Street food lover hospitalized after getting three types of bacteria

Most of us love and enjoy eating some street foods and many are having it almost everyday. Well, who would not want it if it tastes good anyway. Even if a lot of precautions and awareness are given about eating street foods, some won’t really be stopped and still continues to eat it.

A lady who happened to love eating street foods confessed something that would surely help you realize from now to lessen or just stop eating street foods. She confessed it for the awareness of everybody and that no one would experience the painful thing that she got.

Henschel Ann Quinto, posted on her Facebook account how she got some monsters inside her body. She just recently discovered that she got this “Amoeba Disease”, which can be get from eating dirty foods like street foods. She was so sick when she got this parasites in her body.

When you have this Amoeba disease, what is present in your body is not bacteria but parasites. What is common is having 1 parasite in the body if you have this disease, and 2 parasites in rare, but in her case she got the worst for having 3 parasites.

She stated that she had a great pain in her tummy and when she defecated, she had a watery discharge and notice some blood on it. She didn’t mind about it and just think she has a diarrhea. She just bore the pain not knowing she has something inside her body. But when her body temperature got higher, that was the time she was brought into the hospital and was diagnosed having an “Amoeba disease”.

The doctors advised her to have potassium and sodium intake, a water and a pocari sweat drink for her not to be dehydrated. She isn’t allowed to be dehydrated, control her defecation, and forget to take her medicine. If not, the parasites would go through the kidney then to the lungs and that’s fatal. Since her urine is concentrated, she have to drink more of pocari sweat to cleanse it.

According to her, what she is experiencing now is truly a great pain, she has to drink and eat with potassium and sodium and drink a lot of medicines prescribed by her doctor. She is encouraging everyone to just stop eating street foods especially if dirty. She also emphasized that she is not discrediting those vendors but is just concerned of the health and safety of others not to be like her.

Read her full story here, it’s quite long but it’s worth reading to save your life:

“There are Monsters Inside My Body.”
Share ko lang para aware kayo sa mga kinakain niyo po. It’s up to you kung babasahin niyo since madrama at mahaba po ito ✌️ Ingat sa pagkain ng street foods bes.
For the past few days, these things were the content of my stomach, puro Sodium and Potassium. Except the alcohol though Hindi naman iniinom yan Syempre kailangan yan for sanitizing purposes diba? ✌️ It’s really hard to be sick Hindi naman malala yung sakit ko kaya wag O.A Pero mahirap, syempre wala naman na madaling sakit eh.

I recently discovered na, I have this so called “Amoeba Disease” nakukuha yan sa mga maduduming pagkain like street foods. And yes, mahilig akong kumain ng mga street foods, masarap kasi Halos lahat naman tayo kumakain nun. Kaso, look what happened to me? Nakakuha ng parasites ng wala sa oras bes. Oo, parasiteS with capital “S”. Kasi hindi bacteria ang nakuha “parasite” po, ibig sabihin mas malala sa bacteria and madami sila sa loob ng katawan ko.
Last week, thursday midnight, I was sleeping ng makaramdam ako na parang na dudumi. My tummy was aching so crazy then sobrang matubig ang lumabas nung magbawas ako then nakita ko na parang may blood dun sa dumi. I felt nervous, I was afraid Pero I just shrugged the thought and crawled back to my bed and slept Kinabukasan, same pa din. Naisip ko na baka diarrhea, may nakain siguro ako na nakasira sa tiyan ko. Hindi ko ulit pinansin.

Pero nung saturday pagkauwi ko ng tanghali galing sa bible study, napatakbo na ko sa c.r kasi ang sakit sakit talaga ng tiyan ko. And same pa rin ang nangyari. Nag pahinga ako sa sofa tapos feeling ko lalagnatin ako kasi nilalamig ako. Ayun, may sinat na ko nung hapon

Sunday ng natuluyan akong lagnatin. Dumalo pa ko sa Kingdomhall kasi sayang naman kung hindi ako makakadalo eh, nag sagot pa naman ako ng “Bantayan” kahit masama pakiramdam ko. Well, for Jehovah naman kaya I’m happy. But it turns out na, hindi din ako masyadong nakinabang kasi ang sama talaga ng pakiramdam ko at antok na antok ako

