Can I Eat Some Yogurt With Gastroenteritis
I've been hit with gastroenteritis. I've seen conflicting information on wether yogurt is good or bad to eat. Also wonder if I should take Pepto.
Yogurt may be hard to digest. I suggest a clear fluid diet as follows:
NO SOLID FOODS FOR 48 HOURS
Force fluids: 8-10 glasses/day:
Electrolyte rich fluids- Gatorade, Powerade, Vitamin Water
Protein rich fluids: broth bullion, consume.
AVOID ALL CITRUS JUICES: orange, grapefruit, pineapple, cranberry etc.
Avoid all aspirin, Advil, Aleve (naproxen) (NSAIDS).
If not improving go to private physician or ER. ...Read more

Is yogurt a decent source of probiotics while recovering from gastroenteritis (once you have started back with chicken broth and crackers at least and are 48 hrs passed the last diarrahea episode)? And can I take tums (calcium carbonate) for heartburn?

6 days since onset of gastroenteritis and stomach still feels uneasy...Still not eating much and what I eat is bland...Should I be eating more normal?
Should be better: In most cases gastroenteritis should improve within 48 hours, certainly in 72 hours. If you have not yet done so, consult with your pcp. He or she will likely run tests including but not limited to stool exam. If this is a recurrent issue, you may need to consider your diet and avoiding certain types of food groups. Example: avoidance of lactose or gluten are common culprits with many patients. ...Read more

Diarrhea getting worse after stopping the magnesium oxide? I haven't eaten anything with gluten and am not lactose intolerant. I did eat ham last night. Now it is liquid with undigested food. No vomiting but gassy. Gastroenteritis? Food poisoning?
First of all it takes a day for the magnesium oxide to get thru. Infection is pretty common. There can be other food intolerances. Personally, I have a little trouble with large amounts of fruit juice (> 12 ounces) and also if I eat anything that gives me hives EXTERnally gives loose stools and gas INTERNally.
Flagyl helps most infections. Increased fiber often helps. Cannot say in your particular ...Read more
You can, but Ritz crackers have considerably more fat content than saltines so are a little less gentle on an irritated stomach and bowel.
Rule of thumb: if it makes your nauseous or hurts your stomach, stop eating it and try again when you're feeling a bit better. If it doesn't cause pain or nausea, then you're good. ...Read more

Fluids and Carbs: It is wise to avoid spicy, acidic, and high-fat foods during illness with nausea/vomiting. Very restricted diet is not recommended because it will limit your calorie intake. Recovery from some symptoms can be calorie-dependent, so emphasize complex carbohydrates and don't be too restrictive. With diarrhea, avoid high sugar drinks (milk, juice), can increase gas, pain and number of stools. ...Read more
Simple = best: I find that simple, easy to digest material; noodles, macaroni & spaghetti without sauce, graham crackers, broths, steamed rice, apple sauce, some vegetables & boiled meats are all well tolerated by a recovering gut. Fried foods/acidic juices/milk or cheese & spicy foods will often lead to recurrent cramping or nausea if consumed too early. ...Read more
Simple carbohydrates: If still nauseated, drinking fluid is more important than eating. However, if you really feel like eating stick to very simple carbs...Soda crackers, white rice, popsicles, bananas. Not teh center of a healthy diet but also don't challenge an inflamed stomach. Even inflamed tissue can absorb simple sugars so you can get some calories. If you vomit, go back to clear liquids. ...Read more
