
Not eating foods that are too acidic, too spicy, coconut milk, fatty, oily, and high in gas (for example mustard greens, cabbage, tubers)
Also do not consume food that is not cooked or processed unhygienic
Avoid the habit of consuming excessive food and instant drinks
Also reduce the consumption of caffeinated drinks
Expand first to eat foods that are easily digested, for example porridge, broth food
Drink plenty of water
Do not consume alcohol or drugs carelessly (except those prescribed by a doctor)
There is no absolute prohibition for typhus and DHF sufferers to consume bananas. However, excessive consumption of bananas often aggravate nausea, so it is feared that it will further reduce the patient's appetite, so it should indeed be avoided.
Furthermore, you should consult with your doctor, internal medicine specialist, or nutritionist regarding the right diet for typhus and DHF sufferers.
I hope this helps.
