Bread Mouldy Days
Yest I ate pot salad coleslaw and half a sandwich on whole wheat bread and today can't stop having loose still. Is this normal?
No, however...: No, that is not at all normal. The most likely possibilities are either an intestinal virus (which would mean it has nothing to do with what you ate) or a mild case of food poisoning. If potato salad or coleslaw are kept unrefrigerated for several hours bacteria can grow that produce toxins that cause diarrhea. This is not an infection, In either case, you will likely feel better in a day or two. ...Read more
Flatulence nonstopAfter ate nuts see white pieces in stool.vomit after ate avocado&linseedoil.Smellystool fart.bad concentration&memory.dryskinhairlos?
Wow...lots of issues: I don't think we can really put all these things together into a common condition. There are clearly some gastrointestinal issues with the gas..not that concerned about white pieces after nuts or vomiting after linseed oil. Biggest cause of concentration and memory issues at your age is stress. Would check thyroid as under active gland could contribute to all. Work with your doctor. Good wishes:) ...Read more

Are sprouted grains like Ezekiel bread safe during pregnancy? I had a sprouted wheat bagel this morning and Ezekiel sandwich later - is there a limit?
Ate granola bars w/ brown rice syrup daily (sometimes 2/day) including when pregnant. Worried about arsenic (also ate cereal with rice daily).?
Likely not an issue: The reports linking rice consumption to arsenic has scared many folks, but the data is not completely clear. For the most part i would not worry especially for an adult, unless rice intake was much, much greater than described. To lessen exposure:rinse rice thoroughly before cooking, be sure water supply levels are low, cook/drain like pasta(^ parts to 1 water to rice), or use basmati or jasmine rice. ...Read more

Bad gastralgia after eating ihop yesterday. Diarrhea followed n still hurts today & have diarrhea. Had an hash brown, bacon, lettuce and bread. Y?
Gastroenteritis: This is often due to a viral illness that may or may not have anything to do with ihop. If due to the food the most likely culprit would have been mayonnaise on the BLT since it may contain staphylococcal toxins if left out too long. But you may have gotten this from a friend. Hope you feel better soon. Best. ...Read more

I've been eatin constantly, bread candy chicken, taco bell, carb after carb, never get full. Could I have a worm?
Doubtful.: More likely a compulsive eating habit, or a very fast metabolism. ...Read more
Scalp tingling when eating? I get it everytime I start eating. I had a roast beef sandwich once, pizza another, eggs w/onions, cheeseburgers,etc.
Scalp tingling: It's unrealistic to expect that one's every little quirk or idiosyncrasy has a precise explanation. For someone who's only 23 & already with HBP, your diet is pretty toxic: Roast beef, pizza, eggs, cheeseburgers... Maybe it's your body's way of telling you it doesn't like what you're feeding it. Does your scalp tingle when you eat fresh fruits & vegetables? Salads WITHOUT full-fat ranch dressing? ...Read more
If I eat lettuce, raw carrots, steamed broccoli and beets, grated cheese and one piece of meat daily for breakfast lunch and dinner will I lose weighr?
Depends On A Lot: That all depends on your current weight, body fat to muscle ratio, amount you eat and total daily calories ingested, your activity level and overall basal metabolic rate. One thing for sure, you're on the right track in terms of WHAT you eat, although you didn't specify what KINDS of meat you eat or if you ever might eat some vegetable sources of protein.I think that just might cover it. ...Read more
Crab cakes i ate (6 weeks pregnant) had been prepared but not cooked (well, crab meat already cooked) a few days in advance. Would I have gotten sick if?
16 weeks pregnant- ate some pasteurized feta from a container and noticed later that two of the pieces (crumbles) were blue moldy. Listeria concern?
Listeria is a: bacteria, not a mold, so that would not be a concern with the feta you mentioned. You can't see Listeria in/on the food. If you didn't eat the moldy pieces, you should have no problem with that either. ...and most likely, even if you did, it would not affect you or your baby. ...Read more

