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

Recently found out have low potassium, added 2 banana's, orange juice and tomoato juice to diet but causing loose stools, concerned counterproductive?

Recently found out have low potassium, added 2 banana's, orange juice and tomoato juice to diet but causing loose stools, concerned counterproductive?

Why is it low?: Do you know why is it low? Is it because you're on medicines that artificially lower it? There are rare genetic conditions that can lower potassium? Or was this a random lab finding. If it was a random finding, realize potassium levels can fluctuate moment to moment. Also machines have error too. If its borderline low, don't go nuts with a high potassium diet. If it's markedly low, talk to doc! ...Read more
