Nutritionist, gastroenterologist Marina Khorol, in an interview with RT, told how to avoid intestinal infections in the heat.
She emphasized that in the heat, you should eat light food, such as dairy products, be sure to introduce more vegetables and fruits into the diet, since they contain fiber, which contributes to a good cleansing of the gastrointestinal tract.
“In the heat, you shouldn’t eat heavy lamb or pork dishes. Better to eat fish, poultry, rabbit meat. In general, of course, more water, more liquid, so that it is replenished, this is very important for us … And to make sure that the expiration date of each product corresponds: an expired product should never be consumed. Everything should be in the refrigerator, because everything deteriorates very quickly: the pathogenic microflora multiplies very quickly and can cause diarrhea, various diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, ”said the doctor.
Khorol noted that if you experience severe symptoms of poisoning, you need to see a doctor.
“If diarrhea, vomiting reaches five to six times a day, then you should already see a doctor. If this concerns children, then you need to see a doctor immediately, because the body becomes dehydrated and the person may die, this is especially dangerous for the child … In general, you should not self-medicate. Well, plus all these diarrhea can be a sign of a new coronavirus infection, so you shouldn’t take particular risks. A person thinks that he has been poisoned, but in fact it is no longer poisoning, but some kind of serious infection. In addition to COVID-19, there may be other serious diseases such as enterocolitis caused by pathogenic flora. This is something that is no longer amenable to treatment at home, ”the doctor emphasized.
Earlier, forecasters warned about the heat in Moscow until July 13.
