Have chronic nephritis
In the far end, there have been reports of poisoning in patients with chronic nephritis after taking star fruit.
After the so-called poisoning, the patient developed intractable inverse symptoms, numbness of the limbs, decreased muscle strength, abnormal skin feeling, insomnia, excitement, mental disturbance, seizures, coma, diarrhea, hematuria and other symptoms of poisoning.
Some scholars have suggested that this phenomenon may be related to the allergic reaction caused by starfruit, or it may be related to the fact that starfruit contains an oxide substance, which is likely to cause neurotoxicity.
Associate Professor Chen Chaogang, director of the Clinical Nutrition Department of Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hospital of Sun Yat-sen University, said that the above statement was not mentioned in general textbooks, and no related scientific research reports were seen, just the observation of some scholars.
However, to be on the safe side, it is better for patients with kidney disease to avoid eating carambola.
Some people have a bad stomach. Eating too much star fruit may cause diarrhea and bloating, which is related to this stomach.
Carambola, like other fruits, contains vitamin C, minerals, and metabolic fibers that the body needs, which can help prevent constipation, improve the body’s antioxidant capacity, improve the body’s immunity, and strengthen the body’s disease resistance.
Traditionally, carambola is sweet and sour, has coldness, and has the functions of clearing heat, regenerating Jin, water, and detoxifying, but the spleen and stomach are cold, the appetite is poor and those with diarrhea should not eat more.
