Can a 10 month old drink watered down gatorade?

Can a 10 month old drink watered down gatorade?

If needed: Gatorade has a high sugar content when compared to hydration products designed for infants/toddlers. In a pinch, it can be mixed 1/2 to 1/2 with water to create an oral hydration solution for kids with diarrhea/vomiting. I see no value in it otherwise & it would not be my first choice, but it could help avoid an excursion to the store in the middle of the night.

Does drinking gatorade increased bun creatinine?

Does drinking gatorade increased bun creatinine?

No: It's an alternative to soda pop that replenishes some of your electrolytes. If you're an athlete drinking this sports beverage, your BUN may be up from eating steak and your creatinine from putting on muscle. Labs mean nothing without a big picture.

What would be healthier to drink - diet coke or gatorade?

What would be healthier to drink - diet coke or gatorade?

Diet soda: My vote would be gatorade if done in moderation. There are studies that have shown that people who drink alot of soda are obese even if it is diet. The absolute right answer would be water. I usually tell my patients that if they eliminate liquid calories from their diet, that alone will help them drop significant pounds. Liquids pass through your stomach faster and do not keep you full.
