Nausea After Eating Fishy Food?
My mother has been sick for a few weeks after eating meat and eggs. why is that? Never before. thank you
Thank you for the question.
Consumption of meat and eggs should not trigger nausea, except in people who are allergic to these 2 types of food. Meat and eggs can also trigger nausea if processed with oil, chili sauce, or excessive coconut milk. However, aside from the type of food consumed, nausea that your mother experiences may also arise due to other triggers, such as:
Digestive disorders, such as dyspepsia, digestive infections, food malabsorption, poisoning, inflammation of the intestine
Urinary tract disorders, for example due to infections, stones
Liver disorders, for example due to hepatitis, alcoholism
Others, for example viral or bacterial infections of other organ systems, hormonal fluctuations, migraines, psychological disorders, side effects of drugs, and so on
This nausea is often not dangerous as long as it does not appear accompanied by other more severe complaints, for example fever, vomiting, spasms, urination disorders, yellow, and so on. You can encourage your mother to:
Eat a little but often and regularly
Don't eat foods that trigger nausea, including spicy, oily, coconut milk, and excessive gassing
Not too excessive consumption of soft drinks and caffeinated
Don't eat raw, undercooked food, especially if the processing is not hygienic
If there is a certain food or drink allergy, don't consume it too
Drink more water, can also add ginger so that nausea is reduced
Rest more, don't stress too much or worry too much
Live a healthy lifestyle, do not consume alcohol
If nausea does not improve with the above efforts, or if other complaints appear more severe as mentioned above, do not hesitate to check your mother directly to the doctor or specialist in internal medicine so that it is handled properly according to the cause, yes.
I hope this helps.
