According to Healthline, there are certain individuals who may need to remove garlic from their diet due to potential adverse effects or interactions. Here are some cases where garlic should be avoided.
Allergies: Some individuals may have allergies to garlic, experiencing symptoms such as skin rash, itching, swelling, or respiratory issues. If you have a known allergy to garlic, it is important to avoid it in all forms.
Digestive issues: Garlic can be difficult to digest for some people, leading to gastrointestinal symptoms like heartburn, indigestion, or bloating. If you have a sensitive digestive system or conditions such as acid reflux or irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), it may be best to avoid or limit garlic consumption.
Bleeding disorders: Garlic has blood-thinning properties, which can interfere with blood clotting. Individuals with bleeding disorders or those taking blood-thinning medications like warfarin should avoid or carefully monitor their garlic intake, as it can increase the risk of bleeding.
Pre-surgery: Garlic can interfere with blood clotting and may increase the risk of bleeding during and after surgery. It is generally recommended to stop consuming garlic at least two weeks before any scheduled surgery.
Medication interactions: Garlic can interact with certain medications, including anticoagulants, antiplatelet drugs, and some HIV medications. It's important to consult with a healthcare professional if you are taking any medications to understand potential interactions.
It's worth noting that while garlic has many potential health benefits, individual responses and sensitivities may vary. If you have any concerns or specific health conditions, it's best to seek advice from a healthcare professional before making significant dietary changes.
