I feel bloated all the time. I exercise, eat a well balanced diet, lots of fiber vitamins and stay hydrated? I always seem to feel overly bloated?

Too much fiber?: Fiber is the non-digestible part of plants, etc. A byproduct of this incomplete digestion is gas. This may be the cause of your bloating. Check with your physician about maybe reducing your fiber intake or what else may be the cause. ...Read more

My vitamin d level is 12. My face is bloated since a few years. My thryoid, creatinine,cortisol etc are fine. Is the swelling due to my deficiency?I

My vitamin d level is 12. My face is bloated since a few years. My thryoid, creatinine,cortisol etc are fine. Is the swelling due to my deficiency?I

One way to find out: Low Vit. D causes many imbalances.
Face bloating isn't a classic symptom of low D, but it's possible it's connected. Whether it is or not, it's important to correct this for your overall health. When your D levels normalize you will see if your bloating improves. Most adults need 5-8000 iu of D3/day. Aim for levels of 50-80.

I am pregnant (19 weeks). I was sick (diarrhea & bloated stomach ). I did not eat a lot of vegetable, meat, milk in the past 10 days. I was eating chicken soup, banana and prenatal vitamin (jamieson). Will this impact the baby?

I am pregnant (19 weeks). I was sick (diarrhea & bloated stomach ). I did not eat a lot of vegetable, meat, milk in the past 10 days. I was eating chicken soup, banana and prenatal vitamin (jamieson). Will this impact the baby?

Probably not.: Even if you got a little dehydrated and had low-grade fever the answer would still be no. Only severe dehydration and prolonged high fevers could adversely impact the pregnancy and increase the risk of bleeding or pregnancy loss. No long-term effects should be expected from your fetus provided the pathogen did not cross the placenta. Listeria monocytogenes is a pathogen that could cause fetal loss. ...Read more

What can I take or do if I have taken too much vitamin d suppl? I'm having stomach pains bloating etc. My dr had me taking 20, 000 iu a day. Help!

What can I take or do if I have taken too much vitamin d suppl? I'm having stomach pains bloating etc.  My dr had me taking 20, 000 iu  a day. Help!

Stop it for now: Vitamin at 20, 000 iu is excessive. Typically, treatment for low vitamin d is about 50, 000iu per week. If using as supplement, 1000-2000 iu/day should be plenty. Anyhow, any medication/vitamin that is causing excessive side effects, stop it and inform doc why you had to do so. The treatment should not be worse than the condition itself. Get some natural vitd--the sun. Consult your doc. Good luck. ...Read more

I have been taking Virectin for about a week now, also with L-Arginine and vitamin C. I am experiencing some bloating in my stomach why?

Self induced: Your GI problems are almost certainly related the your Virectin and additional supplements.

Take the money you save and buy a health club membership. Regular exercise if better for you than these bogus meds. ...Read more

Lots of gas, bloating and green stools. Am taking a multi vitamin, the occasional antacid and codfish oil. Could these be causing the green stools?

Lots of gas, bloating and green stools. Am taking a multi vitamin, the occasional antacid and codfish oil. Could these be causing the green stools?

Yes: Codfish oil(cod liver oil) can speed up the transit of food
thru the gastrointestinal tract if taken in too high a dose.
Bile is green in color. As it travels thru the gut it's color is changed, eventually to brown. Greenish color can be the result of intestinal contents not remaining in the gut long enough to turn brown. Should return to normal color if codfish oil is stopped. SEE:abt.cm/144EnVu ...Read more

Pro mean with: and bio means life. Probiotics help the GI system digest food. Anti means against. So, if one takes excessive antibiotics they can kill off the good bacteria in our GI systems. This can happen w/out antibiotics at times too. So, the probiotics replace the good bacteria that are missing or low. Peace and good health. Ask doc about food sensitivity lab tests too. ...Read more

My stomach is bloating up a lot do to vitamin d probiotics vitamin b complex and gionvi birth control please help?

Difficult to say: Likely the vitamin d, b and birth control aren't causing your bloating. It could be the probiotics, but it could equally be something in your diet. The frequency and type of your stools might tell you about what's going on with your bloating. Make sure that you're drinking a lot of water, not soda. Exercise vigorously for 30-60 minutes a day, 7 days a week. See dr. If not better soon. ...Read more
