4 Food Items To Avoid After Organ Transplantation

4 FOOD ITEMS TO AVOID AFTER ORGAN TRANSPLANTATION

Our bodies are so well-trained to put defense against the foreign substances that they attack everything which comes midst their way— even the new organs which are meant to improve our lives.

It means that our immune system is not a good host, and we have to suppress its action to yield a favorable environment for the new organ to settle them into the “work culture” of the body.

Hence, we intake immunosuppressants— the medical substances which subdue the body’s defense system, thereby allowing the organs to become accustomed to the system.

However, toning down the operation of the immune system lays you naked to the threat of other infection and germs (as you don’t have a robust system to fend off other diseases).

And your poor food source is the primary source of infection and germs, and you can’t go ahead to carry on your routine life without giving them a thought.

Let’s take a look at four food items which you should strictly look over while you are on immunosuppressants.

See seafood from a fair distance.

You’d be spilling water in the name of seafood; howbeit, they are dangerous for your health if you have recently received a new organ and taking immunosuppressant medication.

These food items are likely to contain the variety of bacteria which may contribute to foodborne illness.

Seafood items have Salmonella, Vibrio, Listeria, Shigella, etc. bacterias to name a few, and each poses a potential danger to your health.

Here’s an old but interesting list of seafood and its borne diseases along with the number of deaths. [1]

Meal to avoid: Prawns, Crayfish, shrimp, Squid, Crab, Oysters, Clams, fish, and mussels.

Not meeting the meat until you recover.

Although meat is an excellent source of protein, it’s best to avoid if your body has got new organs, and you don’t want to catch any infection.

Generally, uncooked or raw meat is the place of origin for infectious germs and microbes such as Yersinia, E. coli, Salmonella, and other bacteria.

Probably, it’s why meat is considered as one of the primary causes of foodborne-illnesses such as food poisoning and bovine spongiform encephalitis.

The idea of not meeting with uncooked or raw meat is to minimize the chances of food spoilage.

You can use your sensory organs to smell or check whether the meat doesn’t radiate pungent smell because they may contain bacteria and you should immediately throw it away.

And for the best, you shall avoid them till you completely recover.

Meal to avoid: Lamb, Pork, Beef cattle, Ground beef, etc

Dairy product— no more a daily product.

There’s a myth that no product could beat dairy products when it comes to uplifting your lifestyle; however, dairy products do no good to your health if you have new organs fit into your body, and the immune system is low due to immunosuppressant medication.

There’s a worrying fact that raw or uncooked dairy products may contain a lot of bacterial pathogens which further deteriorate your health condition.

These bacteria can range from Listeria monocytogenes, Salmonella spp, Bacillus cereus, Escherichia coli, Campylobacter jejuni, Yersinia enterocolitica, etc., each good enough to give rise to unwanted infections such as food poisoning.

Some of the studies suggest that growth hormone in the milk also make way for prostate cancer.

Meal to avoid: Cheese, Unpasteurized milk, Uncooked or undercooked eggs, Yogurt, etc.

Move off fruits & vegetables from the dinner table.

Although vegetables are the most important meal which you’d want when you have picked up new organs, they may not be fresh every time.

In fact, you strictly have to avoid certain fruits despite being fresh.

For example, leap a step forward when someone offers you grapefruits and its juices as they have shown possible interaction with immunosuppressants, i.e., they are contraindicated when you are on medics, and taking them may dilute the effect of the medicines. [2]

Furthermore, most of the vegetables have a tint of pesticides which are harmful to the body.

Unwashed or uncleaned vegetables carry bacteria such as E.coli and Salmonella which quickly catch your body and spread in a few minutes.

Meal to avoid: Unwashed fruits, vegetables, salad, sprout, etc
