Causes Bleeding Gums When Eating Bananas?
Hello, why do I bleed when I eat gum gum? And how do you keep your gums from bleeding if you eat bananas? Thank you
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically, bananas are very soft fruits and very rarely cause allergic reactions. Even so, bananas are indeed one of the fruits that have proteolytic enzymes in them (enzymes that can break down proteins), so that in some people who eat certain types of bananas, discomfort in the mouth can occur. Although in some people this proteolytic enzyme can cause discomfort in the mouth when consuming bananas, but it is not clearly known that this enzyme can cause sores to bleed gums. If your gums are easily injured just by eating bananas, the most likely thing to happen is that you do have certain problems with your teeth or gums (such as a dental infection or inflammation of the gums / gingivitis). If indeed your gums only bleed when you eat bananas and indeed there are no specific problems found in your teeth and gums, then chances are you have an allergy to bananas.
To be able to ensure the presence or absence of certain problems in your teeth and gums, you should consult your dentist. If there really is a problem with the teeth and gums, the doctor will take care to overcome these problems and you can see again if your gums still bleed frequently when eating bananas. If indeed there are no specific problems found in the teeth and gums, then you should avoid eating banana-pisangan and choose other fruits to supplement your daily food.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
