Food For Patients With Prolonged Coughing Cough?
At noon, my father coughed up phlegm for 6 months, had not healed, was already checked out and asked for sputum checks, about anything that was not allowed to be consumed.
Thank you for the question.
Sputum cough that does not heal in adults most often arises due to respiratory distress, such as pulmonary tuberculosis, chronic bronchitis, asthma, pleural effusion, lung cancer, allergies, pneumonia, rhinosinusitis, and so on. It could also, phlegm cough arises because of disorders in other organ systems, such as gastroesophageal reflux disease, gastritis, congestive heart failure, side effects of certain drugs, immune disorders, and so on.
Sputum checks are needed in people with cough with phlegm primarily to evaluate the possibility of pulmonary tuberculosis (TB, spots) which indeed the prevalence is quite high in our country. Often, this examination will be balanced also with other supporting tests, such as blood tests and x-rays. That way, of course the handling can be done on target.
For sufferers of cough with phlegm that does not heal, the following eating and drinking patterns are recommended:
Avoid foods and drinks that are too cold, oily, berampas, and contain excessive artificial sweeteners
Avoid foods and drinks that cause allergies
Eat small portions but often and regularly
Interspersed eating time by consuming fruits rich in vitamin C
Drink more water, you can also add lemon juice or ginger
In addition to maintaining a healthy diet, longtime cough sufferers are also advised to always wear a mask, avoid exposure to cold and dry air, avoid exposure to other allergens (including pollen and animal dander), don't smoke, stay away from cigarette smoke, exercise regularly, and get enough rest so that the disease healed faster.
More related to the examination and treatment that can be done on patients with long-standing cough, you should consult directly with a doctor or doctor of internal medicine who treats your father huh ..
I hope this helps.
