Does Acai Berry Cause Diarrhea
Why does eating wheat berries lead to fatty diarrhea but eating bread only occasionally leads to diarrhea where gluten intolerance is suspected?
Gluten content...: ...Can be much lower in bread, and up to 15% in wheat berries. If the symptoms are dose related, this would make sense.
Loose stools is a symptom in which a person's stool (poop) does not hold its shape after it goes into the toilet. Instead of remaining a shaped piece of poop, the poop spreads out in the toilet bowl water. Very loose stool is called diarrhea. Loose stool can be caused by infections, certain foods or drinks, ...Read more
What do I need to expect while taking acai berry supplements for the first time? Do they give weird side effects, like diarrhea or nausea or vomiting?
2days abdomen swollen. Nonstop diarrhea 1st day, 2nd day 2 formed stools very light tan color. Eating oatmeal, yogurt & berries due to nausea. Normal?
Normal: Stay on a bland diet for a few days, nothing greasy or fried.
Sour diarrhea?: What do you mean by "sour diarrhea"? Are you talking about the smell? How long have you had this? Any other symptoms associated with it? If your symptoms persist or get worse, then you should probably see a doctor. A lot of diarrhea resolves on its own within a couple of days. I wish you the best.
Only if: Acai berrys are only good if you're trying to lose weight in your wallet. Why would you take something when you don't know what's in it or whether it'll harm you -- particularly when it won't help you. Don't get your medical information from friends, tv or the internet. Invest in healthy nutrition, weight loss, diet, etc.See 1 more doctor answer
Long list: Osmotic, secretory or exudative? Running a possible list of causes for diarrhea: Acute gastroenteritis (viral or bacterial infection), food intolerance/ allergy, recent antibiotic use, IBDs (crohns or ulcerative colitis), osmotic diarrhea from non absorbable sugars (i.e. sorbitol), malabsorption, spurious diarrhea, thyroid disorders. If it's been more than a couple days he should see his doctor for eval
Normally shouldn't: In kids occasionally, or if you already have underlying GI symptoms, the sugars in gatorade can act as an osmotic force bringing water into intestines leading to diarrhea. Normally this should not occur. If it continues, see your primary.
Same as anywhere: First define the problem (soft or frequent stool?), circumstances under which diarrhea develops (malabsorption, pancreatic maldigestion, food intolerances, stressful times, exposure to ill individuals/infections, food poisoning, ischemic gut, inflammatory colitis, etc.), severity (stool volume, dehydration, blood, night-time awakening, weight loss), & duration. The "cure" depends on the above.
Wt loss- antioxidant: The acai berry contains antioxidants (phytochemicals) which reduce free radical formation & are reported to help protect from some cancers. It is also reported to assist with weight loss however there is not yet scientific research to back this claim nor is a mechanism for weight loss known at this time. It is also used as an oil in cosmetics.
Light (clay) colored: Bile & your gut's bacterial flora account in large part for color & volume of stool. Absence of bile results in pale, clay-color stool. Lots of other things also affect stool appearance: ingested foods, medications (peptobismol, antacids), swallowed blood or bleeding from gut, infection/antibiotics, inflammation, maldigestion, & the amount of mucus mixed with stool, as well as transit time of food.
Yes: Most antibiotics can cause diarrhea while they are being taken. Some antibiotics can cause an overgrowth of clostridium difficile (also known as "c-diff"), and this causes serious diarrhea, especially in the elderly. This diarrhea can occur as much as 6 weeks after stopping the antibiotic. Patients should notify their physician is they have diarrhea while taking or after taking antibiotics.See 1 more doctor answer
