Can fruit juice cause diarrhea in adults? When i eat certain fruits or drink any fruit juice i get diarrhea, dizziness and extreme tiredness.

Diarrhea and juice: The basic fruit used in many fruit drinks is actually apple. Other juices are then added in for flavour.

Whole fruits are better. ...Read more

Can fruit juice cause my baby to have diarrhea? ?

Can fruit juice cause my baby to have diarrhea? ?

Babies don't need juice at all, and we prefer they get their vitamins from fruit, rather than the juice, which is made up of a lot of concentrated sugar.

Prime suspect: Has it stopped? If yes, it was probably the excessive fruit juice. Don't do it again to test it. But, if it's still happening, whatever it is, consider a doctor's exam and drink water to avoid dehydration. You also might ask a pharmacist for OTC advice until you see the doctor. ...Read more

Overactive bladder: Yes, this juice could cause an overactive bladder but there are many other reasons for an overactive bladder. For starters please stop taking the fruit juice. If after a week your bladder is under control - great! If not please see your doctor to find the real cause of an overactive bladder. ...Read more

Big difference: Eating fruits gives you a lot of fiber which is healthful for your bowel functions. Juices have too much sugar and will make you eat more as high sugar leads to increased hunger due to high Insulin levels which follow after consuming sugary drinks. ...Read more
