One important advice everyone should always keep in mind while adding something new to their diet is to find out if they are allergic to it. The same is the case with Kiwis too. No matter the numerous health benefits, it can be really harmful to those with a kiwi allergy. Signs of allergy can be as mild as an itchy throat, but could also include vomiting, difficulty swallowing, swollen tongue and even hives. People allergic to wheat, figs, avocado, poppy seed, hazelnut or latex are usually sensitive to kiwi. So taking your doctor’s advice is essential.
It is best to avoid kiwi if you have a chronic bleeding disorder as it can slow blood clotting or increase the bleeding. Stay away from kiwis if you have surgery scheduled in the near future.
