Fever After Meat Consumption?
I want to ask you to eat a piece of chicken / fish or beef and a fever afterwards is that reasonable? I have experienced it for several months, every time I eat the meat mentioned above, even though it is only one piece, I get fever sometimes directly but it can also be 2 or 3 hours after eating it. If it’s not natural what’s wrong? Even though the meat is cooked and not from the same place.

We understand the discomfort you feel
You need to know that fever is an increase in body temperature regulated by a body thermostat in the hypothalamus of the brain. Fever will appear as a reaction to the body if there are germs that cause infections such as viruses, bacteria, fungi and parasites that enter the body. However, changes in environmental temperature and body conditions such as dehydration can also trigger fever.
Related to your complaints, beef, chicken and fish do not directly cause fever. Unless the food contains germs, symptoms of disorders of the digestive tract such as abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea that can be followed by periods of fever are more common.
In addition, more detailed information is needed related to how your body temperature when a fever is felt after consuming these foods. Fever is defined as an increase in body temperature above 37.5 ° Celsius. If your body temperature is still in the range of 36.5 ° - 37.5 ° Celsius, then it is still in normal conditions. Therefore, measurements are required with a body temperature thermometer when you feel an increase in your body temperature.
Your activity may affect the complaints that you experience. Dehydration or lack of body fluids can also trigger a sudden onset of fever.
You don't need to worry about your condition. When the fever is felt again, immediately consume more fluids, stop activities that are too heavy / tiring, avoid stress, get enough rest and consume fever-reducing medication if needed.
If your condition is getting worse, do not hesitate to do a checkup with the nearest doctor for further evaluation.
Thus the information we can convey, hopefully helps
