Fruits contain a minimum amount of fats and carbohydrates, so they are consumed by people with diabetes mellitus or atherosclerosis. Doctors recommend adding eggplant to the diet if there are problems with the liver: it reduces puffiness.
Vegetable culture increases the overall tone of the body. It contains fiber, which helps fight dysbiosis and normalizes the intestinal microflora.
For diseases of the digestive tract, follow a diet selected by the doctor. Eggplant in pancreatitis is an approved product, but it takes into account the form and extent of the disease.
Eggplant in acute pancreatitis
Eggplant in pancreatitis has a healing effect on the body, but they are consumed only in remission. Eggplant and pancreatitis with exacerbation of inflammation are not compatible. Doctors prohibit adding them to the diet for acute pancreatitis, because they contain substances that activate trypsinogen and increase inflammation. These substances include:
- ascorbic acid.
The use of a vegetable enhances bile secretion, and with the discoordinated operation of the valve apparatus, bile enters the pancreatic ducts and activates proenzymes.
One fruit contains 2.5 g of fiber, which in acute inflammation of the pancreas causes diarrhea and flatulence. A high content of plant fiber enhances gastric motility. This process in acute pancreatitis leads to gas formation and cramping in the intestine.
The use of vegetables in the acute period of the disease exacerbates the well-being of a person due to increased pain. The development of pancreatic necrosis is possible: the defense mechanism is violated, the pancreas begins to digest itself.
