Pre-existing diet

As you know, people will have a slight increase in body temperature after eating.

This is because when the food is oxidized and decomposed in the body, in addition to releasing heat energy itself, it will increase the basal metabolic rate of the human body (the body needs to perform activities such as breathing, heartbeat, blood circulation, etc. under static conditions).To stimulate the body to produce extra radiation.

銆€銆€This stimulating effect of food is medically known as the special kinetic effect of food.

This effect is independent of the total amount of food consumed, and is related to the type of food.

For example, eating carbohydrates can increase the basal metabolic rate by 5%-6%; eating snacks increases the basal metabolic rate by 3%-4%, while lasting only about 1 hour.

Eating protein affects resistance, increases basal metabolic rate by 15%-30%, and can penetrate for a duration of up to 10-12 hours.

銆€銆€The protein content in eggs is high. When patients have a fever, they can not only lower their body temperature, but cause the body temperature to rise, which is not conducive to the recovery of the disease.

With this in mind, other high-protein foods such as lean meat, fish, etc. should be eaten as little as possible when patients have a fever.

銆€銆€The diet of elderly patients with fever should be light, digestible, and rich in vitamins, usually based on liquid or semi-liquid foods, such as rice soup, porridge, noodles, lotus root starch, etc., with some fresh fruit.

Protein is an essential substance for body repair. After the patient has a fever, he can eat half-liquid food such as chicken noodle soup and vegetable porridge. When the condition is restored, you can add high-protein foods such as lean meat, fish and tofu to promote the body.get well soon.
