Can Drinking Orange Juice Make Your Stomach Hurt
I never drink orange juice but decided to have a small drink yesterday, it burned my stomach so bad and now it's hurts so bad. Is that a ulcer?
Orange juice: Contains citric acid but it is not strong enough to "burn" unless you have gastritis (generalized inflammation) A gastric ulcer is unlikely to have been "silent" until the range juice!!!! You may be one of those rare individuals who react this way to orange (and other citric acid containing) foods! Hope this helps Dr Z
No: Orange juice is an acid and should be avoided if you have stomach issues.
Hard to believe: There is no good reason for this. The difference between water and the other substances is not much and pretty inconsequential given the contents of your stomach. If anything it should be the other way around.
Stomach very sensitive. For example, if I sleep only 6 hours, I have a sensitive stomach all day. If I wait longer than around 15 mins, w/out eating anything or drinking juice, stomach ache all day. Already tested for hyperthyroidism, negative. Any suggest
Non ulcer dyspepsia: Please check "The Gut Solution". We wrote a book about this very common problem and deveoped the SEEDS program to help treat the problem. We have a web site that will help.
Orange Juice: "the american journal of clinical nutrition." vitamin c, an essential vitamin that cannot be synthesized by the human body, is an important antioxidant, a substance that protects the body against the harmful effects of free radicals, the molecules that may cause tissue damage and early aging.
Yes: Healthy and can drink it any time. Be careful of number of calories.See 1 more doctor answer
No: Eating fruits is healthy but drinking them is not. It takes a lot of oranges to make a glass of orange juice, and you don't need that much sugar. So eat fruits and vegetables and drink milk and water.
No: The risk of allergy is the same.
Doesn't matter: That doesn't matter. It's a matter of taste only. The only thing that matters is to make sure it's pure juice with no added sugar.
Asking Honestly?: For health the best answer is that one should not drink their calories. You are asking about common drinks that are full of sugars. There is rapidly gathering evidence that adults and milk do not go well together. If you have any weight or sugar problem yet this is highly important information to understand.
Yes: Sure, no problem. Or any other food you wish. There are no foods or drugs that interfere with amoxicillin.
Celiac: As long as prune juice and orange juice contain only the juices of those fruits, they should be fine. But I would beware of certain additives and preservatives that may contain gluten. For instance, certain stabilizers and thickeners contain gluten.
Is it possible for a newborn who's over a month old to get jondis from breastmilk cos of the carrots n orange juice I'm drinking?
See Doctor Now: Breastfed 1 month old, "jondis"? Jaundice is caused by liver & blood disorders. It can lead to brain damage in infants. Breast milk is one out of many causes & is harmless. Foods containing beta carotene (carrots) can discolor the skin but this is not jaundice. Because jaundice can have life- threatening causes your baby must see the doctor now to determine the correct diagnosis and treatment.See 1 more doctor answer
It might: Some dermatologists advise their acne patients to stay away from acidic citric juices, and others feel that the high sugar content may also make acne worse. If you are going to drink orange juice, you might be better with getting oranges and squeezing them yourself, since it is less acidic and doesn't have all the added sugar or sweetners as well as pasteurization.
Juices not needed: Juices are the equivalent of giving a baby a coke. The sweetness factor contributes to water refusal. If u want baby to have the benefits of an apple, give apple sauce;oranges, peaches, pears, grapes etc. All benefit the child more when given as a natural food, not a refined extracted juice.See 1 more doctor answer
9 mo, but not needed: I would say about nine months, but in moderation. Juice--even natural juice--has a lot of sugar, and isn't as nutritious as all the hype suggests. Better than 'juice drinks', yes, but not that much better. I often suggest diluting it. But, juice is not necessary for your child. It has vitamin c, yes, but that is easily obtained from many other sources.
