Is it possible to eat sweets when the chickenpox?
Hello, dear visitors of dermatology. Agree, all of us in the shower is a sweet tooth. It is especially difficult to do without sweets for the kiddies. What to do if a child or adult chicken pox there where suffering is assigned the diet? Is it possible sweets? After reading the article, you will know the answer and understand why.
Ill have chicken pox weakens the immune system. Any malicious factors can develop complications. The body is in a weakened state does not have time to digest those unhealthy but delicious foods, which normally did before.
Ill of the above, the pox is prohibited fat, meals with spices, roasted, can cause allergies and any sweets. Here is the answer to the question.
Why Goodies-sweets are prohibited?
The threat in such products is sweet carbohydrates. They are found in starchy foods (buns, pies, cakes, etc.), candy, sugar. What can make these carbs with the body ailing? Lot of negative, for example:
- strengthen the inflammation;
- enhance itching;
- to increase the sensitivity of the skin;
- to provoke the emergence of a new rash;
- to trigger the development of an allergic rash.
Why is everything so unfair to ask of a sweet tooth. But because the carbohydrates in our body perform the energy function. The sugar is the best vospalitel energy.
When the human condition is normal, this product in moderation, even helpful, as due to the active lifestyle the body requires more energy. But when he hurts, so much energy it is no longer required. Excess energy will not be absorbed by the body.
Consequently, the sugar will no longer be cleaved. Because of this, the sugar will circulate in your blood and to increase the level of insulin. And suffering from chicken pox is very dangerous.
Sweets — double the load on the brain
Pox in adults sometimes ends up with complications on the brain. It is extremely life-threatening complication, which is treated hard and long. Sugar in this situation brings the risk of inflammation of the brain, as it also has the ability to adversely affect this important organ.
Scientists have found that an overload of sugar with the chicken pox can lead to the syndrome of Laforêt. This is a disease in which glycogen is deposited in brain cells. The result of such violations may be:
- epileptic seizures;
- loss of coordination;
- dementia and other mental problems.
In children, chickenpox often occurs in the form of light. But for them sweet during this disease dangerous. Do you wonder why? Because most kids are prone to allergic reactions.
Sugar may provoke the emergence of new allergic rash, itching and strengthen due to the fact that the child’s body after consumption of sugary foods is excited.
What to do if you really want sweetie?
Here we found out why sugar-containing products to patients varicella is contraindicated. Now I will talk about what to replace the standard buns, cakes and chocolates.