Pag-uwi namin, pinagpahinga na ko nina mama at papa sa kwarto ko. Nung nilalagnat ako, I thought “trangkaso siguro dala ng pagod” kasi ang sakit ng kalamnan ko at nanlalambot na ko. And minutes after while laying on my bed, I felt so cold, my head and body were both aching, my breathing was heavy and my hands and feet were shaking. Tiniis ko, kasi kakainom ko lang ng gamot. I endured it for I think, 15 mins? Then I panicked because my body froze and I can’t move. I shouted but that wasn’t enough since nasa baba sila at nasa taas ako ng kwarto ko. Garalgal pa yung boses ko. Yung kapatid ko ang tumawag kina mama. I cried out loud. Panicked were written all over their face. Kaya ayun, sinugod ako sa hospital

38.1 degrees yung lagnat ko ng bumaba na dahil pinainom ako ng gamot. So, ibig sabihin mas mataas pa yun kung hindi dahil sa gamot siguro nasa 39 degrees na and that’s not normal. Nag pa-laboratory test ako, kumuha ng ihi, dumi at dugo.

Nagulat yung doctor ng makita yung result nung test. As in namilog ang mata! Paano ba naman 3 types of parasites daw ang nasa loob ng katawan ko. Normally daw kasi 1 type lang ng parasite sa katawan pag may “Amoeba” madami na daw yung 2 at bihira lang daw yung ganun. Pero yung akin daw 3! Sobrang dami! Sobrang dumi daw ng kinain ko

Puro may potassium and sodium ang pinakakain at pinapainom sakin. Okay lang din daw na tubig ang inumin kaso mas kelangan ko daw Pocari Sweat kasi may sodium and potassium. Bawal ma-dehydrate, bawal pigilin ang dumi. Bawal makalimutan uminom ng gamot kasi didiretso na yung parasites sa kidney then didiretso sa lungs at yun ang nakakamatay. And the good thing is naagapan. Kelangan iinom agad ng Pocari para mapalitan ang mga inilabas ko at para hindi ako ma-dehydrate. Dahil once na hindi ako maihi, ico-confine ako para ma-dextrose at baka mag shut down ang kidney ko at ma-dialysis. Since concentrated daw ang ihi ko

Sobrang hirap lang kasi sobrang pakla at mapait ang panlasa ko ngayon dahil sa gamot na tine-take ko. Nasusuka ako tuwing iinom ng gamot, nangangasim ako Side effect kasi. Walang ganang kumain kasi lasang metal ang panglasa ko. Masakit sa tiyan pag dumudumi. Ilang araw pang titiisin Ganun talaga, ako may kasalanan nito eh. Na tsambahan ako nung kinain ko. Tiis-tiis din

Sobrang taas na lagnat, sobrang sakit ng ulo na feeling mo lumilindol dahil sa hilo, sobrang masakit na kalamnan at katawan na parang nabugbog, sobrang masakit na tiyan na para kang hihimatayin sa sakit pag dumudumi, stiff neck, sensitivity to light sobrang nasisilaw ako at masakit sa ulo yun, kaya yung mata ko naniningkit at masakit na sikmura tuwing iinom ng gamot. Yan lahat ang naramdaman ko

Kung naranasan niyo ng magka-trangkaso, doble or triple ang mararamdaman niyo once na nagkaroon kayo ng “Amoeba Disease.” Hindi na maalis yan sa katawan mo, “patutulugin” lang yan ng gamot kaya pag may nakain ka ulit na maduming pagkain, naku bes si “parasites and bacteria” matri-triggered. In short, kakambal mo na yan
I’m sharing this for you to be aware sa mga kinakain niyo. I’m not saying na lahat ng street foods ay madumi, yun din naman sabi sakin ng doctor. But please be cautious on eating street foods. Wag niyo na pong hintayin na maranasan niyo yung naranasan ko kasi realtalk bes, ang hirap po at ang sakit. Sa mga sure kayo na sanitize ang luto at preparation kagaya nung sa mga malls. Mas expensive syempre pero mas mahal magpagamot bes! Remember, health is wealth

Sa case ko, pangmayaman na daw ang tiyan ko sabi ni doktora BAWAL ng kumain ng street foods. So, sorry for me Eh di magpapaluto na lang ako kay mama Promise, nakakadala

Pag kayo po hindi tumigil sa pagkain ng mga street foods lalo na kung madumi magkakaroon din kayo niyan. Pwedeng same tayo ng parasite sa katawan or ibang type ang makuha mo. So, don’t let that happen. Hindi ko sinisiraan ang mga vendors ng street foods kasi hindi naman lahat ay madumi at hanap-buhay nila yan. What I’m saying is “Prevention is better than Cure.”

This is a lesson for everyone now. We don’t know how those foods are being processed so, better if we avoid them as early as now. “Prevention is better than cure.”
