Will I have to stay an a low oxalate diet because of antibiotics?

Here are some. ..: A nice Q, but I have never confronted it over my >45 yrs studying, training, & practicing urology. But generally speaking, taking low oxalate diet for stone prevention is not an urgent measure; therefore, you may be off this diet while taking antibiotics, which is usually a short-term use. More? Ask your doc timely.

Diet (Definition)

Refers to all the physical matter humans (like all living creatures) must take in on a recurring basis; only partially for energy. Like all life on planet humans are open systems which keep tearing down their structure & require intake of atoms/molecules from which to rebuild their structure. Intestinal lining cells replaced ~every 3 days. CaPO4 in bones ~every 6 years, ...Read more

On Antibiotics - says you need food with them - On a shake diet at the moment - is that ok? Or do you think it's food need to eat - thank you

On Antibiotics - says you need food with them - On a shake diet at the moment - is that ok? Or do you think it's food need to eat - thank you

Food w/medications: Hello to buffer the stomach so you don't have GI symptoms. The food can also help to body to metabolize the medicine. Please speak w/y0ur doc about this but if the shake works for you that sounds good. Peace and good health.

I'm on an hCG diet would I need to avoid antibiotics?

I'm on an hCG diet would I need to avoid antibiotics?

No: I think that has kinda been, well, banned or something? In any event the bhcg's will not interfere with antibiotics. We gone abx to pregnant women all the time. Good luck with the diet, I'm not sure about whether it's banned but I think it got some bad press.

Do you think the brat diet will help someone having side effects from antibiotics?

Do you think the brat diet will help someone having side effects from antibiotics?

See below: If you are having diarrhea from antibiotics, I would eat yogurt and take something called florastor. Floratsor is a probiotic which will help replenish beneficial bacteria in the GI tract.

Is there a special diet I have to go on when you have a uti? I already got checked I'm already on antibiotics

Is there a special diet I have to go on when you have a uti? I already got checked I'm already on antibiotics

No diet: There is no special diet for the treatment of UTI. Some drink cranberry juice however to help the antibiotics, but its not necessary. It won't hurt either. Hope this helps!

Is it possible for you to take antibiotics on hCG diet?

I would stop it.: Let your doctor know you are on the diet. If you are taking drops or internet product I would recommend stopping as that won't work. If you are taking injectable and you have an infection, it might be best to stop to let your body recover, as the ketotic effects may interfere with the distribution and effects from the medication.

Can the brat diet work for diarrhea caused by an antibiotic?

A little: Due to the imbalance of healthy bacteria killed by the antibiotics, you need to establish good bacteria in the colon. There are foods that can help do this in addition to the brat diet. Whole wheat products, bananas help for short chained fructooligosaccharides which promote the growth of healthy bacteria in the colon and reestablish the balance between yeast and good bacteria.

I was wondering does the brat diet work for diarrhea caused by an antibiotic?

I was wondering does the brat diet work for diarrhea caused by an antibiotic?

YEs: Bananas- have fiber which will help soak up some of the diarrhea liquid White rice- cooked of course Applesauce- has soluble fiber which also helps bind the stool Tea- try decaff - you need fluids- water or decaff tea, You don't want the caffeine- cause it makes you urinate- and that is dehydrating, and the caffeine can also make you cramp and worsen the diarrhea

After I'm done w/ 10 days of antibiotics for SIBO, can I go back to eating a normal diet right away, or should I stay on SCD while taking probiotics?

After I'm done w/ 10 days of antibiotics for SIBO, can I go back to eating a normal diet right away, or should I stay on SCD while taking probiotics?

Stay on SCD: I would carefully introduce prebiotics that are appropriate for the SCD diet. Continue the SCD diet for a while symptoms improve. When ready gradually reintroduce foods that are organic one at a time to evaluate your response to them.

How to make infected wound heal faster? I've got my oral antibiotic and antibiotic ointment, how long does it takes to heal? What should be on my diet?

How to make infected wound heal faster? I've got my oral antibiotic and antibiotic ointment, how long does it takes to heal? What should be on my diet?

Patience.: If you take your antibiotic and apply the ointment, it will heal. Give it time. If it stops improving, the bacteria may be resistant to that particular antibiotic, and you should call your doctor. But as long as it's improving, however slowly, let it continue to heal. There is no way to artificially speed up this process, including modifying your diet. Just eat healthy and be patient.

