Be careful with these foods if you have gastrointestinal diseases

Must Read

If you suffer from stomach or intestinal diseases, you must be very selective when it comes to eating. Certain foods and drinks — or the ingredients in them — can make you suffer from gastroesophageal reflux than others.

Patients with this condition cannot eat tomatoes, emphasizes the doctor consulted by the Revyuh team.

Tomatoes cause heartburn and acid reflux due to the production of excess gastric acid in the stomach. 

If you are in a risk group for gastrointestinal problems, after consuming them in excess you will feel bitterness and acidity in the mouth, since the stomach contents flood the esophagus. 

It doesn’t matter if you eat them fresh, as a soup, as a fried tomato sauce, or on a pizza, adds the expert.

Not only tomatoes can cause heartburn. Citrus fruits, coffee, chocolate, bakery foods — especially hot flour dough — empanadas, and pizza are on this blacklist. 

The combination of the aforementioned foods could aggravate heartburn, warns the specialist.

Those who have gastrointestinal problems should not eat citrus fruits especially in the period of aggravation of the disease.

The coffee is also contraindicated in this case. The drink should be excluded from the diet of those who suffer from irritable bowel syndrome since caffeine can increase bowel frequency and even the chances of diarrhea.
