Pain Urinating After Eating Jengkol
Sorry doc, want to ask. What to do if you experience pain when urinating because you had time to eat jengkol which is quite a lot ?? Thank you
Hello Egi, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Pain during urination after consumption of jengkol caused by excessive consumption is called jengkol poisoning. In jengkol there is a compound called jengkolat acid which at high concentrations can cause crystals to form. These sharp-shaped crystals cause pain when released through the urethra.
To overcome this will depend on the complaint you feel. Examination may be needed to see the extent of severity that occurs. Handling of mild jengkol poisoning is done by giving hydration / fluid and relieve pain that occurs. If the situation is severe, treatment is carried out by giving sodium bicarbonate to neutralize the acid. Therefore it is very important to see a doctor immediately to get further treatment.
That's all, hope it helps.
