Food Abstinence In Typhus Sufferers?
So this is it, I want to ask a question so a few weeks ago I had typhus symptoms and thank God recently I have had frequent bowel movements and the feces are not as bad as before but now I feel a little feverish when I sleep but when I move a lot I even It’s a bit better (not too feverish) and also I’m still a little limp I want to ask about my appetite I have added I want that I want this is the ban on food during yesterday’s typhus can be eaten ?? For example, the food that I mean might be oily foods such as fried tofu with fried tempeh using flour and other dishes that are eaten with oil and also during diarrhea, you should always eat soft food, is it okay to eat the opposite now? and what is the solution so that body is not weak, thank you
Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Typhus, typhus or typhoid fever, is a disease caused by the bacteria Salmonella typhii. These bacteria usually enter the body through contaminated food and drink. People with this disease usually feel symptoms in the form of fever fluctuating, where the body temperature is highest starting in the afternoon and evening and then falling again in the morning and noon, although not to normal. Other symptoms that sufferers can feel are diarrhea, abdominal pain, dizziness, difficulty defecating and a dirty white tongue.
Among the factors that increase the risk of developing this condition are:
Eating contaminated food and or drink
Poor body and environmental hygiene
The difficulty of getting access to clean water
Do not make it a habit to wash your hands before and after eating or after touching something dirty
Have oral sex with sufferers
In your case, maybe your body is still not fully recovered which is marked by fever and weakness that persist even though it has subsided from the first time. But for weakness, there are various causes, such as lack of nutrition, low blood sugar levels, lack of red blood cells, viral or bacterial infections, lack of sleep, low blood pressure and the like. So that if you feel the weakness that you feel is not getting better, you should check with the doctor who previously treated you to be able to determine the exact cause of the weakness you feel.
Regarding food, as we said earlier, among the symptoms of typhus there are those that attack the digestive system such as diarrhea and abdominal pain. Some foods such as oily, spicy and acidic foods are abstained because these foods have the potential to worsen the condition. If you now have no stomach pain, diarrhea, or feel better overall, you can start eating these foods again gradually. When the complaints come back, then avoid these foods again, or safer just wait until you fully recover.
Meanwhile, get plenty of rest, keep your body and environment clean, wash your hands regularly, pay attention to the cleanliness of the food or drinks you want to consume, drink more mineral water, vegetables and fruit, and avoid stress and cigarette smoke. Get well soon.
That's all, hope it helps.