Does the brat diet help someone having side effects from taking antibiotics?

Does the brat diet help someone having side effects from taking antibiotics?

Diarrhea: Yes, the brat diet will likely help you because it has constipating foods. The other thing that will help is taking probiotics along with the antibiotics. Probiotics are good bacteria for the intestinal tract and can be purchased without a prescription. You can get them at your local drugstore and also online. 2 brands: florastor and also florajen. Good luck!

I'm on a low fibre diet for a few weeks after a diverticulitis attack still have running poo is this ok. I still on antibiotics?

I'm on a low fibre diet for a few weeks after a diverticulitis attack still have running poo is this ok. I still on antibiotics?

Yes: It is ok. You colon is still reacting and recovering from inflammation. This is a common finding. Things, however, to be careful for. It should not be worsening. No fevers/chills. If the runny stool is pure water, that is concerning. If it is so much that it can dehydrate you, that is concerning. Overall, if it is not slowly improving, see your doctor. If worse at any point, see your doctor.

Why have I been bloating for 6 months straight? I've been bloated for 6 months straight, it has never stopped nor gotten any better. I never changed anything in my diet and I did take an antibiotic 6 months ago but I started bloating after I took the last

Why have I been bloating for 6 months straight? I've been bloated for 6 months straight, it has never stopped nor gotten any better. I never changed anything in my diet and I did take an antibiotic 6 months ago but I started bloating after I took the last

You: You may be dealing with a colitis, irritable bowel, an unknown allergy, or lactose intolerance. I am not quite sure if your symptoms are related to the antibiotic you were taking or merely a coincidence. Regardless see your primary care doctor and possible a GI doctor (gastroenterologist) for evaluation, work up and treatment. Best of luck.

How to heal autoimmune disorder? Vegan diet? Juicing? Just eat greens? What's best way? Against antibiotics-

How to heal autoimmune disorder? Vegan diet? Juicing? Just eat greens? What's best way? Against antibiotics-

No sure way: Thus far, no dietary modification has been proven to affect autoimmune disease. However one may conjecture that a diet with limited animal but higher marine fat intake may possibly reduce the inflammation from an autoimmune disorder.

Is it possible for diverticulitis to come back in a month after a 2 week antibiotic treatment even if trying to stick to a diet?

Is it possible for diverticulitis to come back in a month after a 2 week antibiotic treatment even if trying to stick to a diet?

Yes: 35 year old gentleman s/p 2 week treatment for diverticular disease now with unknown symptoms recurring. You should contact your treating physician immediately and if you have severe symptoms go to the ER. Diverticulosis is an anatomical problem that can lead to diverticulitis, the infection/abscess associated with the infection can be resistant or recur. Prior CT scan results helpful. Good luck.

I was diagnosed with severe gastritis from NSAIDs made worse by antibiotics. Taking Prilosec 2x day and bland diet. How long for pain to subside?

I was diagnosed with severe gastritis from NSAIDs made worse by antibiotics. Taking Prilosec 2x day and bland diet. How long for pain to subside?

Could be a while: Could be as short as a fee days but sometimes it can take time for the stomach to heal, on the order of a couple of weeks. As long as you are slowly (or quickly) improving, that is the most important thing.

I've had diverticulitis for 3 weeks low fiber diet and 3 rounds of antibiotics only little improvement taking lots of fluids any other suggestions?

I've had diverticulitis for 3 weeks low fiber diet and 3 rounds of antibiotics only little improvement taking lots of fluids any other suggestions?

Is diagnosis correct: I have taken care of patients with diverticulitis in their 30's but is uncommon. Was diagnosis made with CT scan? The usual protocol is to confirm diagnosis with CT if not pregnant and treat with appropriate antibiotics and low residue diet. If no improvement either change oral antibiotics or go into hospital for IV antibiotics and gut rest. Repeat scan 10-14 days if still no improvement

It's been 10day after antibiotics for diverticulitis still feeling sore after BM what can I do not to get constipated but still keep low fibr diet?

It's been 10day after antibiotics for diverticulitis still feeling sore after BM what can I do not to get constipated but still keep low fibr diet?

Prevent constipation: What's wrong with fiber? You should be ingesting lots of fiber if you're having problems with BMs. I suggest something like Metamucil 1 tbsp daily mixed with a full glass of water.