I am a diabetic five days a week I have one peanut butter sandwich on wheat bread and I have avocado is that OK .
That's a lotta fat.: Granted it's not saturated fat, which is present in red meat for example, but you've listed a fairly large intake of fat, which albeit healthier fat could nonetheless contribute to your total caloric intake and contribute to weight gain. Diabetics need to keep their weight in check. I would advise you to cut this back to once or twice weekly, and not the PB and avocado on the same day. ...Read more
Is it ok to give solid food like brown bread and cheerios to 20 months old 2 days after recovering from dysentery?If not what is the recomended food?
So i eat very healthy. all organic. i try to stay away from dairy and bread type things. i eat lots of vegies. yet i cant lose any weight. even after working out at least 3-4 days a week. Also im always hungry no matter what i eat im constantly wanting mo
Continue good Eating: HABIT. As for the weight loss, you may want to make sure your Thyroid function is normal. Calorie intake according to your height and weight should be calculated. Veggies if they are high in Carb, or if you are eating Sugary stuff that also prevents from loosing weight. Quantity also matters. Good luck. ...Read more

6 days left of Lamisil (terbinafine) course. Diarrhea for past 10 days, worsening now. Diet consist of bananas, bread, h2o only. Can you recommend a probiotic pleas?
Probiotics...: Two probiotics i trust and recommend to my patients are align and vsl #3. In addition to the brat diet which you appear to be on, you could try taking an anti-diarrheal such as kaopectate or Imodium (loperamide) to help control frequency of diarrhea. Your bottom will thank you if you switch from tp to flushable wet wipes. Good luck. ...Read more
Just noticed mold on our bread and I have eaten a bunch of bread the past few days - not sure when it appeared. 32 weeks pregnant. Can it hurt baby?
Nope! No worries!: Even obviously moldy bread, if somehow eaten, would not cause anything but perhaps a bit of stomach upset, and that is unlikely. Stomach acid breaks down the mold, which does not affect your baby at all. Consider that many cheeses have live molds that flavor them, and we eat them without ill effects. Furthermore, your baby's immune system is developing quite nicely at 32 weeks, so don't worry! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Fasting BG persisting from 105 to 110mg/dl despite 1 hr exercise n sugar free diet except 3 whole wheat bread n veg, meat. HBA1c was 5.9% 30 days ago.
I have cut out breads, starches this week. For the last 2 days..Ive been passing gas a lot and frequently urinating.
Welcome to Low Carb: Very typical reaction if you are going extremely low carb......The next day or so the constipation will set in as well. Possibly try increasing your carbs a little but just make them more complex....Instead of simple sugars. For example "whole grain oatmeal or pasta" instead of "regular oatmeal and white pasta". ...Read more
I am a vegetarian I do not eat any refined carbs or pasta rice or bread or sugar. I workout 7 days . What is blocking weight loss?
It's also how much: It doesn't matter if you'e vegetarian or carnivore - you need to burn off less than you take in to lose weight. You may also need to be checked for thyroid, pcos, etc which can make it hard to lose weight. See a good registered dietitian about your caloric allotment and expenditure. ...Read more
Stomach hurts on and off for days, when i eat something like crackers or bread I have to go to the bathroom.Then my belly hurts for hours.Any idea why?
What would cause that on occasion that the smell of bread, rusk, pizze etc would make you vomit? sometimes even a wrapped bread would send me running.
Symptoms last min to weeks and days to a year can pass before it reacurs
Vagus nerve: Apparently these odors stimulate the vagus nerve resulting in reflex nausea and vomiting. This reaction can be blocked by taking atropine type medications or anticholinergics. Some people with this hyperreaction to odors get help by taking peppermint oil tablets(not the liquid). ...Read more
Celiac disease. My doctor put me eat bread with gluten and took blood sample. Two days fatigue, no sleep. Celiac rash. This is wrong! What can I do?
It IS wrong: Unfortunately, insurance companies won't pay benefits unless the blood work is positive, and it will usually not be positive if you are already under treatment. So celiac patients are forced to become sick once again. The US health care system is horribly dysfunctional. I'm sorry this happened, but your physician is as trapped in it as you are. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
