Typhoid is often passed on through contaminated food and water. It is more prevalent in places where handwashing is less frequent and where sanitation facilities are poor.
The two major symptoms of typhoid are fever and rash. Other symptoms can include weakness, abdominal pain, constipation and headache.
If typhoid is caught early, it can be successfully treated with antibiotics. However, if it is not treated, typhoid can be fatal. Thus it is necessary to follow proper guidelines and measures if one is suffering from the infection.
Moreover, a proper diet must be followed as the body is weak in course of recovery and needs adequate nutrition. Here is a look at what foods must be avoided and consumed when suffering from Typhoid.
What to avoid?
8. Raw food
Avoid raw, unpeeled fruits and vegetables that may have been washed with contaminated water, especially lettuce and fruits like berries that can’t be peeled. Bananas, avocados, and oranges make better choices, but be sure you peel them yourself.
