Poison food caused diarrhea and spewing in the same time. I had only red and green apple and black tea in this time. What shoud I choose? Thanks

Poison food caused diarrhea and spewing in the same time. I had only red and green apple and black tea in this time. What shoud I choose? Thanks

Food poisoning: The body purges itself from poison through vomiting and diarrhea. Please see your doctor to make sure all is well otherwise. Any tea is a good idea because you will need to replace body fluids. I prefer green tea but the black tea will likely have more beneficial compounds in it than the apple tea. Peace and good health.

I've had diarrhea all week. Could it be caused by the Apple cider I've been drinking? I haven't felt sick to my stomach at all

Not likely: But possible depending on the amount ingested. Best would be to stop it for few days and see if stools are improving. This measure should answer your question.

My son gets diarrhea from whatever fruits he eats, only exception is apple.?

My son gets diarrhea from whatever fruits he eats, only exception is apple.?

High sugar & fiber: All fruits have fructose, a sugar that can be hard to digest, like lactose in milk. In addition, they both have a high water and fiber content, which tends to give a softer, larger stool. The amount and type of fiber varies with each fruit, so some are more problematic than others. There is no treatment other than adjusting intake.

I have had diarrhea for about a week now after I ate some apple pie. It is not as liquidity as it was, but I still have it, so what do you recommend?

I have had diarrhea for about a week now after I ate some apple pie. It is not as liquidity as it was, but I still have it, so what do you recommend?

Continue: To allow it to resolve on its own. If the apple pie has caused an infection, it is better for it to resolve on its own. You may want to try probiotics to try and re establish normal bowel fora. Fatty foods often help resolve diarrhea. All the best and if it is not resolving, see your doctor for stool testing and a colonoscopy.

Is it common for almost 3 year olds to get acidic diarrhea from apple juice?

Is it common for almost 3 year olds to get acidic diarrhea from apple juice?

Some do some do not: Some kids are fructose intolerant so the fruit sugar in apple juice is not absorbed and can result in acidic diarrhea. They would react similarly to other fructose containing fruit juices. Many do not. Some will after a diarrhea that temporarily reduces their ability to digest fructose.

Can apple cider vinegar give you diarrhea?

Yes: Apple cider vinegar is touted as a treatment for constipation and many people end up with too much of a good thing. Loose watery bowel movements should tell you to back off. Vinegar is basically Acetic Acid which can interfere with absorption of certain medicines, minerals, and vitamins so always talk to your provider too.

My 4 yr old cant eat apples, applesauce or fruit chews w/ tiny amts of apple or= bad diarrhea. Now nectarine = same. What other fruit should he avoid?

Diarrhea: This is going to be a matter of trial and error I'm afraid. In order to see what will affect him you will have to add specific foods to his diet one at a time and see if he has a reaction. Realise that many of use if we eat to much of any fruit will have loose stool just because of all the natural sugars in the fruit.

Hello I have the stomach and I really can't walk but it has been 3 hours since I have vommited and had diarrhea. Would I be able to eat apple sauce?

Virus: The combination of vomiting and diarrhea usually is due to either food poisoning or a viral infection of the gastrointestinal tract. Either way the course simply runs itself out without any specific treatment except a bland, low roughage diet while you're still having any symptoms. Ginger ale, soft foods like apple sauce are ok.

My son gets diarrhea every time he eats any amount of apples, I'm inclined to think he has an intolerance, but have not heard of a reaction to just a few slices of an apple. He has seasonal allergies & chronic bumps on arms/legs look like pimples.

My son gets diarrhea every time he eats any amount of apples, I'm inclined to think he has an intolerance, but have not heard of a reaction to just a few slices of an apple. He has seasonal allergies & chronic bumps on arms/legs look like pimples.

Intolerance: Rather than having an allergic reaction to Apple's, I believe that his intestinal tract doesn't tolerate the skin of the Apple which is insoluble. Try peeling the Apple before feeding it to him. Chronic bumps in his skin may need a dermatologist's evaluation to determine whether they're an allergic reaction to something internal or external. An allergist may also be helpful in this regard.

Will apples help stop diarrhea my 8 months old baby has diarrhea?

Will apples help stop diarrhea my 8 months old baby has diarrhea?

No: The fiber might help bulk the stools a bit, but apple juice can actually make it worse. Loose poop is often normal in an 8mo child who is trying new foods, or who may have a short-lived illness. If the baby is otherwise healthy (drinking well, active, playful, & normal urine output), then it'll likely pass on its own. If it's chronic, or other symptoms, or you're worried, talk to your pediatrician

Can apples help to stop diarrhea my 8 months old baby has diarrhea?

May be: Apple or apple sauce for babies does help diarrhea. It has pectin that is same ingredient in kaopectate (kaolin and pectin).It is also recommended when a baby has diarrhea as it provides potassium that you loose in diarrhea. You might need to take the baby to a pediatrician or a family doctor if symptoms persist. Also make sure that baby gets plenty of fluids, bananas, jello, & cereals.
