Effect Of Squid On Stomach Acid That Recurs?
Hello, I am a chronic ulcer. When my illness recurred and I ate squid, my chest was very tight. Does eating squid have an effect on heartburn?
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Ulcer disease, or which in medical language is called dyspepsia is a disease characterized by pain or heat in the stomach that can arise because it is caused by a variety of conditions, including injuries to the stomach, consumption of anti-inflammatory drugs, bacterial infections, consumption of food spicy, sour or oily, chocolate, drinks such as coffee and tea, stress, fatigue, cigarette smoke, eating too fast and too much, late eating and the presence of gallstones.
So regarding your question, squid can cause a recurrence of heartburn not because of the squid itself but maybe how to cook the squid. If, for example, squid is cooked with balado, or rica-rica or Padang spices which in fact are spicy, squid may cause stomach ulcers. But not the squid but the spiciness. Heartburn can also feel worse when it happens. That is, the cumin itself may not be spicy, not acidic nor fried so that it is not greasy, but you consume it when your stomach ulcers are already recurrent - for example because of late eating, then you will still be able to experience symptoms such as nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.
Therefore, the best step is to avoid the originator by not holding back hunger, not consuming spicy food, not drinking coffee, avoiding stress and so on, which we mentioned earlier. Meanwhile, if you have avoided that, but the complaint is still permanent, our advice should you consult a doctor of internal medicine for further examination and see whether there is a possibility of structural diseases such as injuries to the stomach or a portion of the stomach into the chest cavity. The handling will be different and will be adjusted to your condition. So, hopefully answering your question.
