Dangers Of Cinnamon In Patients With Swelling Of The Spleen?
Doctor, is it true that cinnamon should not be consumed by people with swelling of the spleen?
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Cinnamon is not only used as a cooking spice, but also as an aroma enhancer in coffee and as a cake fragrance. In terms of health, cinnamon also provides many benefits, including:
Protects skin from mosquito bites Reduces blood sugar levels in diabetics Reduces the risk of heart disease Fights various types of infections Prevents tooth decay Reduces bad breath
Even so, among the side effects that can be caused by cinnamon are experiencing blood sugar levels that are too low, respiratory problems, worsening liver dysfunction, and irritation or sores on the mouth and lips. Regarding your question, so far there has not been enough research to look at the direct effect of cinnamon consumption on people with swelling of the spleen. However, if the swelling of the spleen that you are experiencing is caused by or has something to do with decreased liver function, then obviously you should not consume cinnamon because one of the effects is clear, namely worsening liver disorders.
Our advice, discuss again with the doctor who has been treating you about what you can and shouldn't consume, to avoid misunderstandings, and always live a healthy lifestyle by eating nutrient-rich foods such as vegetables and fruit and avoiding stress and cigarette smoke. We wish you and your family good health.
That's all, hope it helps.
