Why Every Time You Eat Spicy Diarrhea And Chest Tightness In People With Congenital Heart Defects And Polycythaemia?
Hello dokiI am 27 years old, I suffer from congenital heart defects and polycythemia, my question is, why every time I eat chili or that contains chili and spicy flavor, always diarrhea, and sometimes every time I eat spicy food, my chest gets tight. So what does my diarrhea have to do with my heart and polycythemia? Can people who suffer from heart do not eat spicy food? Hopefully the doctor understands my question, thank you
Hello Alfirda, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
everyone has a different response and resistance to spicy food. Chili contains an irritative capsaicin which can irritate the walls of the human digestive tract when consumed at high levels, so this is what can cause diarrhea after consuming chili in some people who have a more sensitive relafit digestive drain.
Congenital heart disease can be of various types ranging from valve abnormalities, anatomical position abnormalities, to heart wall abnormalities. not yet confirmed the existence of a direct link between spicy food and congenital heart disease, the relationship that occurs when consuming spicy foods is that the body's metabolism will increase blood vessels will widen and heart rate will increase. To find out more, it is necessary to do an evaluation related to the type of congenital heart disease that is experienced, therefore you can check yourself to the Cardiologist to get a more complete examination.
so is the connection with polycythemia, where the body produces red blood cells in excess. the symptoms can also vary and one of them is shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, headaches, weakness, nosebleeds, numbness and overload to excessive sweating. it is better if you check yourself with the Internal Medicine Doctor about the condition to get further treatment.
